White Orange makes #6 of the year!
This EP sounds like someone compressed the hypnotic heaviness of the first Queens Of The Stone Age record into three epic, psychedelic, ‘90s-esque rock and roll tracks. The connection between the two bands is a reality, too—as their brother band with whom they share a singer, guitarist and drummer, Black Pussy, spent a great deal of this year touring with ex-Kyuss heroes Vista Chino AND had a record produced by Brant Bjork. Black Pussy’s success has (understandably) put White Orange on the backburner for a bit, but this record hasn’t left my stereo since I got it. Additionally, the song “…And I Leave The Circus” has some seriously bad-ass kazoo-playing. What more could you want?
