Allah-Las: Calico Review LP
Limited vinyl LP pressing. 2016 release. On Calico Review, Allah-Las weave their dreamy version of west coast psychedelia with advanced songwriting and exquisite production detail.
The California quartet's third album, Calico Review, focuses on both the outer trappings of their home and surroundings, and the through line of darkness that suffuses life in L.A. county. Bearing the mark of four students becoming the teachers and sharing the sentiments of the town they call home, there's a lot to learn from Allah-Las.
The band formed in 2008 while three of the members were working at Amoeba Music in L.A. The Allah-Las released their debut seven inch single in 2011.
