The GOASTT (or more formally The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger) perform and talk about their new music in the WNYC Studio. This band, founded by Sean Lennon and Charlotte Kemp Muhl, has expanded and received an infusion of electricity since they first played on Spinning On Air in 2010. The wild spirit of the 1960s is heard in their music, continuing that decade's melding of rock songs with experimental and psychedelic influences--a melding originally led in part by Sean's parents John Lennon and Yoko Ono.

Sean and Charlotte have plugged in their guitar and bass, respectively, and along with Jared Samuel on electric keyboards, Robbie Mangano on electric guitar, and Tim Kuhl on drums, they're making ornate, rowdy, tuneful songs. David Garland welcomes the group to the studio as they sing and play songs from their new album "Midnight Sun."
