Mystical Weapons is a new free-form improvisational duo comprised of Sean Lennon and Deerhoof’s Greg Saunier. The two met in San Francisco when Deerhoof was opening for Plastic Ono Band. Lennon’s other band, Ghost of a Saber Tooth, was playing a show the next night and Lennon asked Saunier if he wanted to jam with him to open the show.
The duo’s all-instrumental debut release will be out Jan. 15 on Chimera Music. Below you can listen to “Whispers the Blue Tongue,” a six-minute sonic exploration featuring swirling, expansive guitar interplay, stream of consciousness organ mashing and a bevy of other effects.
