Friday I caught the fifth installment of Doveman’s Burgundy Stain Sessions (my third).
You can find a full review here on Brooklyn Vegan, but I thought it might be nice to post some audio clips here to go along with the text.
By far my favorite part of the evening was the segment involving Sean Lennon and Charlotte Kemp Muhl, the couple behind the band The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger.
This was their first song last night. (The onomatopoeia interjections seem to be a homage to this song with Brigitte Bardot.)
I loved how much their songs varied from one to the next and the banter between Sean and Thomas. After the odd French rap, for instance, they played this:
Of course, the moment I think people will most remember was when Sean covered one of his dad’s songs. (That’s him singing backing vox, with Rufus on lead.) Talk about shivers. Those lyrics – though inherently hopeful – have certainly taken on an air of sadness, too.
