Released: 23rd Mar 2015


Far, far more than a Queens Of The Stone Age side project, the third release from the LA trio is a dense and dreamlike foray into luminescent psychedelia, eclectic and ambitious and brimming with off-kilter melody.

Whilst they’ve riffed off The Beatles and Elliott Smith before this time around the vibe is poppier, Brian Wilson’s guest spot reflecting a more upbeat focus in the twitchy hooks and the compulsive choruses, like ‘Hunky Dory’ Bowie or Elton John at his kaleidoscopic best. “The Great Pretenders’ is an absolute wonder” 4.5/5 – contact music, “an emotional, emboldened triumph” 9/10 – nme

james cooper recommends: smooth rock-pop on acid. this is a great album for late night summer parties.
