WATCH — Allah La’s “Famous Phone Figure” + Tour Dates

June 29th, 2016


“On September 9th, Allah-Las will return with a new album called Calico Review. The 12-track collection marks their third full-length overall following 2014’s Worship the Sun. The LP was recorded in the band’s hometown of Los Angeles at the notable Valentine Recording Studio, which had previously been closed since the late ’70s. As a press release notes, during their sessions, the garage rockers used “historic recording equipment including a 1964 Universal Audio 610 soundboard, the same board on which The Beach Boys recorded Pet Sounds.” In addition, they incorporated new instrumentation into their sound, adding such instruments as viola, harpsichord, Mellotron and theremin. Our first taste of Calico Review comes in the form of “Famous Phone Figure”. Slow-rolling and melancholic, slow-rolling, the lead single makes use of faint percussion and strings. According to a statement, it “revolves around a character sketch of an unknowable woman.” — via Consequence of Sound
