Editorial Reviews

Allah Las met while working at the biggest of all the L.A. Record stores, but they became a band in an even more rare and special space--a California basement, dug out somewhere between the mountains and the beach. They began gigging shortly after their conception in and around Los Angeles in the later part of 2008. It wasn't until three years later that they would find the proper environment to record their first single ''Long Journey'' which now bookends their self-titled release. These were the kind of songs that bounced between London and Los Angeles, the kind of thing that could have come from Mick Jagger or Arthur Lee or both at once, with crystalline guitar and slow-mo drums that recalled the way the waves take big bites of the beach at night. This was mystery music from the strange and ancient-modern California fringe, more Night Tide than Easy Rider. Allah Las were a reflection of a reflection, an echo of an echo, a band that was psychedelic not because of reverb or shredding through pedals but for the simple way their songs seem to extend to infinity.

Mod with a Southern California surf twist. My boyfriend used to hold his surfboard while driving on his Vespa to the beach. That's what this band has captured.

The cover art says it all. Picture yourself walking the beach and finding the perfect shell and then hold it up to your ear and dream of another time - you will hear Allah-Las coming from the shell. They are an audio burst from a time capsule, perfectly melding the garage/surf sound from the 60's. However, these guys aren't just covering songs from the past they are actually very good song composers and players (vocals are a variety and fit the music well). This record is not only a pleasant first listen but the grooves will pull you in with each play. This is an absolute top down and tunes up cruising kind of album.

Yes...in that sweet summer sunshine...

side note - I bought the LP and while the sound is decent (I'm sure it was more intentional to have a vintage sound) it does not bring to mind orignial master recording quality.

Another Nick Waterhouse "involved musical journey" that everyone should be on. One could say that we are witnessing "greatness", if only more attention would come his way.

Although there are no recording notes on any of his lps I own, it's obvious he records in mono and tries to convey a sound that was prevalent in a time long gone.

If you happen to listen to a very revealing system, you will have heard his essence. You can count yourself among the too few, who have come under his spell!

Not sure why I haven't heard of this band before. Great roots from the 1960s and updated (influences from the Kings, Zombies and many others). Great production. It's the perfect cruising and background music. Foot-tapping and great feel-good music. I've played it nonstop for 10 days now and can't get it out of my head. Love, love, love this band.

Surf Rock, Garage sound. Listening to this album is like being chillin' in a hammock in the caribbean, pure pleasure. Allah Las debut album is just as exquisite as that description. The melody, the sounds, the lyrics, the feel, the ambient, the experience. A must have!

You must own this on LP in order to get up and stand up at the appropriate interlude -you'll adjust to this quickly, and efficiently flip the album over for further enjoyment. It will be worth your trip time and time again. It's a Ghost-town, hauntingly refreshing. Take some friends along for a spin. Listen you can hear them laughing...

Beautiful surf inflected sixties revisionists in the vein of Brian Jonestown Massacre and Black Angels. I really loved the record. There are moments on here that will remind you of The Pastels and The La's. Wonderful summer record.
