Feistodon’s Interactive Video

0 No tags Permalink

Some time ago as a contribution to Record Store Day ballad songstress Feist and hard rockers Mastodon released a vinyl 7-inch single that featured Mastodon covering Feist’s song “A Commotion” and Feist covering Mastodon’s “Black Tongue”.

They titled the project Feistodon (get it?)

Only 5000 records were pressed and they sold out instantly.

Now, the collaboration is being released in digital form for all the world to enjoy.

You can purchase it here.

There’s also a really cool  “Feistodon” music video directed by Vice Cooler. It’s an interactive video that simultaneously matches both artists’ versions of the song “A Commotion” and allows the viewer to cross-fade between Mastodon’s version and the original Feist version using a fader at the bottom.

It’s a pretty neat concept – check out the video here and let us know which version you like better.

And here’s the video with only the Mastodon track over it.

Feist is currently on tour – you can catch her here:
