The Claypool Lennon Delirium are a combination of two of rock's most fearless and experimental musicians. Their music shifts and swerves from style to style, exploring the spaces between psych rock, prog, a little acid, a lot of abstract, and even experimental pop.

    The Claypool Lennon Delirium

    Psychedelic

    South Of Reality, The Claypool Lennon Delirium's epic sophomore album, might be just the antidote this sick world needs. Music so potent it could repel an asteroid impact from space, these seasoned warriors of psychedelia have crafted timeless songs that may as well be chiseled in stone. It's the record Dr. Seuss would have made if Harry Potter and Nietzshe were his drinking buddies, and it'd be produced by Dr. Teeth.
     
    Lennon describes the collaboration: 'Les and I have been cooking up some wizard juice to take the edge off as we sit back and watch reality unravel. This album is the soundtrack to the demise of the world as we knew it.'
     
    Known independently for their accomplished music careers, Sean Lennon and Les Claypool first envisioned melding their powers back in 2015, when Sean's band The GOASTT was opening for Primus on a summer tour. After setting the intergalactic scene ablaze with their first record, The Monolith of Phobos, they've joined mustaches once more to wrap listeners up in a mind-bending sonic cyclone. This is the album you'll want to blare while riding with your mutant pals in souped-up junkyard trucks through the yellow smog of a post-apocalyptic desert. The twosome have created an album of towering sagas depicting the misadventures and indulgences of misfit characters from the wrong side of the cosmic train tracks. Gather 'round to hear tales that celebrate the most unusual and sublime trivia known to humankind!
     
    Claypool brings his skilled combo of rubber and grit, which is infused with Lennon's melodic, spacey style. Together, they tightrope-walk the line between highbrow-clever and lowbrow-brilliant. The explosive result is like pink-flavored Starburst candy followed by a shot of moonshine for your eardrums; a twisted, auditory voyage that will have you singing and hallucinating along to every lyric. South of Reality was produced by the monolithic duo themselves, and engineered and mixed by Les Claypool at his own Rancho Relaxo studio in Sonoma County, California.
     
    South of Reality is an expression of our upside-down times, offering listeners both an escape from modern chaos and a filter through to which to embrace it. This album will suck you off into surreal narratives and audacious, inter-dimensional themes. "Little Fishes" is a bittersweet lament to a purer time, pre-technology, pre-pollution -- an ever-changing anthem that shifts time signatures and keys, calling back to the free-form rock of the 1960s as well as mirroring the way restless generations shift through profiles and apps. "Blood and Rockets," "Borishka," and "Amethyst Realm" immortalize oddball geniuses on the fringe of history who challenge the natural order of things. Lyrics like, "You better be careful boys you just might, set the world on fire" could apply to anyone currently in the political spotlight. With the titular track, "South of Reality," the listener is invited to consider the warped goggles through which we're looking at the world -- the fractured and manufactured intimacy that defines our everyday existence.
     
    Grab your goggles and a month's supply of Kool-Aid because The Claypool Lennon Delirium is about to take you for a ride on a rock 'n' roll rocket ship, and frankly you may never come back!

    Particle Kid

    Indie Rock

    You can learn a lot when you’re both a member of Neil Young’s backing band, Promise of the Real, and the son of Willie Nelson. Not only do you have the chance to learn some of their musical tricks, but you get to absorb wisdom from two of the most important minds in Americana. Micah Nelson, who happens to be have had these privileges for most of his life, is putting all those lessons to good use on his latest album as Particle Kid, Window Rock.

     

    Due out July 26th via OAR, the record finds Nelson turning his future folk microscope onto the existential crises plaguing our world. Together with co-producer Harlan Steinberger, Micah employed recording techniques that blend analog tapes with modern mixing tech, something he picked up from his work with Young. He recorded with his touring band — drummer Tony Peluso and bassist Jeff Smith — in Venice, California’s Hen House Studios.

    The results are as intimate in their psychedelic vastness as they are warm in their bedroom tones. Lead single “Stroboscopic Light”, for example, has a sense of chaos in the tumbling layers of sound, but threaded throughout is a hopefulness winding its way between the cacophony. It’s an appropriate mix of madness and optimism, as Nelson says the track tackles our “oversaturated post-modern age of narcissistic extremism and hyper-normalization.”

    Take a listen to “Stroboscopic Light” below via its accompanying video, which Nelson describes as “an abstract portrait of an extraterrestrial detective sent to Earth to investigate and document what the hell happened, but who discovers only madness, the fracturing of reality, and a planet in moral crisis, where the lines between good and evil have become blurred and undefined.”
