Alas, the CD hasn't sold many copies or gotten much airplay. Because the album and the duo are so understated and because there's so much demand for loud, in-your-face music, they are likely to remain in a small niche (where they seem perfectly happy to stay). As Kemp Muhl aptly describes the music in Rolling Stone magazine, it's "charmingly off-kilter." I enjoy it very much.
On the NPR website, you can watch the duo perform "Jardin du Luxembourg," "Schrödinger's Cat," "Dark Matter, White Noise," and "The World Was Made for Men" in an 18-minute Tiny Desk Concert. The same website also has a video of their performance of "Lavender Road" from an hour-long WNYC interview, together with audio of "Rainbows in Gasoline," "Richard Brown," and other songs.
The interview, presented in its entirety, reveals Lennon to be a sensitive and insightful person. It's particularly touching to hear him speak about the loss of his father, the therapeutic role music played in his childhood, and his natural evolution into a musician. In addition, the MySpace page for Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger has numerous videos, both musical and personal.
This is a great album to chill out to and forget the world for a while.
I could go on about how they ' this ' or the way they ' that ' .....but you should really check it out for yourself.
I will say this, Sean has not only escaped the brutal shadow of his Dad's music and status as an icon...he has surpassed it.
In fact, take John out of the equation and give Sean the respect he deserves as a musician, a human who has lots to offer and is doing just that. They write intelligent lyrics about relative and relevant topics, and it's just avant-garde enough to work wonderfully behind the incredible music they write together.
