Debut album from an explorative multi-instrumental duo: Sean Lennon (Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger) and Greg Saunier (Deerfhoof). Instrumental psych rock & avant garde in a variety of moods and styles. "Whisper of the Blue Tongue" combines Umma Gumma guitar flights with the coarse organ sound of Miles Davis' early electric period. "Consortium Musicum" feels like one of Morricone's spaghetti western themes being eaten by a Japanese film monster. "Dirty" is a lovely piece of blocked piano chords and light drumming worthy of Bill Evans. "Gross Domestic" mixes the feel of '69 Soft Machine and Waka/Jawaka Zappa as brilliantly as anyone since the legendary French free-rock band, Red Noise. Truly, the music here is all over the place, but it's held together by a rigorous intelligence of conception and a joyful "DO IT" spontaneity that continually challenges both players and listeners. With the mystical weapons Jodorowsky displays in his 1973 film, The Holy Mountain, you need to be careful when selecting just which psychedelic shotgun you need for a specific job. With these Mystical Weapons, you can just relax and leave it to them. They destroy form in any style you can imagine. - Byron Coley
