Allah-Las – “Don’t You Forget It”
The natty L.A. lads in Allah-Las
premiered a new track today called “Don’t You Forget It,” from their upcoming self-titled debut full-length, due from Innovative Leisure Sept. 18. Dig the way the drums come in halfway through and make the bonfire jam into a dance party. They’re on tour this fall with Nick Waterhouse
, whose own Time’s All Gone
came out earlier this year, and both will play FYF Sept. 1-2.
Dum Dum Girls – “Lord Knows”
I’m among those who will pause to listen any time San Diego’s Dum Dum Girls
release music. So it’s with great joy that I hear “Lord Knows,” a knockout, mid-tempo ballad that shows lead singer Dee Dee’s growth as a songwriter over the bands couple of albums. The song will appear on the End of Daze
EP, due in the fall.
The Deadly Syndrome – “Whatever Comes Our Way”
This first taste from Los Angeles’ The Deadly Syndrome
’s third album, the self-released All in Time
, due Aug. 7, sounds very L.A. — get up, go to work, traffic, in bed by 10. The song has a way of humanizing an increasingly inhuman existence. Maybe that’s just what I’m drawing from it, but for relatively unassuming indie rock, it’s pretty affecting.
