Published Jul 31, 2012This spring, we all scratched our heads and marvelled at the bizarre Feistodon collaboration, which saw Canadian songwriter Feist and metal heroes Mastodon covering one another's songs for a Record Store Day seven-inch. If you weren't able to get a copy in shops, then we've got good news for you: the single has now been released digitally.
Head over to Feist's official online store and you can download her version of "Black Tongue," plus Mastodon's take on "A Commotion." This marks the first time the songs have been officially released since the initial run of 5,000 coloured vinyl copies sold out almost instantly.
To coincide with the release, Feistodon have released an an interactive video for "A Commotion." The clip shows Feist singing along with a track while completely trashing a room. A crossfader at the bottom of the screen allows you to switch seamlessly between the two versions, or even combine the two tracks to create a Feist-Mastodon hybrid. It turns out that the tracks were recorded in the same key at the exact same tempo, which makes this a surprisingly cohesive listening experience.
