Indefinite Hiatus

I am saddened to say that I will have to put my blog on an indefinite hiatus due to the fact that I currently have more than I can handle on my plate. I want to thank everyone that has ever visited this blog. I hope I have pleasured your eardrums.

You may continue to follow me on Twitter, where I will still post song recommendations and links to any other cool music related news/songs/etc. I will also continue to be a guest-blogger on Pretty Much Amazing! The Music Blog.

Queens of the Stone Age - Mosquito Song

We all will feed the worms and trees
So don't be shy

I turned the radio on this morning because I was too lazy to plug in my iPod and was pleasantly surprised to hear "Go With the Flow" by
Queens of the Stone Age. It felt like ages since I'd last heard that song. I also had the sudden urge to play it on Rock Band. I then recalled how my friend (hi Narek!) had sent me "Mosquito Song" (you might have to scroll down and click on the song) and remembered how much I like it. True story.

Favourite Part: The heavily orchestrated part starting around 3:05. Sounds almost Medieval.

I decided to read up on the band a little bit and discovered they're from Palm Springs. Honestly, I never imagined a band would come out of that place. Or anything good for that matter. I also discovered that they're often referred to as "stoner rock," which is totally lame. Luckily front man Josh Homme seems to think so himself and has this to say:

"The term sucks. The only element of the audience I want to get rid of is the shirtless, sweaty, maxi-mullet jock dudes. We want sex to bleed into the music. At our shows, we want to see half boys and half girls in a utopian world, dancing and drinking."

Cool beans.
