Puscifer and Steven Drozd – Rocket Mantastic

Follow http://twitter.com/FutureHeartDay for songs of the day, the latest and greatest music news, daily Flaming Lips quotes and more.

As previously noted on this blog and elsewhere, Steven Drozd scored Christopher Pomerenke’s probing music documentary The Heart is a Drum Machine (more on the film – here).  Most of the score is instrumental electronic ambient music (much more on the score – here), with one stand-out exception: a cover of Elton’s John’s “Rocket Man” with Tool/ A Perfect Circle’s Maynard James Keenan (under his solo projects alias, Puscifer).  The combination of these two figures, their two fanbases and their two sounds (focus on the vocals and it could be A Perfect Circle, but listen closely to the music and it could be a Yoshimi B-side) made for a very buzz-worthy release.  Maynard James Keenan also appears in The Heart is a Drum Machine, and the same film company that produced the documentary is currently promoting Blood into Wine, a film about Maynard’s interest in winemaking.
