Whilst lamenting the new direction of The High Llamas on a regular cycle around his particular corner of South-East London, Sean O’Hagan decided to give the next album a narrative structure. Because of this, he also decided that the story within the songs must be performed as a play first. And that’s exactly what happened. Here Come The Rattling Trees has been performed in several places in London throughout 2014 and now the album, which is full of typically intelligent, soft and melodic moments, is available for you to enjoy. Lyrically, it has a story arc that focuses on Amy. Amy meets several characters who, in turn, tell their own story. CD and LP on Drag City.
