The anticipated second release from Mastodon's Brent Hinds. West End Motel is a conglomerate of losers and poets and hobo-sexuals. Tom Cheshire met Brent Hinds in Atlanta on a corner under a bridge in 1993. They were panhandling and drinking cough syrup and songs just started spewing out of them. Songs were written on an acoustic guitar and a bucket for drums with the occasional toy piano in the background. They write and sing for the underdog and give the listener a glimmer of hope. The songs have taken on a life of their own and have never sounded the same twice; the music is honest.
