Acclaimed musician and composer Sean O'Hagan is the third in our series of musical New Year's Resolutions

The High Llamas are an Anglo-Irish avant-pop band formed in London circa 1991. They were founded by singer-songwriter Sean O'Hagan, formerly of Microdisney, with drummer Rob Allum and ex-Microdisney bassist Jon Fell. O'Hagan has led the group since its formation. Their music is often compared to the Beach Boys, who he acknowledges as an influence, although more prominent influences were drawn from bossa nova and European film soundtracks.

Sean O'Hagan has a gift for orchestral pop, creating lush soundscapes that are awash with sonic detail. He clearly owes a lot to Brian Wilson, and Hawaii, the High Llamas' third album, falls somewhere between Pet Sounds and SMiLE. Sonically, the rich, orchestrated production is reminiscent of the former, but Hawaii is paced like SMiLE, with brief instrumentals and song fragments framing the full-fledged songs. Each is carefully arranged and recorded, offering an inviting tapestry of strings, guitars, keyboards, brass, and percussion

Head High Llama Sean O'Hagan recently mused on his working methods and storied career in a podcast. For someone entering his fourth decade of making underground music, the singer found real-life pressures had forced him to put his main band on the back burner. The interview reveals that his natural talent as an arranger allowed him to keep working in music in some capacity, but those long stretches between High Llamas albums aren't going to be getting shorter any time soon

The High Llamas' leader Sean O'Hagan (guitar/keyboards) was also a member from 1993 to 1994 and continued appearing on later records for occasional guest appearances. Although Stereolab found success in the underground music scene and were influential enough to spark a renewed interest in older analogue instruments, they never had a significant commercial impact. The High Llamas are an Anglo-Irish avant-pop band formed in London circa 1991.

This is an unexpectedly pleasant recording, the first tentative steps toward what would later become the magnificent glory of the High Llamas. You could pretty much consider this their first CD, since Sean O'Hagan (the writer/arranger) is accompanied by musicians that all continued onto Santa Barbara, the first "official" High Llamas release. The song "Perry Como" is both catchy and amusing, and "Doggie" rocks out nicely.

Hawaii is the third studio album by the Anglo-Irish avant-pop band the High Llamas, released on 25 March 1996 on the band's Alpaca Park label. The arrangements of Hawaii incorporate more electronic sounds than its predecessor Gideon Gaye (1994), while its lyrics loosely address themes of nomadism, nostalgia, film and musical theatre, and the effects of colonialism. The record peaked at 62 on the UK Albums Chart for a one-week stay
