After a solo run out under the name Paint, Pedrum Siadatian returns to the womb that bore him, i.e. Allah-Lahs. LAHS is the band’s fourth album. There’s a palpable togetherness about this album, but their sun-bleached melodies and soft psychedelia remain at their core. On Mexican Summer.

LAHS by Allah-Las

'Allah la!' is how my Scouse girlfriend greets me... occasionally. First bit of wordplay out of the way, let's press on. There's a particular strain (zing) of stoner-y (now d'you geddit?) American rock groups that pastiches the great 60s bands like the Byrds, the Zombies, and Love. Allah-Las remain right at the forefront of these groups. If you own an oil lamp projector, you will like them. Their new album 'LAHS' is all sun-kissed melodies, chilled rhythms, and just viiiiibes, man. 

This album is a little boring to be honest. We've heard it all before. Don't get my wrong, I love a few of the songs like 'Prazer Em Te Conhercer' with its cute slide guitar intro and Spanish language vocals. I really like 'Polar Onion' which has this nice sweetly apocalyptic R.E.M. kinda thing going on with wistfully melancholic vocals and a guitar rhythm that circles round the whole of the song. It just feels another psych rock record by a psych rock band that could come up with something 50% better. Maybe I'm being harsh, but 'Star' actually begins with the lyrics 'You can laugh, you can cry, you can ask the reason why'. Dudes?! C'mon. 

The moments where they being to sound like a proper band rather than an advertising executive's idea of 60s music are the best on the album, obviously. This is why I lament this album so much. I can hear an interesting sensibility at play here, and guys, you don't have to use the same scales and guitar tones as those 60s dudes! I believe in you.
