Marisa Tomei’s Parents Are Suing Sean Lennon For $10M Over A Tree

Celebrities sure are thick on the ground in New York's West Village. Sean Lennon lives in a $9.5 million townhouse on West 13th, and his next-door neighbors happen to be Gary and Addie Tomei, the parents of Oscar-winning actress Marisa Tomei. And while I'm sure we'd all like to hear the random Thanksgiving-afternoon stoop conversatio… More »

Watch Beck Cover Prince’s “1999” At Montreal International Jazz Fest

There was a time, circa Midnite Vultures, when every Beck song seemed to be aiming at Prince pastiche. That time was 1999, which is an appropriate time for such endeavors, all things considered. Yet Beck had never actually covered Prince's "1999" until last week's Montreal International Jazz Fest. Sean Lennon, whose band the Ghost Of… More »

Broken Bells, Flaming Lips, Sting To Play Letterman‘s Beatles Covers Week

Everybody's celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of the Beatles' arrival in America, even us. But CBS is celebrating extra hard because they hosted the original Ed Sullivan Show broadcast that helped the Fab Four blow up stateside.

Yoko Ono Plastic Ono Band – “N.Y. Noodle Town”

Yoko Ono's Plastic Ono Band has a new album called Take Me To The Land Of Hell coming later this month, and it's probably the only album ever to feature both Lenny Kravitz and tUnE-yArDs.

Watch Jeff Tweedy, Mavis Staples & Sean Lennon Cover “Happy X-Mas (War Is Over)” On Colbert

On Wednesday, Stephen Colbert signed off his show with an old timey Christmas carol, "Good King Wencesles," joined by Michael Stipe and Mandy Patinkin.

Mystical Weapons – “Mechanical Mammoth” Video

Last month, we learned about the existence of Mystical Weapons, Sean Lennon's new experimental-psych duo with Deerhoof drummer Greg Saunier. Now, we've got the video for their madly blooping single "Mechanical Mammoth." Martha Colburn directs, and it's an art-fucked collage of masked women and swirling colors. Watch it and download the song below. More »

Stereogum Monthly Mix: October 2012

It's been an absolutely devastating couple of days around here, so we hope this mix can be a thing you can put on and feel a sense of normalcy, or comfort. Who wouldn't be comforted by those lips, no? Ten tracks, lots of time signatures/vibes. Go in:… More »

Mystical Weapons (Sean Lennon & Greg Saunier) – “Mechanical Mammoth”

New band alert! Veteran musical traveler Sean Lennon has formed a new duo called Mystical Weapons with Greg Saunier, Deerhoof's mindbending tourettic drummer. The partnership began after Deerhoof played a San Francisco show with Sean's mom's Plastic Ono Band a few years ago, and it seems to be a vehicle for the two to explore… More »

Rock Stars Occupy Wall Street: A Photo Diary

It's a full-on revolution down at Occupy Wall Street right now; the contingent seems to be growing every day, with no sign that it will be relenting any time soon.

Rufus Wainwright And Sean Lennon Perform “Material Girl” at OWS

Weird stuff keeps happening down at Occupy Wall Street (or doesn't keep happening, ahem ahem, Radiohead) so why not add a Wainwright/Lennon Madonna cover into the mix? Let's do this, for the 99%. Also: they needed a lyrics sheet?! "Hey, do any of you guys have a laser printer in your tent?" Watch after the… More »

Iceland Airwaves 2011 In Words And Photos

Last week, from Wednesday until Sunday, Reykjavik, Iceland hosted its annual Airwaves festival. It's an urban festival and a hell of a party, with the city's invariably intimate venues acting in concert to present a slew of shows in a fashion akin to CMJ or SXSW.

The Ghost Of A Saber Tooth Tiger (Sean Lennon & Charlotte Kemp Muhl) – “Jardin Du Luxembourg”

When Sean Lennon met Charlotte Kemp Muhl backstage at Coachella, she was already a successful model and full-time quirk (check out her interview inNew York Magazine).

Sean Lennon Defends Dad’s Car Commercial

As far as rock widows go, Yoko Ono's so far done a better job of preserving her husband's legacy than this woman. The Beatles: Rock Band and Love, the Cirque du Soleil show, are both Classy Affairs, and Ono still curates exhibits of her husband's drawings and mementos for places like the Rock And Roll… More »

We Are Plastic Ono Band (Feat. Eric Clapton, Paul Simon, Bette Midler, Sean Lennon & Friends) @ BAM, Brooklyn 2/16/10

A hefty price tag accompanied tickets to this very special one-off at Brooklyn Academy Of Music last night, a mix of simple supply-demand economics and, presumably, underwriting costs associated with corralling these names under one ornamented roof: The reconstituted, radicalized Plastic Ono Band boasted a lineup of legends and friends of Sean Lennon to survey… More »
