What does a punk rock size do after having two kids and finishing the baby break? Of course, she's recording another album, but this time solo. Josh Homme's wife is truly no cricket-at-the-stove type, and so she captured her idiosyncratic ideas - on topics such as creating lives, the adversities of modern everyday life and survival tips - in nine refreshingly loud, cheeky punk rock songs that blow a lot of positive energy through the speakers. Most of the songs, which are given a touch of 80s sound by the partial use of vintage equipment, are about processing traumatic experiences in such a way that they take you further. The musical means of transport for these messages are shredding electric guitars with lots of reverb, various rhythm machines, real drums, keyboards and once even sound samples with baby babble and scream. Not to forget the mariachi band on "Underworld", whose appearance leads the wild punk ride towards Calexico and makes the song a candidate for the next "Desperado" movie.
