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. Its unorthodox. Its unlike most of what youll hear in music today. Its 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
