The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger to Open for Beck at PPAC, 7/26
With an infectious sense of adventure akin to Beck and Flaming Lips, and several years of touring and recording under their belt, The GOASTT has been recognized for their creative and savvy approach to psychedelia. They released their third album Midnight Sun, described as a "guided tour of bold, shape-shifting sonic murals and evocative lyrical panoramas," in April. NME said Midnight Sun "positively slays" and Pop Matters called it an "astonishing listen."
The GOASTT has toured with The Flaming Lips and Tame Impala, performed at the Hollywood Bowl with Jean-Claude Vannier and released a Record Store Day vinyl EP entitled La Carotte Bleue. Muhl released an EP with her teenage folk duo Kemp & Eden, who also performed in the film Greetings From Tim Buckley. Lennon, meanwhile, released a record by his experimental duo Mystical Weapons with Deerhoof's Greg Saunier, a film score to the indie comedy Alter Egos, and produced the new album by Yoko Ono Plastic Ono Band.
