Album Review: Our Top 5 Songs on ‘Villains’ by Queens Of The Stone Age

posted by Oscar September 1, 2017

Queens Of The Stone Age have released their latest album, Villains, and once again they’ve proven they’re a force to be reckoned with. The 9 tracks on the band’s seventh studio release are all the proof you need that Rocky & Roll is alive and well, with leader Josh Homme and crew on the front lines making sure to keep it that way.

One of the most anticipated albums of the year for me, the record itself definitely doesn’t disappoint. Villains packs a lot of punch with brilliant guitar work and dark lyrical and production themes throughout. Working with Mark Ronson, one of the biggest producers of his generation, led to a collection of tracks that are all so damn kickass and flow seamlessly from one to the next, that if the band decided to use their upcoming headlining appearance at Riot Fest to play Villains all the way through, those of us in attendance would not see a problem with it.

Check out our Top 5 tracks from this album below. Continue Reading

posted by Oscar August 16, 2017

Queens Of The Stone Age have released their new music video for their sexy, danceable lead track “The Way You Used To Do.” The visual was conceived by QOTSA leader Joshua Homme and it was directed by Jonas Akerlund and produced by Serial Pictures. The video starts off in black and white as the band is jamming together in a small room, until Homme bursts through to another side where things come into color, wardrobe changes liven things up, and the frontman even delivers a stupendous dancing performance.

QOTSA’s seventh album, Villains, arrives August 25th on Matador Records. The album is available now for pre-order at http://smarturl.it/Villains.

Video: Queens Of The Stone Age – “Blurred Lines” (Live Lounge) [Robin Thicke Cover]

posted by Oscar June 12, 2013

There are two things that are fact. Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” is awesome and incredibly catchy, and QOTSA kicks ass (number 1 album, son!). A few days ago, Josh Homme and the rest of the guys from Queens Of The Songs Age played a live cover of Thicke’s hit single on BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge with Sara Cox. The “unplugged” version also included a little “rap” verse in the middle to bring their cover full circle.
