What would you do if you really loved music and wanted to make money by just listening to music all day? And you didn’t want to mess with the corporate-ness that is the music business? You’d work in a record store, at least, if you could find one that’s still open, that is. That way, you could spend your days working through the racks, expanding your musical intelligence and library, while you got paid to be there.
That’s exactly what Matthew Correia, Miles Michaud, Pedrum Siadatian, and Spencer Dunham did – and where they met. They were working in the record store “Amoeba” in downtown LA, in the mid-to-late 2000s. They became friends, started to hang, then their hang seshes became jam seshes, and a band was born!
A Sunny Day in California
When you’re listening to the music these four men make, you should be transported to a beach in California in the ’60s. Their music is psychedelic, sunny, and harmonic. Or, at least, their first two albums were. Their third album was still California-esque, but it’s more what you’d listen to while you ride with the top down along California’s Pacific Coast Highway. Put the windows down and turn the volume way up!
A Global Group
Allah-Las already has a global sound, from the sheer number of records they’ve listened to, and the way that’s influenced their music. Their global relevance was furthered by their dedication to playing their music all around the world. The band stepped up the game on their last album, bringing in more influences and images than just the California coast. It has a more Grateful Dead type sound to it, with some soul music sprinkled in for good measure.
