RIYL: Josh Homme, Billy Gibbons, Les Claypool, Stella Mozgawa, Jake Shears

Label: Matador Records / Vinyl Me, Please

Out of the woodwork, dusty and soiled with cobwebs and mud dauber nests, emerges Desert Sessions. Led by the pale red horse who goes by Josh Homme, the project lasted from 1997-2003 and included artists from all over the rock and roll atlas. Scorched, stoned and sun-kissed riffage in the name of the holy rock, this was the Desert Sessions mantra. And after 16 f-ing years…it has been reborn. HOT DAMN.

The album will feature 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 new comer Libby Grace.

The ‘buy’ link takes you to VMP’s orange vinyl variant limited to 1000 copies, but you currently have to be a member to buy that version. If you’d rather get the straight-from-teet version from Matador Records, grab that HERE. That one comes with a limited sticker sheet while supplies last.  Check out the teaser below.
