Editorial Reviews

Allah-Las' second album, Worship The Sun, expands on the sound established by their maiden effort, honing their fusion of West Coast garage rock and roll, Latin percussion and electric folk. As richly textured and timeless as a Southern California beach break, the songs are evocative of Los Angeles storied past. Beatniks, artists, surfers, nomads. Remnants of a bygone Sunset Strip. Golden tans and cosmic sunsets. One can feel the warmth of the sun, but the band deftly avoids the kitsch so often indulged by lovers of these things.

4.0 out of 5 stars Back with more "retro-rock": why change a winning formula? September 16, 2014
Format:Audio CD
A couple of years ago, a California foursome called the Allah-Las arose out of nowhere with a delicious ‘retro’ sounds straight from the 1960s, as if the (early) Byrds were still around these days. They released a promising self-titled debut album in 2012, and almost to the day 2 years later now comes the band’s anticipated second studio album.

“Worship The Sun” (14 tracks; 40 min.) continues in the same vein of the debut album, with the same ‘simple’ sounds which are in fact a lot more complex/layered than you think. The album opens with the short “De Vida Voz” and we are off on a rollicking good time. “Had It All” is one of my favorites on here, providing good vibes all around. The production sounds a bit more lush/richer than it was on the debut album, and that only adds to the enjoyment of course. The songs are short, make their musical point, and move on. Not a second is wasted, and nothing lingers on for the sake of just lingering. Other favorites on here for me include first single “501-415”, less than 2 minutes of heavenly bliss, “Nothing to Hide” (at 3’40” the longest song on here), and then deep into the album the title track, and the closer “Every Girl”, but I feel there are no weak tracks on here. Haters might say “it sounds just like the first album” but to that I respond: “why mess with a winning formula?”. Bottom line: this is a great album that is sure to make my “best of the year” albums list come December.

I haven’t had a chance yet to see these guys live. I can only hope they will come to the Midwest somewhere close to Cincinnati so that I can experience these retro-sounds in a concert setting. Meanwhile “Worship the Sun” is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

4.0 out of 5 stars brilliant jangling guitars September 16, 2014
Format:Audio CD
Here on their second album, we find the Allah Las still awash in the Lysergic Ocean, though perhaps deep into the more reflective part of their trip ... beaming with crystal clarity, brilliant jangling guitars, melodic melodies, sustained harmonies, and laden with with mysterious lyrics. Again, it’s hard to believe that this release wasn’t recorded in the mid 60’s, going head to head with AM Radio singles like The Beach Boys “Good Vibrations.”

While the songs still ease their way into your subconscious, on [i]Worship the Sun,[/i] the boys have added a bit more texture, and in doing so, have revealed a bit more of their personal side, more introspective, and with a bit more soul ... allowing for an almost tangible radiance from the sun, as mild California Trade Winds gently cover the beaches and canyons like warm blankets. Yes, their profound coolness is still intact, as is a spirituality for the land, the sky, the beaches, and a bygone American dream that shaped many of my generation. With the addition of several instrumentals, the album takes on a more cinematic feel, creating a larger atmosphere in which the band can tease out new concepts without a feeling of confinement, or that boundaries are being pushed.

[i]Worship the Sun[/i] is plush and comforting without being tentative, while still offering up a number surprises, along with several songs that could be outright singles, in [i]Rubber Soul[/i] fashion. Be selfish on the first couple of listens, find yourself a comfortable spot, dim the lights, and lay waste to the outside world.
