on the road with: allah-las

29.1.2019

 

 

Three out of four Allah-Las band members were working at Amoeba Music when they first met. It's little wonder their knowledge of vintage tracks is so extensive. You can hear it in their art too. Three albums in, and their sound is still ever wet, drenched in grains of influence and salty flavour. Only one thing's been a constant, and that's their location. The hulking avenues that swivel beneath L.A.'s vibrating sun have been a harbouring cot for the band's creativity. You can hear the city in every note. Join the boys on a car ride to nowhere, as they meddle with the tape deck.
