After releasing a new music video for "The Vampyre of Time and Memory," Queens of the Stone Age have released ... Like Cologne, a 3 song EP which Spin reports was recorded in Cologne, Germany, during their September 4 performance at the Kulturkirche.

Even though Spotify says the performance is acoustic, there's obviously electric guitar and bass in there. I know that for sure, because of this cool video of "The Vampyre of Time and Memory" from the ... Like Cologne EP that Matador Records released through their Vimeo page:

The whole EP is a beautiful listen, softer and more intimate than most QOTSA I've heard. The acoustic guitars and piano are warmer and more organic than the hard rocking Queens' that I grew to know and love, but these songs are just as dark and bittersweet. Josh Homme has really developed over the course of making the ... Like Clockwork album as a songwriter as well as a frontman / singer / guitar player. He struggles to really hit those falsetto notes, but that creates an amazing tension in the music. The rest of the band sounds great, too.

Tracklist:

1. Long Slow Goodbye (Live Acoustic)
2. The Vampyre of Time and Memory (Live)
3. I Sat By The Ocean (Live Acoustic)
