Fall down the rabbit hole with the Claypool Lennon Delirium

Just when you think things couldn’t get any weirder, along comes the joint venture of Sean Lennon and Les Claypool, in the form of The Claypool Lennon Delirium. Claypool, of course, was the driving force behind Primus, and Sean Lennon shares John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s DNA, so there’s that. In addition, though, they make a pretty good rock-psych band.

They’ve released a lyric video for their single “Cricket & The Genie (Movement I, The Delirium)”. Prepare to be mesmerized by the changing kaleidoscope of colors for the video, to say nothing of the album artwork:

The Monolith of Phobos is an actual thing: It’s a big rock, like a monolith, on the surface of Mars’ moon Phobos.

Meanwhile, Claypool calls his and Lennon’s collaboration a “glorious freak stew:”

“Sean is a musical mutant after my own heart. He definitely reflects his genetics — not just the sensibilities of his dad but also the abstract perspective and unique approach of his mother.”

The Claypool Lennon Delirium will be on a U.S. tour throughout the summer, supported by JJUUJJUU, Chicano Batman and the Dean Ween Group.

Monolith of Phobos is out June 3 on ATO Records.
