On the 15 June, Italian-based collective Lay Llamas released
their second album, the critically acclaimed Thuban – a
travelogue powered by a pan-global fascination with rhythmic
hypnosis and an unquenchable experimental mindset.
The album was quickly picked up by BBC Radio 6 Music and
the music press alike as Thuban mapped out a unique terrain in
which collaborations with the likes of Mark Stewart, Clinic,
Goat and Julie’s Haircut contributed to the air of earthy
vibrancy and fertile exploration.

Since the album’s release Nicola Giunta, the alchemist behind
Lay Llamas decided to revisit tracks off the album, and the
first ones to be released are the non single tracks Coffins on
the Tree, a Black Brain on Our Way to Home which features
on vocals Luca Giovanardi from fellow Italian band Julie’s
Haircut, and the mighty Fight Fire with Fire which features
the poignant spoken word from The Pop Group’s vocalist
Mark Stewart.

Nicola said “These two tracks represent a step ahead, or better,
inside the sound material which Thuban album is made of.
The dub music concept itself is basically about the process of
stripping down, filtering and modifying that lead the original
track into a new dimension. It’s like bringing out new and
precious objects from a well known cave. Objects sometimes
hazy, not so in focus, but warm and rich of memories heritage
anyway. Filtering through a burnt lens. Like the tale from a last
night dream that you can’t remember in details but you need to
bring out anyway. A different point of view.”
