Sean Lennon by himself doesn't exactly scream acid-psyche-freak-out, but team him with wild man drummer Greg Saunier (Deerhoof) and that'll be one of the results. The project, called Mystical Weapons, is an operation featuring the pair along with projectionist Martha Colburn and multi-instrumentalist Shahzad Ismaily, the four of which explore blown-out, psychedelic free jazz on tracks like the new digital-only"Live in Iceland," streaming below for the first time. The song's release is part of a celebration of Crotesque, the band's new LP due on Northern Spy on Black Friday. A spazzy experimental record that incorporates elements of jazz, krautrock and all manner of groovy improv, check out the new track below for a taste of what's to come.
