I first heard this song in 2005, even though the album came out three years earlier. Upon first listen, the track evoked images of a young man being chased through a dark alley, but knowing precisely which routes to take because the streets had been his playground since he could walk. This song grabbed me with its heavy, bad-ass bass moving steadily under multi-layered synth.
Fronted by Brant Bjork, ex-drummer from Kyuss, this band and their song still have a special place in my heart. Their sound is undefinable, although critics label it ‘stoner rock.’ Regardless…whether you light up or not and/or if you’re a Queens of the Stone Age fan, you should definitely give it a listen.
