“The Allah-Las sound like the Old, Weird Los Angeles: Strains of true surfing music, American harmonies, Sunset Strip backbeat, desert ramble filtered through Goldstar Sessioneers…like bungalows in canyons; hidden deco stairsteps peeking from leafy hillsides; kustom kars and dovetails and chicks in OP shorts with long, long hair, like a Dennis Hopper photo come to life. You look at their well worn Fender guitars, their real surfer tans, their dusty suede boots – and you see it’s a sound natural to them. This is ’60s pop psych / surf rock at it’s best.” – by Nick Waterhouse for Rough Trade // Rough Trade NYC, 64 North 9th St. Williamsburg.
