Los Angeles is still a mecca for great bands. These days though you just have to search them out a little more. I’d like to introduce you to the band All Souls, a melodic, guitar-heavy rock band that is absolutely fantastic. All Souls finally formed in 2015 after many years of trying to get together. The band is made up of Erik Trammell (Black Elk, Brothers Collateral), Tony Tornay (Fatso Jetson), Antonio Aguilar and Meg Castellanos (Totimoshi, Alma Sangre). Their debut album was recently released via Sunyata Records (which is owned by Barrett Martin of Screaming Trees, Mad Season and Walking Papers) and it’s stellar. There are hooks galore and constant grooves that don’t get tired or boring throughout the entire album. There is a bit of a desert/stoner vibe to the sound of the band that allows a bit of “space” to sway through the listening experience. After listening to the entire album, you not only want more but you’ll feel compelled to listen to All Souls again.
