Feist vs Mastodon for Record Store Day

Some wiseacre thought it would be a really good idea for Feist and Mastodon to cover each other's songs for a Record Store Day split single. So the hairy Atlanta progressive metal crew chose A Commotion from La Feist's latest album Metals. In return, the Juno-winning Canuck superstar fought back the temptation to take a crack at Mastodon's Cut You Up With A Linoleum Knife and settled on Black Tongue from The Hunter, the 2011 album of the year according to such reliable sources as Metal Hammer, Classic Rock and Rock Sound.

In related RSD news, the cover-happy Mastodon are also releasing their version of A Spoonful Weighs A Ton by The Flaming Lips as a limited-run pink vinyl single with – surprise – the Lips' original from 1999's The Soft Bulletin on the flip. Did you actually think that Wayne Coyne would go to the trouble of learning the lyrics to a Mastodon tune?
