Listen to music from Mystical Weapons like Distant City and 02 Mechanical Mammoth. Find the latest tracks, albums, and images from Mystical Weapons. Mystical Weapons is one of those projects that evolved almost of its own accord," a press release indicates. A couple of years ago the Plastic Ono Band was playing a show in San Francisco with Deerhoof.

Mystical Weapons is a collaboration between Deerhoof drummer Greg Saunier and Sean Lennon. Lennon has had a solo career since the mid-90s and is, of course, the son of John Lennon and Yoko Ono, but to read the press materials for this project's debut, you wouldn't know that if you didn't already know his name. Lennon and Saunier meld well over most of the album, and the most inspired moments are great. The way Saunier at first meets Lennon's weird keyboard phrases in a similar rhythm, then completely changes the emphasis to give the piece a whole different feel on "Goddess Curlers" is one good example. This is, ultimately, a record of the moment, though, and not one likely to leave any melodies lingering in your head.

Greg Saunier's influence is more than noticeable throughout Mystical Weapons, and is obviously the visionary behind the music as a lot of the compositions aspire to reflect the noise and psychedelic idiosyncrasies of his primary group, Deerhoof. The album's main highlight, "Whisper The Black Tongue", showcases some very unique and complex instrumental maneuvering that exudes a rather peculiar sense of allure.
