Nonesuch: face of a "good" major label

7/24/07 by Endorse

Say what you will about Warner Bros. Records (like, say, the overzealous copyright protection, allegiance to the RIAA's rather draconian view of file sharing, the dubious marketing of multiple versions of the Smashing Pumpkins' Zeitgeist, just to start) but the suits have nourished Nonesuch Records. They've got Brian Eno, David Byrne, Laurie Anderson, Ibrahim Ferrer, Wilco, Caetano Veloso, Joshua Redman, Joni Mitchell...that's one hell of a roster.

Best intro ever; Mastodon rocked the Aqua Teen movie

by Endorse

I got clued in to the metal band Mastodon last year sometime. I needed something heavy and fast to listen to that wasn't prog or stoner rock, and this band just served it up: Named after a prehistoric creature, authors of an entire album revolving around Captain Ahab and Moby Dick (Leviathan), and touring with Tool later that fall? Yes, please.

Then I saw the Aqua Teen Hunger Force film. This is the opening scene, and yes, it's Mastodon.



Love it.
