We've got an album of top quality stoned kraut-psych business here from Rome-based duo Lay Llamas on the mighty Rocket Recordings this week. As so very often happens nowadays, there's a hastily-scribbled post-it note on it. This one says "Promo has been around forever. Extended psych jams. First track nicks 'Psycho Killer' bassline". Listening to it now I reckon it's the second track 'We Are You' that has a similar bassline, but then it's a pretty simple and effective bassline, I don't reckon it was intentional, and that detail aside these guys don't sound a bit like the Talking Heads.   It's a warm and repetitive brand of psych-rock that they're dealing in, full of gently enveloping passages of deeply layered guitar twinkles and flute tooting, warm cyclic basslines locked in with patiently puttering drums while dreamy reverbed vocals sometimes take it in a slight Tame Impala direction - although the vocals are used sparingly and the hypnotic instro-psych doodlings have a drawn-out lightness to them that reminds me of Causa Sui or Black Bombaim, but with plenty of synths and varied instrumentation that sometimes makes me think of a more hippie-ish Teeth of the Sea. I've enjoyed this, relaxing and uplifting krautedelic adventures.
