EDITORS’ NOTES

Following the chamber-folk elegance of The Acoustic Sessions and the quirky, Tropicalia-tinged La Carotte Bleue, Sean Lennon and Charlotte Kemp Muhl expand their approach on the visceral, rock-oriented Midnight Sun without simplifying anything. They take the serpentine melodies and sophisticated song structures they'd already established as their signature and frame them with a mixture of mind-bending, '60s-flavored psychedelia, epic '70s art rock, and something timeless and indefinable that places the blend solidly in the present day. The album introduces itself with the burly guitar riffs, edge-of-madness keyboards, and otherworldly vocals of "Too Deep" before segueing into the even trippier "Xanadu," as Lennon and Muhl's voices weave into and around each other. Lennon's well-known love for obscure psych records makes it likely that the cover of '40s tune "Golden Earrings" was inspired by a version by the '60s band Gandalf. A psychedelic vibe runs throughout the album, but Midnight Sun still shines with a fresh kind of light.

Love the clips. Can not wait to get the record!
Sounds awesome.

Amazing

This sounds like it will be much better than the previous work. Very eastern/70's/psychedelic/futuristic is the way I'd describe it. Amazing vocals, hamonies, and complex interlaced sounds. I cannot wait for this.

Can't wait for release!

Big fan of the GOASTT, been a while since the last album, so I am well ready for a new GOASTT experience.
