The debut album, “Acoustic Sessions” from the duo The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger, is like taking a trip back to the 60’s. That is to say that everything about them, their voices, their melodies and even lyrics, makes you feel as though you are sitting on a pillow in a circle on the floor.
It may not be exactly like that, but once one listens to this album, there is no doubt that for at least a split second they’re going to have a hard time telling what year it is.
While listening to the album, the mind is sure to wander to other artists such, as Simon and Garfunkel and The Beatles. One might even be reminded of the music that was heard in the original “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.” The band is composed of Sean Lennon and Charlotte Kemp Muhl, who got together after they met backstage at Coachella.
If you’re a fan of the 60’s you will more than likely be a fan of this album. It has a solid folksy sound; the vocals are sharp and inviting, and the melodies are smooth and engaging. Be sure to listen for the random raindrops in the second song, “Shroedinger’s Cat”.
