Lo Sound Desert provides a deep, intimate look into the Low Desert music scene’s history. With never-ending jams in the middle of the desert which continues to live on with the same vitality, authenticity and resilience as two decades ago. Lo Sound Desert is narrated by Josh Homme (Kyuss, Eagles of Death Metal, Queens of the Stone Age, Them Crooked Vultures), Brant Bjork (Kyuss, Fu Manchu), Mario Lalli (Fatso Jetson, Orquestra del Desierto, Ten East, The Perfect Rat) and many other from bands like Kyuss, Queens Of The Stone Age, Yawning Man, Fatso Jetson, Mondo Generator, Dali’s Llama, Hornss, Slo Burn, Unida and Fu Manchu.
From endless jams in unconditioned rehearsal garages to wasteland venues to smoked-up European backstage rooms. “Desert Rock”, a specific vibe of pure analog rock music, was fostered by the beauty of a surrounding that naturally provides a lot of space. Until nowadays it continued its slow-moving underground spread and became international treasure. In a way Desert Rock never reached extreme popularity like simultaneously grown, commercially hyped Grunge Rock in the early 90’s. But it still seems to be around and inspires new generations of rock bands to carry on.
