Deerhoof's Greg Saunier Forms Mystical Weapons with Sean Lennon
When he's not pounding the skins for Deerhoof, drum master Greg Saunier is known to dabble in a collaboration or two. His latest effort sees him playing with the son of a Beatle, as he's teamed up with Sean Lennon and formed a group called Mystical Weapons.

According to a press release, the duo came together when Deerhoof opened for the Plastic Ono Band in San Francisco. Sean Lennon's Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger were playing the next night, so he asked Saunier if he'd want to collaborate on the spot as an opening act.

From there, the duo maintained a collaborative relationship, and eventually their self-titled debut album was born.

Mystical Weapons will be available on January 13 via Chimera Music. Album track "Mechanical Mammoth" can be streamed below.
