Allah-Las started—on Nick Waterhouse’s highly regarded PRES label, actually—as a moody and even menacing Shutdown ’66-style garage band, but across six years and three full-lengths they’ve developed a sophisticated and even scholarly sensibility that goes beyond unheralded ‘60s psych and rock to find inspiration and information in art, design, literature and more. Call it a crash-course in an off-center kind of American cultural history, with their globally beloved Reverberation Radio station as in introductory seminar. And that makes their live shows a display of practical application, where visionaries from ’66, ’56, ’76, ’96 and more all might recognize kindred spirits taking their sound and (more importantly) their philosophy into the future.
