The GOASTT Tour

13th Nov 10 (Sat) Leave a comment Go to comments

Sean Lennon and Charlotte Kemp Muhl‘s band The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger just put out their debut album Acoustic Sessions

On their debut album, “Acoustic Sessions”, The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger show their love of quirky and whimsical ’60s folk pop, reminiscent at times of Syd Barrett, Incredible String Band and Simon & Garfunkel. Though stripped-down to spotlight their idiom juggling and intriguing wordplay, the sparse arrangements are adventurous and playful, anchored by the beautiful blend of Sean and Charlotte’s voices, acoustic guitar and a smattering of other instruments – a vibraphone here, a banjo there. GOASTT weaves narratives around a metaphysical geography of their own devising, finding a surrealist beauty in the mundane.

They are doing a quick set of dates in France / Germany / Netherlands in December, but they’re making a swing around the US in early 2011.  Check to their dates below…

I’m really stoked, as The Woods is an awesome, intimate venue in Portland.  I imagine the rest of the venues are similar.  For a feel for their sound, check out this in-studio video:
