Record Store Day, the bastion of the independent music retailer, already has a huge string to its bow – a notch for its bedpost, if you will – for their fifth year in 2012, in the form of a special split 7″ record proposed from Mastodon and Feist.

If this comes off I’m sure it’ll be great; despite some negative criticism of The Hunter, I still think Mastodon have more than got ‘it’.

Bassist and vocalist Troy Sanders let slip the news in this interview with MTV Canada:


With the support Record Store Day received from the likes of Deftones, Foo Fighters and Rush, I’m sure there’ll be a plethora of additional support for RSD 2012, which I believe is happening on April 21st.
