Music Reviews - The High Llamas: Lollo Rosso

The High Llamas: Lollo Rosso

“Combine one part Paul McCartney, three parts Brian Wilson, and a hint of Lawrence Welk’s characteristic schmaltz and you get the transcendental pop of the High Llamas. Allow the world’s best electro-trance artists to re-mix these silver-toned melodies and you get Lollo Rosso - a ground-breaking new record from the High Llamas that successfully blends bright melodies with the best of ambient beats….”

They also claim to have produced the world’s first “cassette tape player/recorder in 1951″.
