I only just caught on to the new Sean Lennon & Charlotte Kemp Muhl record under the name The Ghost Of A Sabre Tooth Tiger (or GHOASTT for short). It was released a couple of months ago, titled ‘Midnight Sun’ and an article on them in the new MOJO made me curious to seek it out. If you liked the last couple of Pepe Deluxe albums and the way they mix up psychedelia with female vocals, strong pop hooks and all manner of vintage electronics and effects then this is for you.
It pushes so many of my buttons, you can hear west coast harmonies, Pink Floyd, heavy drums, Radiophonics, Tame Impala and of course a sprinkling of Sean’s dad here and there. It gloriously references the 60’s both sonically and visually and pulls it off without sounding clichéd, their videos are good fun too with a definite Kenneth Anger homage going on here in this NSFW one above. You can listen to the whole album here and watch another video too.
