Mystical Weapons is the brand new project of Sean Lennon and Deerhoof’s drummer Greg Saunier.
According to the press release, the two met a couple of years ago when Deerhoof shared the bill with the Plastic Ono Band in a San Francisco show. Sean Lennon’s Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger were down to play the following day and he asked Saunier if he’d want to form a duo to open the show.
They’ve continued to collaborate since and have just announced the release of their self-titled debut album, due out on January 15th via Lennon’s own Chimera Music.
‘Mechanical Mammoth’ is the first taste they’re offering us. Listen to it below.
