As an original member of Queens of the Stone Age, founder of stoner-rock band Earthlings? and current guitarist of Eagles of Death Metal, Dave Catching — owner and resident of famed Joshua Tree, Calif., recording studio Rancho de la Luna — is lucky to call the most talented people in the industry friends. Foo Fighters, Iggy Pop and PJ Harvey have all recorded at Rancho, as well as others too numerous to list.

So it makes sense that Catching would be inspired to collaborate there with some of his most talented friends. Shared Hallucinations Pt. 1: Sonic Salutations From the Venerable Vaults of Rancho de la Luna 1972-1984 (May 26, Dine Alone) features recognizable collaborators like The Duke Spirit’s Liela Moss and Screaming Trees’ Mark Lanegan.

While the album is a quick, approachable listen that evokes QOTSA, Catching says he drew inspiration for the project from ’60s-era psychedelic compilations, where each track told its own story. Fitting, then, that the record-release party (to take place at Pappy and Harriet’s Pioneertown Palace on May 27 in Pioneertown, Calif.) will feature performances by Mojave Lords, The Mutants, Sweethead and Sumo Princess.
