Watch This Now: Mastodon – “Curl of the Burl”

“I put my hands around his throat, he tried to reason with the sky and the clouds…”

It’s time to get those balls a-trippin’ with a brand new clip from Mastodon. These dudes shredded it up on their last record, 2009’s Crack the Skye, and have had an excellent run leading up to the release of their new record The Hunter, which is officially instores now (it had leaked a week or two previously). Now, if you can handle it, join me in viewing the mind-fuck freakout that is their latest clip.

How to describe it? Part nightmare sequence, part acid trip and part Everlong by the Foo Fighters, Curl of the Burl sees the band take themselves out of the picture entirely and instead leave the story telling to a bizarre sequence of a dude getting high off tree cuttings. It all gets very, very fucked up and I’m not at liberty to spoil how it all ends up for you guys. I’ll just put it out there that you’ll still be wondering exactly what the shit happened long after you’ve watched this for the umpteenth time. Which you will – it might be completely mental, but it’s a fucking good clip.
