Los Angeles quartet Allah-Las came up in the same fertile West Coast scene that spawned psych-rock juggernauts like Thee Oh Sees and Ty Segall, but where those acts incorporate a double-drummer rhythm section or a terrifying baby mask to stoke the flames of showgoers, Allah-Las seem more than content to entrance audiences with deep, hypnotic grooves on their latest Mexican Summer-issued album, Lahs. Across its 13 tracks, the band shares songwriting and vocal duties; “Prazer Em Te Conhecer” finds drummer Matthew Correia crooning in Portuguese over a catchy slide guitar hook, while guitarist Pedrum Saidatian takes the lead on the sun-soaked psych-pop single, “In the Air.” You won’t find the same wild exuberance that defines the live shows of those aforementioned peers, but if you’re looking for a brief respite from all the cold and rain, Allah-Las might be just the warmth you seek.
