This week we bring you new music from Sean Lennon, Aninmal Collective’s Avey Tare and the Dan Deacon Ensamble
-Sean Lennon has a lot to live up to. As the son of the slain Beatle and all around legend, Lennon has stayed quietly in the shadows, releasing little gems over the past decade. Now he returns once again for a collaboration with Charlotte Kemp Muh on “The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger.” The beautiful psych-pop collection whirrs by in a blissful and melodic haze. Head on over to NPR Music to listen to the album in its entirety before it’s released on Oct. 26.
-We’re always on an NPR kick here at Free Music Monday, but for damn good reasons. One reason: AnCo’s Avey Tare is streaming his debut solo album “Down There” with NPR. The album sets itself as a somber piece of experimentation that ruminates on death, divorce and, of course, crocodiles. Head over to NPR for a first listen of the entire album until it is released on Oct. 20.
-It’s pretty much common knowledge that Baltimore’s Dan Deacon is a little off his rocker. Each album seems ready to teeter over the edge of sanity into some Wham City doom cavern. So it is a little refreshing to hear this concert from last Friday at the Ridgewood Masonic Temple in Brooklyn. The musical structure is a bit more ordered and it’s nice to hear Deacon and his Dan Deacon Ensamble at their best. Head on over to NYC Taper for a download of the entire show.
