Them Crooked Vultures debut album is released next week, but in the mean time, the band is streaming the full album on their YouTube channel. Be sure to check it out here. I’m only a few songs in, but I’m loving it so far. Dave Grohl (Nirvana, Foo Fighters – as if you didn’t know!), Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age), and John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin) are delivering the kind of awesome rock that those three names are associated with. To me, “New Fang” had clear influence from Queens of the Stone Age (probably because Homme is on vocals and guitar). But the band has their own wonderful, powerhouse sound.
I’ve been listening to “New Fang” a lot in the past couple of weeks. The other songs sound great too, though. I love “Mind Eraser, No Chaser”. Perhaps they’re a supergroup that lives up to their promise?
