New psychedelic pop-prog by Les Claypool and Sean Lennon.  60's Floyd meets Primus with a healthy dose of Strawberry Fields.  Really solid songs, very creative playing.  More focused than most of Claypool's side projects.  Sean Lennon is the pleasant surprise here, solid vocals (reminiscent of his father), and impressive work as a multi-instrumentalist.  Far better than I expected, I'm really enjoying it.

BTW, I went to the show at Irving Plaza on Tuesday and it exceeded expectations on every level!  It was one of those once in a lifetime experiences...  Claypool was a beast (as always) and Lennon did a great job of pulling off the material off live, he's a respect worthy guitar player, and held his own with aplomb on some real cool covers too boot.  The touring band, Paul Baldi (drums), and Money Mark (key boards, most notably of the Beastie Boys) were both fantastic, having a killer drummer in particular really amped up the proggy-ness of the material.  

 

The set was 50/50 songs from the album and covers, most notably among them:

Astronomy Domine

In The Court Of The Crimson King

Thela Hun Ginjeet

Tomorrow Never Knows

Southbound Pachyderm (with mama Yoko Ono)

 

I really hope to hear more from them in the future!

Hung out with Paolo back in the day (late 90s). At the time he was playing in a band called Deadweight, a 3 piece made up of violin, cello and drumkit. The cello and violin were played through amps and distorted - sounded like Zeppelin, Kashmir style. Fantastic group.

Second album is dropping soon, very excited for it.  Also hoping to score presale tickets in the morning for their show at Brooklyn Steel in April.  Woot!
