DESERT SESSIONS

Desert Sessions

Vols. 11 & 12

    In 1997, Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age) and a handful of friends retreated to the desert of Joshua Tree, CA in order to isolate themselves from the distractions and comforts of their everyday lives. What began as a casual writing and recording session amongst friends has since become a project of legend. Spanning twelve volumes over the course of two decades, Desert Sessions has featured some of music’s most cherished icons stepping out of their comfort zones and collaborating with one another to create some of the most exciting music of their careers.

    After nearly sixteen years since its last entry, the longest-running mix tape in existence, Desert Sessions returns with two stunning new volumes in its already storied catalog, Vol. 11 & 12, featuring collaborations from Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top), Les Claypool (Primus), Stella Mozgawa (Warpaint), Jake Shears (Scissor Sisters), Mike Kerr (Royal Blood), Carla Azar (Autolux, Jack White), Matt Sweeney (Chavez), David Catching (Co-founder of Rancho De La Luna studio), comedian Matt Berry (What We Do in the Shadows), Töôrnst Hülpft and newcomer Libby Grace.

    STAFF COMMENTS

    Barry says: It looks pretty mad, I know. Josh Homme collaborates with various standout members of rock / indie / grunge royalty (plus a killer tune with Jake Shears of Scissor Sisters), but believe me, it's very good. Country tinged rock, foot-stomping psychedelic shredding and damn good songwriting make for a really interesting combination of sounds, and in the end, a brilliant LP.

    Delroy Edwards & Dean Blunt

    Desert Sessions

    L.A.'s Delroy Edwards meets London's Dean Blunt for a 19 track desert showdown. All instrumentals and I have to say - it seems Blunt has imparted more of his influence on Edwards than vice versa - with the track seemingly glowing with that radioactive, tape-fried aesthetic that's highlighted much of Hype Williams' and Dean's solo work.

    That isn't a bad thing though, and Delroy's ruff-n-ready hardware abuse still adds plenty of flavour to proceedings, as a selection of analogue and digital sound devices grunt, spit, gurgle and splutter over tense, warbled strings and suspended VHS-pads. The work 'hypnagogic' get's banded around a lot when dealing with Blunt's work, but there's definitely an element of exasperated, hazy abandon that should empathize with anyone in the midst of a benzodiazepine withdrawal. Super limited copies folks so move in quick to cop some.
