The Sonic Tapestries of The Alpacas

This podcast and video have been a long time in the making. This was filmed as Radio Waterloo was leaving the 108 King Street Studio Location. Because of that the audio is a bit glitchy in the podcast but as you can tell in the video above the harmonies provided by the Alpacas were unwavering.

Check out this amazing band in the video above and podcast below.
