Queens of The Stone Age - Songs For The Deaf

Their album 'Songs for the Deaf' instantly makes me think  of a desert environment, hot dry and baron. The album is actually considered as a concept album taking the listener on a drive from Los angles to joshua tree while tuning into radio stations from towns on the way. This gives an atheistic feel to the record as its as if your taking a drive in the desert with this album as the soundtrack and the music fits perfectly with the environment with the riff- oriented style of music they play.

Music video for 'Go With The Flow'

The video provides an even better visual example. it rendered in black, white and red. It shows the band driving through a desert highway. The simplistic use of colour works really well and is really effective in portraying the stark landscape and the heat with the heavy use of the colour red.
