Allah-Las met while working at the biggest of all the L.A. Record stores, but they became a band in an even more rare and special space—a California basement, dug out somewhere between the mountains and the beach. They began gigging shortly after their conception in and around Los Angeles in the later part of 2008. It wasn’t until three years later that they would find the proper environment to record their first single “Long Journey” which now bookends their self-titled release. These were the kind of songs that bounced between London and Los Angeles, the kind of thing that could have come from Mick Jagger or Arthur Lee or both at once, with crystalline guitar and slow-mo drums that recalled the way the waves take big bites of the beach at night. This was mystery music from the strange and ancient-modern California fringe, more Night Tide than Easy Rider. Allah-Las were a reflection of a reflection, an echo of an echo, a band that was psychedelic not because of reverb or shredding through pedals but for the simple way their songs seem to extend to infinity.

Prince Rama

The unpredictable live shows of Brooklyn-based Prince Rama (sisters Taraka and Nimai Larson) incorporate elements of psychedelic ceremony, performance art and dance-floor initiation rite.

Gothic Press

Los Angeles’ Gothic Tropic introduces some hard edges to the playful world of psych-pop. They find inspiration from high energy Afro-Cuban beats, and exuberant guitars. The brainchild of Cecilia Della Peruti, Gothic Tropic keeps the vibe playful, but measured and dark with a unique lead guitar and vocal style that recalls catchy elements of pre-punk 70s acts such as Television, and Can.
