Review by Rob Watts

When I first heard The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger’s sophomoric release Midnight Sun, I was under the impression that Tame Impala had released their follow-up to Lonerism. However, I was pleasantly surprised when I came to discover that this was an entirely new outfit of like-minded musicians. If your ears are a fan of Neo-psychedelic pop rock, then this might grab your fancy in a big way. Opening tracks “Too Deep” and “Xanadu” blow the doors open with big sonic boom production, while “Johanesberg” and “Last Call” paint somber vaudeville portraits of despair. Managing to make a big beautiful, gloomy statement, Midnight Sun is highly enjoyable and a terrific listening experience.

Oh, and the band is lead by vocalists Charlotte Kemp Muhl and significant other Sean Lennon.
