“Cramming as much guts and passion as possible into three and a half minutes or less - while burning it’s own path, with brooding, lonesome songs, tightly restrained surf inflected musings on girls and freedom”—The New Yorker
“Allah-Las is a bona fide Los Angeles rock band...creating down-to-earth tracks that sound as though they emerged from a sultry garage in Southern California.” —Interview Magazine
“Los Angeles garage-rock gurus Allah-Las tap into an alternate reality where the world is but a California dream.”—SPIN
“slow-rolling and melancholic.” —Consequence of Sound
“[Allah-Las has] turned the so-cal attitude into their own personal projection of freedom, girls, and glory days spent by the shore.” —Flaunt
Artist to Watch in 2017 —Baeble
Allah-Las are set to release the new track, “Hereafter,” and an alternate take of the single “Autumn Dawn” on February 17. The alternate version of “Autumn Dawn” is a demo recording from the band’s frequent collaborator Kyle Mullarky’s home studio in Topanga Canyon. The instrumental, Mellotron heavy B-side “Hereafter” was recorded during Calico Review sessions and has never been released. Listen/share HERE. Limited edition wooden 45rpm adaptors bearing the band’s logo are available with purchase of the 7” while supplies last—includes digital download code. See HERE for more information.
Following their international fall tour, the band embarks on a 20+ city North American Tour this spring in support of their latest, critically acclaimed album, Calico Review (out now on Mexican Summer). In addition to Coachella, the band will be playing in New York, Boston, Chicago, Atlanta and more with support from The Babe Rainbow. See below for a full tour itinerary.
Calico Review was recorded in Los Angeles’ historic Valentine Recording Studio. For the album, Allah-Las experiment with new instrumentation adding violin, harpsichord and Mellotron to their sound. The twelve tracks on Calico Review demonstrate how the group has pivoted from focusing on specific influences to crafting songs that reflect their own feelings of freedom, grit and melancholy. The result showcases their evolution as songwriters and arrangers.
Allah-Las is composed of Pedrum Siadatian (vocals/lead guitar), Miles Michaud (vocals/rhythm guitar), Matthew Correia (vocals/drum), and Spencer Dunham (vocals/bass). The band was formed in 2008 while three of the members were working at the legendary Amoeba Music record store. “We were all music fans before we were musicians,” says Correia. “We’ve spent a lot of time listening to music, and understanding what works for us and what doesn’t.” Their 2011 self-titled debut was nominated for independent album of the year by the A2IM Libbys.
In 2014, their sophomore LP Worship The Sun received critical acclaim from The Los Angeles Times who said the album “…lets the band’s trippy vintage rock absorb all sorts of new Southern California influences. Latin drumming, L.A.’s midcentury avant-garde beach culture and Laurel Canyon harmonies.” On the road the band, has built a dedicated following with extensive, sold-out tours and high profile festival dates throughout North, Central, and South America, Europe, South Africa, Russia, Mexico and Israel.
