It’s Brent Hinds’ world, we just live in it...

West End Motel: "I Like It A Lot"
Brent Hinds has been basking in the glow of the media recently. His scruffy face has popped up in a recent mock video ad for Atlanta’s favorite burrito bar, Elmyr, and he's been talking up the fifth Mastodon album as well, which will materialize later this year.

In the meantime, he’s also releasing a split 2xCD, via Rocket Science Inc., featuring his other bands, Fiend Without a Face and West End Motel.

Although “new” music is a bit of a misnomer. Hinds tells Spin magazine that the music on the Fiend Without A Face release was recorded in the mid-’90s and deviates entirely from Mastodon’s sound.

Fiend serves up a surf rock whirl of strong rockabilly bass lines, while West End Motel is a different beast altogether. Hinds paired up with longtime friend Tom Cheshire (Rent Boys, All Night Drug Prowling Wolves) on the latter project, for which they’ve concocted a sound that blends gypsy folk with creepy vaudevillian intonations for a supremely authentic and delectable sound.

The albums can be ordered through My Play Direct.
