Various - A Rekords Rekords Record
This is a fine and very nice 10” sampler from Rekords Rekords released on Record Store Day 2011, and unlike several other RSD releases this is quite easy to get your hands on (and usually also quite cheap).
The four songs on this circle around Queens Of The Stone Age and the projects of some of its members. It opens with Alain Johannes’ (guitarist on several of Hommes’ projects) “Endless Eyes” from his great solo album, Spark - which I can highly recommend. The second track is “Nenada” from Josh Hommes’ Desert Sessions project, where he takes a bunch of musicians for a jam session in his desert studio. Next up is QOTSA’s “Regular John” from their self-titled debut album. Finally we have Mini Mansions’ (project of QOTSA bassist Michael Shuman) ”The Room Outside”, which is the weakest track on this otherwise very solid compilation.
This is recommendable to every Queens Of The Stone Age fan out there and is also a pretty good introduction to some of their related projects. Also it looks pretty good!
