Psych-Rock Duo On Pink + Purple Split-Colored w/Blue Splatter Vinyl 2LP!
Features The Epic Lead Track "Blood And Rockets"!
South Of Reality, The Claypool Lennon Delirium's epic sophomore album might
be just the antidote this sick world needs. Music so potent it could repel an
asteroid impact from space. These seasoned warriors of psychedelia have crafted
timeless songs that may as well be chiseled in stone. The monolithic dream
team's new record was produced by Les Claypool and Sean Lennon
themselves, and engineered and mixed by Les Claypool at his own Rancho Relaxo
studio in Sonoma County, California.
Their second collaborative album follows their 2016 debut LP, Monolith Of
Phobos, and a 2017 covers EP, Lime And Limpid Green. In an interview with
Rolling Stone about the new record, Claypool and Lennon say it "feels like an
organic extension of Monolith of Phobos, blending the wildly surreal and
psychedelic with satirical social commentary." The album features "Cricket
Chronicles Revisited", a continuation of a track from their debut album, as well
as "Easily Charmed By Fools", which was inspired by a line in a Charles Bukowski
story. Rolling Stone describes the lead single "Blood and Rockets", about rocket
scientist Jack Parsons, as "a sprawling epic that finds Lennon and Claypool
crooning and snarling, respectively, over spacey synths and chiming guitars."
Grab your goggles and a month's supply of Kool-Aid because The Claypool Lennon
Delirium is about to take you for a ride on a rock 'n' roll rocket ship, and
frankly you may never come back!
"South of Reality is weird. Itís unorthodox. Itís unlike most of what youíll hear in music today. Itís completely disinterested in what you think of it, content instead to embrace its oddity, its mixture of mischief and funk, prog rock and psychedelica, metal swagger and dreamlike jams. That's what makes the album so damn great. Why hew to one category or another when you can just hew to all of them?... South of Reality, ultimately, is a great album, but more importantly, it's a great adventure." - Paste Magazine
