Mastodon have been teasing their new music video for a while now, but I don’t think anyone expected what they have done. The band teamed up with Adult Swim again and they have released the most ass-tastic metal video of the year. Possibly the most ass-tastic video of the year, with the competition being Nicki Minaj‘s “Anaconda.” Check out “The Motherload” after the jump. ALL DAT ASS! Continue reading

Finnish post-punk outfit Beastmilk have partnered with Magic Bullet Records and Svart Records to reissue two of their early releases, the White Stains on Black Tape single and the Use Your Deluge EP. Initially released in 2010 and 2012 respectively, these efforts provided the framework for the Beastmilk of today. Following the release of their debut full length Climax in 2013, Svart Records’ supply of both releases were depleted overnight due to fans clamoring to get their hands on the band’s back catalog. Due to the increasing demand, Magic Bullet Records will reissue both releases digitally and on vinyl on October 14th for North American audiences.
Pre-ordering information is not yet available. Until then, you can stream both releases after the break.

It’s difficult to reconcile that Happy Diving has only been a band for a little under a year. With only a four track demo out so far, the criminally unknown East Bay, California band embody a natural propensity for eased songwriting with catchy hooks and melodies that suggest a band in the long term, combining the groove and drive of early Weezer and California X alongside the depressive morose of shoegaze and dream pop into a unique concoction all their own. Today brings the second single, “Sad Planet”, off of the group’s recently announced, upcoming debut LP, Big World, recorded earlier this year with producer Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Whirr). It’s a track that’s more of the same, in a best way possible. Stream “Sad Planet” along with the first single “Weird Dream” below and pre-order Big World, due October 21st via Father/Daughter Records, here.
