Lay Llamas reveal killer first track to their forthcoming album 'Thuban'
It has been 4 years since Lay Llamas released their debut album 'Østro' and we are excited to announce the release of their official follow up called 'Thuban'. You can hear the first track to be revealed from the album, the sax heavy stomper 'Silver Sun' above.
"Comparable only to the aquatic funk of Can." The Quietus
"Lay Llamas summon the paganistic and the primitive." Drowned in Sound

'Thuban' is released on 15 June and the album features contributions from Goat, The Pop Group's Mark Stewart and Clinic. The 8 track album album is the brainchild of Nicola Giunta, and involved as many of twelve different musicians yet with Nicola writing lyrics, singing, producing, mixing and recording at his home, whilst utilising new instruments from marimba to sax to kalimba to pilot this craft to dimensions unknown. The result has been a step beyond the kraut-damaged psychedelic mantras of 'Østro' into a realm seemingly without boundaries, one in which a pan-global fascination with rhythmic hypnosis and an unquenchable experimental zeal manifests hermetically-aligned revelations aplenty.
The album is available on LP and CD and you can preorder the ltd orange/black swirl from here: Bandcamp
