Mastodon - Best stoner since Kyuss?

Yesterday, like most of you, I heard Mastodon's first single (they still do that?) from forthcoming LP "The Hunter". This is the second track to be released from the album, it is also the second, swinging, mid paced, melodic, stoner-y song. "The Hunter" is shaping up to be (a) probably the best stoner rock released on a major label since Kyuss and (b) likely to be one of the most succinct, committed, adventurous and playful psyche released in the last twenty years (c) the album to finally lose the "Wish they'd go back to Remission" crowd. Bring on September 29!

Watch "Curl of the Burl".
