The Flaming Lips & Ghostland Observatory – “Tasered And Maced”

The Flaming Lips And Heady Fwends was definitely one of the coolest contributions to Record Store Day 2012. The extremely limited double-LP set featured the Lips alongside a slew of notable guests (Bon Iver, Tame Impala, Erykah Badu, etc.), pressed on high-quality, multi-color vinyl.

Coachella 2009: Moz, Macca, Cohen Lead Friday’s Nostalgia Parade

By Amrit Singh & Brandon Stosuy
Our trek into Indio went so smoothly this year that we’ve both become paranoid about something going incredibly wrong at any moment, but so far we’ve made it through without broken bones or spirits. In fact, even though the day started with extreme lines and heat, once we passed… More »

Austin City Limits ’07: Sunday In Photos, “Best Of” List

Lollapalooza ’07: Friday In Photos

Plenty of guitar rawk to go around, but Lolla Day One was a dancer’s delight: Ghostland Observatory, M.I.A., LCD Soundsystem, Daft Punk … bodies were moved and clothes were drenched. But of course there was plenty of fun from the six-stringers, like Silversun Pickups who were surprisingly awesome, making up for a lame… More »
