7/10 Robin Staff review, 01 November 2017

Clint once applauded the Allah-Las for working hard. He was, of course, employing his beloved sarcasm, in so far as this band are sun-kissed and palm-tree adjacent and deal with no problems greater than a gentle breeze or a summer romance. That was what ‘Calico’ sounded like, anyway, and this follow-up EP suggests the same sweet deals and soft emotions. It’s just covers, none too fancy, and homages the melodic rawk of old they hold so dear.

First up is George Harrison’s “Fish On the Sand”, here made hazy and jangly in the band’s actually appropriately sandy aesthetic. You can tell, inherent in the song’s DNA, that “Hard On Love” is a Television tune -- with that keynote riff at its intro, would be impossible to divide them out of the song, but Allah-Las do a nice job of making it sound a little more related to their realm of chill.

There’s a cover of Kathy Heideman’s “The Earth Won’t Hold Me” played with phase-jumping guitars and old-skool bass rollickings, too. Their take on Further’s “J.O. Eleven” is fine and dandy too -- it’s reasonable to correlate fans of these rock classics to potential lovers of Allah-Las nostalgic holidaying, so I can’t see anything going wrong here.
