Madison Bitten By The Ghost Of A Saber Tooth Tiger

Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger

Sean Lennon and Charlotte Kemp Muhl’s experimental psych rock project, The Ghost Of A Saber Tooth Tiger, has been getting all sorts of critical acclaim for their most recent (and “first proper”) record, Midnight Sun.

“It is not pretentious and it is not pompous–here is an ingenuous album made by a couple of odd cherubs who just happen to be, inescapably, two of the Beautiful People,” says The Quietus.  PopMatters goes further to declare, “Midnight Sun is a true jewel, and worthy of the linage of one member’s predecessor.”

77 Square‘s Jessie Opoien got the opportunity to pick Mr. Lennon’s brain about the magic behind the music that has everyone talking—and listening. Check out their interview here, and don’t forget to pick up your tickets to see the band live in Madison at the High Noon Saloon tomorrow (Saturday, May 31).
