Mastodon’s Brent Hinds Second Metal D00D to Cover Bill Withers’ “Ain’t No Sunshine” This Year
Did I miss a memo or something? Zakk Wylde just released a cover of Bill Withers’ “Ain’t No Sunshine” last August, and now Mastodon guitarist Brent Hinds has gone and done covered the same song for Cease and Desist, a covers comp celebrating the fifteenth anniversary of The Living Room Recording Studio in Atlanta. And, like Wylde, Hinds ain’t changed much from the original. Still, if we for some inexplicable reason think of the two covers as two Christmas trees, I prefer the Mastodon guitarist’s tree, ’cause it’s decorated nicer (e.g., the organ, the orchestral synth stuff, etc.). Just my ‘pinion.
Listen to Hinds’ version below, then remind me that art isn’t a competition in the comments section.
