Listen: Tomahawk – “Stone Letter”

It’s been about six years since we have heard any new material from super group Tomahawk, the musical project consisting of Duane Dennison (The Jesus Lizard, Unsemble), Trevor Dunn (Fantomas, Melvins Lite), Mike Patton (Faith No More, Mondo Cane) and John Stanier (Battles, Helmet). The band recently announced the release of a fourth LP, titled Oddfellows. Now, we have a first taste of what the record will sound like, via brand new track “Stone Letter” as well as a short album preview below via youtube. The new album was described as a “full-on rock album” by Duane Dennison, who told Rolling Stone: “There’s no quirky weirdness – it’s very straightforward for us.  There’s almost like this weird, upbeat sound, what I call ‘heavy pop,” and Patton totally got the vibe right away… really heavy Beach Boys.”
