Mastodon Covers The Flaming Lips for Earth Day I Mean Record Store Day

 

Yesterday was Record Store Day, when people everywhere go out to celebrate a too-quickly dying entity. If you think of it that way, Earth Day and Record Store Day are more closely related than you might think. Today is the day after record store day, when some of the songs bands released exclusively to record stores start popping up online (definition of paradox?). Here’s Mastodon covering the Flaming Lips “A Spoonful Weighs A Ton” from 1999’s The Soft Bulletin. It’s true to the original and Mastodon doesn’t really crank it out like you might expect a metal band to but it’s worth a listen.
