Once More ‘Round the Sun
I’m trying something different for the SotM. For the month of June, I’m posting a song a week. If I can keep it up for the whole month, I’ll see about keeping it going. I figure this way, I’ll need to be less selective about what songs I feature, and it’ll be easier to feature older songs instead of always worrying about what’s come out recently.
To kick off the weekly song of the moment, here’s a band I’ve been meaning to feature for a long time, but kept getting pushed back by newer releases I felt I should share instead.
Mastodon are a Grammy-nominated metal band from Atlanta, Georgia. This is the most recent video from their most recent album.
I love this video. It starts out looking like a stereotypical depressingly self-important death metal video, but quickly veers off on a completely unexpected tangent which ends with a twerking competition. And if you watch some of their other videos like Deathbound or High Road, you’ll quickly realize that these guys do not take themselves seriously.
Good music and good fun. What’s not to like about these guys?
