There's a pretty severe lack of dynamic in the music of both. For me, it's like listening to a lawnmower.
QOTSA sounds like a lawnmower? Does not compute. Dude's voice is all kinds of sexy smooth.
QotSA's sound is like a perfect combination of sexy smooth and crunchy raw. I don't understand how you could compare them to a lawnmower unless your lawnmower blasts Prince each time you use it or something.
And picturing them play songs from their new album at the Gorge gets me all sorts of excited. God damn do I love that album.
Are we talking about The National here or QOTSA? Because I feel like this is a true statement for either one.
I'm also curious to know which Queens album(s) Señor Rito listened to because I used to be only half a fan of theirs, but their new album really grew on me. I can hear so much Bowie influence in it and I love me anything Bowie.
I was talking about QotSA, but the same goes for The National.
I must confess that before tonight I had listened to a total of 0 albums by the National and Queens of the Stone Age, so I decided to check thems out and it turns out the former makes my cut but the belt sander does not. Taking the schedule into account, and not counting Panda Bear as items 1-9 even though I still do, my list now looks like this:
1. PeeBs 2. Liars 3. Mogwai 4. half of M.I.A. 5. Violent Femmes 6. The National 7. Brody Dalle 8. Eugene Mirman 9. Eric Andre 10. Hannibal Buress 11. Deafheaven 12. Rodriguez 13. Pink Mountaintops 14. Outkast 15. the late-night set with the most corn chips
You didn't dig QotSA? What album(s) did you listen to?
