Everyone at Gear Gods has been so hard at work handling NAMM stuff that we’ve scarcely had a moment to breathe and check out the news. But for me, top priority has been the hype-cycle for this new Mastodon record Emperor of Sand.
[a buddy who attended a super-exclush listening party for it has said it is far and away their best since Crack the Skye, so get excited!]
As always, the band are posting pretty extensive, funny, personal studio diary videos chronicling Sand‘s making. Check the first two out below, which include Brent Hinds explaining “space delay,” and Troy Sanders on a beach at sunset.
