Ending a 16-year hiatus since its last instalment, the most mythical, longest running rock n roll mixtape odyssey in existence, Desert Sessions is back and out now through Matador Records.
They have their most ambitious entries yet in its expansive and elusive catalog: Vols. 11 & 12 (a/k/a respectively as Arrivederci Despair and Tightwads & Nitwits & Critics & Heels). A limited-edition first vinyl pressing will include a one of a kind custom mix & match body swap booklet.
Vols. 11 & 12 were recorded mostly in a six-day span in December 2018 at Rancho De La Luna studios in Joshua Tree, CA, with Queens of the Stone Age founder and Desert Sessions ringleader/producer Joshua Homme enlisting a cast of players including:
Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top)
Stella Mozgawa (Warpaint)
Jake Shears (Scissor Sisters)
Mike Kerr (Royal Blood)
Carla Azar (Autolux, Jack White)
Les Claypool (Primus)
Matt Berry (What We Do in the Shadows, Toast of London)
