Sean Lennon's done a remarkable job not cowering in the shadow of his father John and mother Yoko's imposing artistic accomplishments. It would've been easy for him to retreat from music altogether, but he's plugged away for years doing his thing—a diaphanous, poised strain of psych pop that has surprising durability, if not the immortal sublimity and mass appeal of the Beatles' 1965-1968 run (what does?). The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger is Lennon's latest project with vocalist/girlfriend Charlotte Kemp Muhl, and what I've heard of their new album, Midnight Sun, suggests that their songs' hushed splendor—think in the vein of "Dear Prudence"—continues to take on charming new shapes. If Lennon and Muhl's relationship is as harmonious as their singing, they should be together for a long, long time. DAVE SEGAL
