“No song should last much more than two minutes” was the initial idea for Allensworth’s new album. The southern California soul quintet is due to release “Albumsworth” the 25th early 2019. The whole record was recorded in 3 late nights sessions at Lovestreet Studios on the Gold Coast. The two-minute rule stood true for a few tracks but others had to evolve into extended versions because they were just too good to cut short.
