The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger
The Ghost Of A Saber Tooth Tiger (Sean Lennon and Charlotte Kemp Muhl) released their debut album, Acoustic Sessions, in the fall of 2010. It was the fourth album on their own record label, Chimera Music, run from their apartment kitchen.

Like a chimera itself—a mythical two-headed creature—The Ghost Of A Saber Tooth Tiger work from one heart despite having two separate minds. Each are children of unique circumstances—he is the son of two artistic icons; she is the daughter of a Southern military family and was plucked into the world of modeling and globe-trotting in her early teenage years. They draw from a scope of influence like no other.

Expect music that’s adventurous and playful, anchored by the beautiful blend of Sean and Charlotte’s voices, acoustic guitars and a smattering of other instruments. Curiouser and curiouser, The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger’s world is a beguiling Wonderland...

As described by Time Out New York: Brooklynite Julianna Barwick’s voice is high, lucid and vaguely spiritual, like that of a child in a Christian-themed horror film. Her songs feature hardly any discernible words, yet few local musicians are so vocally oriented. On her self-released album, Sanguine, Barwick employs a guitar pedal to loop her voice, effectively creating her own backing choir through a modest four-track. While Barwick rarely mimics the sound of an instrument, her web of vocals ultimately fills the role traditionally held by a band (aside from an occasional guitar, the album is largely a cappella).
