Given that albums normally come out on a friday, perhaps this is coming out on August 25th?

Looking forward to it, I thought the last one was very strong!

Teaser site up. Maybe too much traffic at the moment as it doesn't seem to be loading properly like it was 20 minutes ago. Here's a pic of what it looks like when fully functional:

mark ronson produced this?!?!?! holy shit

ToddBonzalez (BradNelson), Wednesday, 14 June 2017 16:23 (one week ago) Permalink

I am the tiniest bit sad that it was not also produced by Justin Meldal-Johnsen, but you can only ask so much of a guy.

fingers crossed for the next qotsa record

ToddBonzalez (BradNelson), Wednesday, 14 June 2017 16:40 (one week ago) Permalink

though the news of ronson producing made me briefly envision an album full of "smooth sailing"s

clip sounds promising. homme's no grohl in the acting department.

"my heart's a dingaling/a puppet on a string/c'est la vie"

i mean listen no one's coming to qotsa for lyrics but still

the last minute is kinda cool

Universal LULU Nation (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Thursday, 15 June 2017 16:24 (one week ago) Permalink

guess it's not quite an album of "smooth sailing"s

ToddBonzalez (BradNelson), Thursday, 15 June 2017 16:26 (one week ago) Permalink

I keep thinking of "mambo no. 5" for some reason

Sounds like Era Vulgaris texturally, but really flat...sure the album will rule though

Unchanging Window (Ross), Saturday, 17 June 2017 21:07 (one week ago) Permalink

It took a while, but I'm liking it a lot now.

how's life, Saturday, 17 June 2017 21:11 (one week ago) Permalink

yeah, I am coming around to this after some hesitation. sounds like the guitars spend a lot of time at a weird spot in the wah pedal. can definitely work on an album that rules.

cheesy heart beat thing is the kind of thing they pull off really well

Gaspard de la Nuit: III. ScarJost (Sufjan Grafton), Saturday, 17 June 2017 21:16 (one week ago) Permalink

Yeah, that sounds cool despite it being a cliche.

At first I thought that the song really would have benefitted from some horns, but the more I listened the guitars do a pretty good job of switching back and forth between a more ZZ Top-ish bluesy romp and emulating a super-tight gritty sax section. Feel like that's what they were going for with the parked wah sound.

how's life, Saturday, 17 June 2017 21:48 (one week ago) Permalink

Took a bunch of listens for me but I'm into it. Has that QOTSA swagger that's been absent for a while.

Still think "Elephant" by Tame Impala is PEAK this kind of thing.

I can't help but think there are a ton of producers who would've been a better fit for this sort of thing than Ronson.

Looks like I nailed the release date back in April ;-)

Unchanging Window (Ross), Sunday, 18 June 2017 05:56 (six days ago) Permalink

I just got around to Dave Catching's solo album that came out last month and it's really impressive. The conceit being that each of the songs is a different band, Desert Session-ish. Plenty of old Queens dudes like Lanegan, Gene Troutman, Joey Castillo.

how's life, Wednesday, 21 June 2017 21:26 (three days ago) Permalink

That sounds great!

I love the desert sessions w PJ

Unchanging Window (Ross), Wednesday, 21 June 2017 21:42 (three days ago) Permalink

No PJ this time i think, but Johnette Napolitano? Also women who I don't know: Serrina Simms (from one of Troy Van Leeuwen's aside projects - he's also in the mix here) and Liela Moss.

Here's the full list of personnel. Guess this has been in the can for a few years!
