After reporting on the completely unlikely release of Feistodon
, the split single between baroque pop artist Feist
and sludge metal pioneers Mastodon
, we're happy to say the songs have surfaced online. What you get on this single is Fiest covering Mastodon's "Black Tongue" and Mastodon turning in a rendition of Feist's Metals
standout, "A Commotion." Feist is always wonderful and if you're a fan of alt metal than you already know Mastodon are the cream of their crop. So guess what everybody? The songs are actually pretty good. Feist finds her inner-proto, industrial rock siren on "Black Tongue" and Mastodon explores grunge and classic rock guitar riffs to make "A Commotion" an explosive and propulsive head-banger.
