Today I Like: Allah-Las, “Busman’s Holiday”

The Allah-Las have released their first full album (Allah-Las, Innovative Leisure Records).  It’s a record that masterfully captures that certain feeling of the sixties associated with the “California sound” and the influence that sound had on rock music in America and England.  There’s no hint of an external decision to apply this music to their act; they just scooped up the sound poured it into themselves.

Here are the remaining tour dates for Allah-Las and Nick Waterhouse:
