Possibly one of the coolest musicians alive, Garcia is obviously known for being one of the founding members of seminal desert rock band Kyuss, along with Brant Bjork and Josh Homme. This track is from his latest solo album John Garcia and the Band of Gold which came out this month.
I think this is an awesome song, it has a seriously swaggering rhythm, has all the desert rock trademarks in the right place, with a nice bluesy feel to boot. It sounds to me like a distant cousin of Queens of the Stone Age, which makes sense when you consider the common ancestry. (I know, I’m getting a bit Darwinian now). Anyway, just enjoy. And check out the album, it’s pretty great.
