After nearly sixteen years since its last entry, the longest-running mix tape in existence - helmed and founded by qotsa’s josh homme - returns with two stunning new volumes in its legendary legacy.

In 1997, Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age) and a handful of friends retreated to the californian desert to isolate themselves from the distractions and comforts of their everyday lives. What began as a casual writing and recording session amongst friends has since become a project of legend. These new offerings feature collaborations from Billy Gibbons, Les Claypool, Stella Mozgawa, Jake Shears, Mike Kerr and Matt freaking Berry! “homme and friends have cooked up a lysergic brew of dust-blown ballads, thumping punk rock and shimmery psychedelia […] another two worthy chapters in the story, then” 4/5 – mojo.
