SONG FOR TODAY: Allah-Las - Tell Me (What's On Your Mind?)

Heard this lot on Shell Zenner's Amazing Radio show a while ago, but couldn't find this band due to the fact that I didn't know how to spell their name. I've spent the last few days listening to the self titled debut album from the Allah-Las and from it here is the brilliant recent single 'Tell Me (What's On Your Mind?)'. The Guardian recently said:  "On their self-titled debut album, LA four-piece Allah-Las offer a compact precis of UK and US 60s rock styles, from surf to garage, beat boom rock to jangle-pop. There's even a bit of bossa nova in there. It's like a compilation featuring the Byrds, Love, the Rolling Stones, the Animals and Burt Bacharach, which you'll doubtless agree would be a fairly strong collection, and probably why Allah-Las has been getting such ecstatic reviews from retro British rock monthlies used to lionising the original exponents of these forms – as well as America's hipper forums..."

The self-titled debut album was released on 19 November by Innovative Leisure.
