A musical friend told me to check out this band named Allah-Las , especifically the song Catamaran. The song is very 40's California rock with very nice harmonies and bridges.
The band describes their music as "Old, weird Los Angeles: strains of true surfing music, American harmonies, sunset strip backbeat, desert ramble filtered through goldstar sessioneers; That pre-fuzz pedal ‘electrified folk’ music and pop groups hitting that California sound with the tambourine on just the right beat."
The more I got into their self-titled album, "Allah-Las", I realized this band is actually pretty good. Not only do they have tracks with vocals, but also instrumental tracks that paints a picture of driving through the desert.
