Still Life with Llamas
Laconia Corporation's most recent release, Still Life With Llamas is a 46 minute journey through the minds of an eclectic song-writing duo bringing some depth and meaning to the 4-minute musical form-factor. With influences from Pete Townsend, to Billy Joel, to The Replacements, to The Smiths, Laconia Corporation is a band that came of age in the 80's and 90's, yet maintains a decidedly modern sensibility. Like AC/DC? So do we, but we don't sound like them. Laconia Corporation is a pop band with the occasional rock edge. From the melodic-pop title track, to the campy crooner-style My Blue Car, to the Lou Reed inspired A Girl Like That, a diverse mix of pop and rock styles are brought together into a coherent, eminently listenable whole. Vocally rich and sometimes haunting, Laconia Corporation makes every lyric and every note count - every word, every sound is there for a reason - no throwaways allowed. So, take a journey through the imagery and emotion of Still Life With Llamas. Revel in the fantasy of My Blue Car. Try living with A Girl Like That. See if you can answer The Question. Let Laconia Corporation surprise you and make you think for a while.
