Allah-Las will release their new studio album Zuma 85 on October 13th through their own label, Calico Discos, in partnership with Innovative Leisure, which also released their break through records Allah-Las (2012) and Worship The Sun (2014). The album was recorded at the picturesque Panoramic House recording in Stinson Beach with co-producer Jeremy Harris (White Fence, Devendra Banhart).
For the last 15 years, Allah-Las have alchemically melded surf rock washes with folk rock jangle and rock, building up their lauded music podcast, Reverberation Radio, and record label, Calico Discos, in the process. But a lot has changed since Matthew Correia (drums/vocals), Spencer Dunham (bass, guitar, vocals), Miles Michaud (guitar, organ, vocals), and Pedrum Siadatian (guitar, synth, vocals) first bonded over psych rock vinyl in the back room at Amoeba Records in the late aughts. Zuma 85 finds the quartet facing a new world with a wealth of new sounds, drawing from an eclectic mix of progressive rock, prog, kosmische, and Eno-esque art rock, scuzzy Royal Trux riffs, and detouring into tones and textures that call to mind ‘90s and 2000s pop.
