OMG YOU GUYS BIG NEW MUSIC DAY TODAY ITS A BIG ONE first up The Hunter by Mastodon, the hard hitting metal/prog group from Atlanta that is making a strong case for the position of best currently active band (“The King of Limbs” didn’t hurt). Title track is below, which is, on an initial reading, the most melodic track on the album and thus safest for work, although if you’re listening to metal at work where are you working because you’ve got kind of a cool workplace vibe. P.S. if you want to get fired up for something Mastodon’s Moby Dick inspired concept album Leviathan (a Cosmic Joker Top Pick) from back when they were just a metal group (and not metal/prog) is about as brutal as it gets.


NOW for those of you who are less metal inclined today also sees the release of Wilco’s The Whole Love. Wilco’s best work is probably in the past, but they deserve your undying faithfulness because Yankee Hotel Foxtrot (another Cosmic Joker Top Pick). Wilco has been way stingier with their promo singles than Mastodon so “I Might” is the only song I’ve heard off the new album, but its a good one. Enjoy!
