Allah-Las ‎– LAHS

$35.00 Inc. GST

“Lahs,” the fourth studio album by the Los Angeles-based band Allah-Las, was released on October 11, 2019. This album marks a distinct evolution in the band’s sound, showcasing a more mature, explorative, and globally influenced direction compared to their previous works, which were deeply rooted in the Californian ’60s surf rock and garage rock traditions.

The band members — Matthew Correia (percussion), Spencer Dunham (bass), Miles Michaud (vocals, guitar), and Pedrum Siadatian (lead guitar) — infused “Lahs” with a variety of international influences, reflecting their extensive touring experiences and a broadening musical palette. The album’s title itself, a play on the band’s name, hints at this shift towards a more diverse and worldly sound.

Musically, “Lahs” drifts away slightly from the band’s characteristic jangly, surf-inspired sound, moving towards a more laid-back, psychedelic pop. The tracks are laced with a mix of introspective lyrics, mellow melodies, and a richer, more varied instrumentation that includes elements of folk and a subtle nod to Middle Eastern sounds. Songs like “In the Air,” “Prazer Em Te Conhecer,” and “Roco Ono” stand out, showcasing the band’s ability to blend their signature style with new, unexpected influences.

The production of “Lahs” adheres to the band’s preference for a vintage, analog feel, but with a cleaner, more polished approach compared to their earlier, more lo-fi recordings. This gives the album a timeless quality, bridging past and present musical sensibilities.
