Led by Sean O'Hagan, the London electropop outfit the High Llamas are well known for their Beach Boys fixation, though their focus has always been more on the legendary California band's post-SURF'S UP period (with plinking banjos and chiming vibraphones much to the fore), than on any imitation of its ethereal harmonies. BUZZLE BEE blends a variety of sunny 1960s influences with space-age electronic effects reminiscent of Stereolab (whose Mary Hansen contributes guest vocals), combining them with O'Hagan's downbeat lyrics on tracks like the period piece "Get Into the Galley Shop" and the ethereal "Passing Bell."
