From the Magic Stick site:
"Beautiful pop music that earns many a comparison to Brian Wilson and the Beach Boys. While this resemblance can certainly be heard in the High Llamas' unmistakeable harmonies and the cheery, light quality of their music, many other influences inform the Llamas' sound, including the work of Steely Dan, Ennio Morricone, Burt Bacharach, and Joao and Astrud Gilberto--as well as decidedly more "electronic" acts like Stereolab and Mouse on Mars. In fact, it is the fusion of such seemingly disparate genres as melodic '60s pop and modern electronic music that makes the High Llamas so compelling. They are assuredly a band to watch. With opener AZITA - former Scissor Girl checks in with postpunk piano ballads. Doors at 8PM, 18+, $10."
