Desert Sessions Vol 11 & 12 album coverRecorded at Rancho De La Luna in Joshua Tree – with Joshua Homme as ringmaster to this circus of talented freaks (Les Claypool, Jake Shears, Mike Kerr ect.) – you already know this record rules.

A sneaky beat initiates the Billy Gibbons-led Move Together, which drips with face-meltingly sexual riffs. When Libby Grace Hackford takes the lead on If You Run she could be Homme’s twin sister, and instrumental jam Far East For The Trees is the theme song from your new favourite road movie. Drums throughout are smashed by Carla Azarenka and Stella Mozgawa (also on “room service trays”). Breaking the 16-year drought between sittings, Desert Sessions Vol 11 & 12 once again captures a fission that can only occur when musical heroes collide.

Desert Sessions Vol 11 & 12 is out October 25 via Matador/Remote Control.
