Allah-Las – Don’t You Forget It

  • September 12, 2012

Los Angeles quartet Allah-Las met while working at Amoeba Records and have been steadily gaining buzz since their inaugural 45 release on guitarist/singer/producer Nick Waterhouse’s label Pre Records in 2008. With their newest LP Don’t You Forget It the Allah-Las expertly take the sounds of the past – 1960’s surf-rock vibes and vintage garage rock and fuzz-folk sounds – and make them fresh again. What makes the Allah-Las standout from many retro-inspired bands is their authentic recreation of the times and mastery of their tools, creating astoundingly engaging music. A few standouts include the cover of sixties SC band The Roots’ “Long Journey,” “Catamaran,” “Tell Me (What’s On Your Mind)” and “Don’t You Forget It” – be sure to check them out. – Written by JFelton
