Miles from the prog metal and desert rock I’ve been listening to lately but amazing stuff.


Just watched the first video and it's fantastic. Great tune and visuals. The first 10 seconds are my favourite part. . At first I was wondering what the hell was going on, and then, yeah, it all makes sense.

What is desert rock?

Desert rock is a style typified by Queens of the Stone Age and Kyuss, named after concerts out in the Californian desert. It usually has a loose, clunky feel.

Vance Joy is really blowing up here in Australia, the fourth song I linked is his biggest followed by the first.



Ha! I took the reference literally and thought of Giant Sand, a band from Arizona.
Come to think of it, the sound can in a way be compared to Vance Joy

Yes, Giant Sand are great. One of the few country like band I can stomach. Obviously because of the guitar work popping up once in a while. And the melodies... Anyway, was listening to Gun Club, The Ocean Party, The Men and Volfgang Voigt today.

I think it's the sign of a clean rider and a real sportsman to be attracted to the bigger challenge over the ultimate result. Good luck with the Giro/Tour double, Chris Froome. -Phil Gaimon

Polvo ~ Can I Ride?

Even before they were the math-rocking, conventional-harmony-eschewing, critic-baiting masters of discordance they later became, Polvo could still write a great song. This has to be the band at their most catchy and fun, its their equivalent of, say, "Lee Remick" by the Go-Betweens or "Joyride" by Built to Spill - great songs not truly representative of what became the band's sound.

Ah, the early-to-mid nineties.
I love music from every era, but I still contend that the indie rock scene during those years was sublime. So many great bands suddenly popped up--most of whom never received the fame and money they deserved. But they have provided me with a lifetime of timeless tunes.

Also, at DJ Sprtsh: I had never heard of Gun Club; they sound great. Sort of like Velvet Underground on uppers? I know nothing about music composition, so apologies if that's an unfair comparison.

Excuse me, Greg, for swinging from the gentle weeps of Laura's guitar to some screams, just not sure tomorrow will
do the work.
Hear & watch.

Thank you, sir fly for that musical interlude.

Now let's back to regularly scheduled programming. (I kid)

Regularly scheduled programming requires caring audience... and overlapped essences make the daze.
So, no confusion here, I believe.

Their work reflects theirs history, I'd say.

Hey, I have that Polvo one, double 7". It's been a while since I listened to it though. Also like Exploded Drawing, but don't know much about their other stuff.
Gun Club - the first three albums are in a league of their own. Some can't stomach Jeffrey Lee Pierce's vocals, I think they're great. I also still very much enjoy JLP's solo outing from...87 or so, Wildweed.

Polvo are great, really love them. Cor Crane Secret is a great album essential to the development of that whole scene of math rock, a term that Polvo themselves disavowed, but obviously belong within, in much the same way as people like Bauhaus disavowed the "goth" term back in the early 80s. Before Bob Weston started producing them they had this raw, grungey production but still the skintight, taut musicianship and jazzy syncopation and irreverent song structures. I've been spinning a lot of the "borderline" math rock stuff like Slint, Shellac, Polvo and Rodan of late. And some more overt math rock, like Don Caballero and these guys.

I'm not sure how to define the term "math rock" but there were a couple bands I lurve who fit into the category.
One was Tar, but youtube footage does not exist.
The other is Drive Like Jehu.
They rock like the racetrack on welfare day.

Edited to add that I'm getting carried away.
Drive Like Jehu morphed into the terribly named Hot Snakes, but they are still awesome.
