21st Century Psychedelia from Sean Lennon and The GOASTT

Sunday, May 04, 2014

The GOASTT (or more formally The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger) perform and talk about their new music in the WNYC Studio. Fronted by Sean Lennon and Charlotte Kemp Muhl, the band has expanded and received an infusion of electricity. 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. David Garland welcomes the group to the studio as they sing and play ornate, rowdy, tuneful songs from their new album "Midnight Sun."
