Auf Der Maur : Followed The Waves

Probably only about the third best song from the album that's been welded into our office stereo for three months, but, much like Bubba Sparxxx, former Hole/Smashing Pumpkins bassist Melissa Auf Der Maur has been super-shrewd in her choice of collaborators. So while her former paymistress is palling about with Linda Perry, canny ADM's enlisted Josh Homme and QOTSA producer Chris Goss to cook up a slick LA coke-rock maelstrom. Like the Deal sisters shooting up steroids, this has enough banshee wailing, creeping menace and FM metal juddering to melt the dials on your radio.
