GOASTT at Hammerstein in June (more by Gretchen Robinette)
GOASTT
GOASTT

Sean Lennon's band The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger (or The GOASTT) put out their newest album, Midnight Sun, earlier this year and have now made a video for one of its tracks, "Too Deep," which was filmed right here in NYC. The song recalls the more psychedelic moments of Sean's father's band, but hey if Tame Impala can do it, why can't an actual Lennon? The video premieres in this post and can be watched below.

GOASTT are currently on a tour with Beck (which just hit NYC). They'll play NYC again (without Beck) during this year's Summerscreen series in McCarren Park. They play on July 30 along with a screening of Heathers. That show is free. All dates are listed below.

We're also giving away a signed vinyl copy of Midnight Sun. Details on how to enter to win that, with the list of dates and new video, below...

I feel I've never told you the story of the GOASTT

Posted by Anonymous | July 10, 2014 10:35 AM

If my dad was a famous musician, the last thing I would do is become a musician.

Same thing if he was a famous athlete.


@10:16
I don't want to be in a band but I'm in the biz bitch.

Now go back to making that soy latte.

Kemp Muhl is an extremely attractive woman.

This may be the most pretentious bio ever written.

Sean, You've got a super hot girlfriend and plenty of dough. Just go and live on some island somewhere and be happy. You don't have to do this.

Posted by Anonymous | July 10, 2014 11:02 AM

Sean has been toiling in other bands and NOT cashing in on his dad's name for ages. guy is 38, he's been doing what he wants, taking his time, developing his own music, finding his 'voice'. maybe you don't like it and thats fine, but he's a talented guy and not afraid of hard work.

Posted by Anonymous | July 10, 2014 11:08 AM

Maybe he is a hard worker, but the drivel that 10:56 linked to doesn't help Sean's image at all.

Posted by Anonymous | July 10, 2014 11:09 AM

Here's the thing

I'm sure he's a hard worker. I'm sure he's talented, and I'm sure he's put in the time...

BUT we can all agree he wouldn't be known if it weren't for his name. Sorry guys it's just how it is.

Posted by Anonymous | July 10, 2014 11:19 AM

Not to mention doing EVERYTHING he can to look exactly like John - from the beard to the circle-glasses to the 60's era hippie garb.

Posted by Anonymous | July 10, 2014 11:28 AM

I give him credit for trying, because if John Lennon was my dad I certainly wouldn't be toiling away with a forgettable band like this. Not very talented though - guess it skips a generation.

10:41 thinks buying the latest Katy Perry on iTunes makes him "in the biz".

Posted by Anonymous | July 10, 2014 11:40 AM

being in the "biz" renders your opinion worthless, because your appreciation of music is conflated with your appreciation of dolla signs. almost everyone in the "biz," including many of the musicians, are soulless fucks who listen to crap, but talk the artistic talk like pros (which they are) because they wanna ingratiate themselves with up & coming youth so they can maybe make a buck. do your own thing, avoid that shit, ignore those people, find things for yourself.

- hard working, touring, full time musician.

P.S. oh & credit to sean lennon for just doing whatever the fuck he wants regardless. and for dating kemp muhl. that too.

WHAT A JOKE!
The GOASTT is two people, Sean Lennon and Charlotte Kemp Muhl. It is, in itself, a chimera; a fabulous creature made with parts of two distinctly different creatures. It is also an acronym, as you might guess from its being capitalized like that. By virtue of being a friend to, and fan of, both the zygotes in this organism, I know what its letters stand for, but it's not mine to reveal. I expect they will do so at some future point.

Mid-30s hippies: the first generation to be exactly like their parents. Disgusting.

I enjoy the sound and the band. Who you say Sean is related too?

Posted by Gary Hoopengardner | July 10, 2014 12:09 PM

What about ... The GRAMMAR or The HUMMUS, no?

Posted by Anonymous | July 10, 2014 12:58 PM

Kemp Muhl is not that hot. I saw her and Sean at Union Pool once. I first noticed her (initially not realizing who she was or who she was with), and was like, wow, that girl is super hot. And at first glance she's incredibly striking, no argument there. And then you take a closer look and you realize how much work she's had done. And she's 25. Just sayin'. Apparently they met at a music festival when she was 18 and he has 32 or 33. That's not creepy at all.

12:58, does it really look like she's had work done? i've never seen her in person, but there are ten million images of her via google.

What can I say: huge fan-- just wish they'd add Red Rocks outside Denver to their Beck tour. Love the song and video-- gets adrenaline pumping and nice noir twist at end.

Fuckin' Weird Al is totally rockin' these days, huh?

Posted by E.L. Fudge | July 10, 2014 2:28 PM

What jealous loser commenters here.

You all wish you could be Sean Lennon. The name, the money, the can do whatever he fucking wants life. Oh and you probably wish you were his dick also which has seen the inside of plenty of hot chicks besides Kemp Muhl. And not talking about the ones who have been publicized aka Miho and Bijou Phillips. This guy has fucked his way through some very hot women.

Posted by Anonymous | July 10, 2014 2:30 PM

Unlike 90% of the commentators here I have actually seen GOASST live. They are fine - nice energy, cool sounds, and pop hooks. Some of you need a sammich and a nap.

@11:52 long and boring post about nothing. You haven't commented on my main point.

"BUT we can all agree he wouldn't be known if it weren't for his name. Sorry guys it's just how it is."

@2:30

Who are you? Are you that into a single dude you typed out a long boring post.

Instead of being born with the silver spoon, I don't mind working my ass of to actually EARN something. Instead of my name and money doing all the talking

Nobody will ever actually respect Sean for Sean, unfortunately.

M thinks Sean and Charlotte are a couple no more. Making things weird on tour.

Posted by Smack | July 10, 2014 3:06 PM

^They are still very much a couple.

@2:56, your bitterness pervades every comment you make on this thread.

Hey, Anonymous, when do we hear your band? You have a big mouth but nothing to show. You're the cheapest kind of whiny ass never been. C'mon boy, plug in that guitar and show us something. Oh. wait, that's right. You don't actually have a talent, you just sit in your little pathetic room and spew. I'm truly sorry that your life is such a painful disappointment. Oh, well, better you than me. HAHAHAHA!

Take it to Brooklyn Bowl. I'll be there. Waiting.

Music aside.... Lennon's girlfriend is butt slam-alicious! Lucky son of a bitch (literally)

Posted by Anonymous | July 10, 2014 4:32 PM

I saw Ghost... play at Maxwell's several years ago. They opened for Dave Davies of the Kinks. It was just Sean and Charlotte. It was a great gig, no pretense, good songs, a lot of fun. This guy has been playing for years and seems like he enjoys music for its own sake. Good for him.

Posted by Brian | July 10, 2014 4:33 PM

I think Midnight SUn is a fantastic album. It's super psychedelic and adventurous. Great songs--killer headphone music.

Posted by Ryan Dornan | July 10, 2014 4:36 PM

Josh has been oddly dormant for a couple of days, so I'm sure he's ready to kick up all sorts of obnoxious dust.
