A Long Journey: Allah-Las

Los Angeles band http://uristocrat.com/2010/08/power-rankings-featuring-kanye-west-madden-11/ released their self-titled debut album in September, after four years of meticulously crafting their sound. Sourcing recording equipment from the 1950s and 60s gave the band an infectiously authentic, reverb-heavy garage sound, evoking the spirit of Cali—the surf and the sun—of decades past. Here, Life + Times catches up with the band on their very first East Coast tour, at a recent gig at Union Pool in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
