It feels weird to have What’s Playing Wednesdays to myself again. The Cabal helped free me up a lot in January and February. I wish I could say I used that time wisely, but I’d be lying if I did. *cough* But, that time off did give me a chance to store up new favorite songs. And I have a lot of them!
Today I’m going with a song that makes me just close my eyes and quietly jam out (nothing like The Divinyls which make me sing I Touch Myself a capella *shudder*). Something about the vocals and the pushing guitar riffs reminds me of Mastodon, another band I’ve featured here on What’s Playing Wednesdays.
I’d heard this band many times before on Octane (my SiriusXM station which I heart so hardcore, it could be illegal), but the most striking thing I remember about them is hearing about their bus crash last year. Their bus fell 30 feet off a viaduct in August, sending three of the band members to the hospital with serious injuries. I hope they’re in recovery and ready to make more music soon.
In the meantime, give a listen to this awesome song, March to the Sea. I love this song so much. I hope you enjoy it!
