The Desert Sessions Volume 9 & 10

Desert Sessions
Josh Homme and friends (PJ Harvey included) convene in the desert

I don't know what it is about me and music, but every time I get into a band I have to go out and buy the whole back catalogue. It ends up costing me a lot of money if I go for somebody like Queen! I started getting into Queens of the Stone Age a few years ago, and then gradually started finding out about all the other projects Josh Homme had been involved in, like the Eagles of Death Metal and The Desert Sessions. On this album it sounds like they just went into the studio and recorded these songs in one take. PJ Harvey sings on this record, and her voice goes really well with this type of music. She works well with rawer, edgier material like this.
