Allah-Las is a Los Angeles-based band taking full advantage of the knowledge that most people love the beach and would rather be there right about now. Playing up their sundrenched ‘60s vibe to maximum effect, tonally the band sounds like some sand might have gotten into the 8-track recorder, giving them a slightly fuzzy sound that really plays up their warm, suntan lotion-infused garage rock aesthetic. It’s lazy, but not slow. It’s upbeat, but relaxed. This music was clearly not created in winter, but rather embraces creativity the same way one sheds their clothes as the days get warmer.
