All-American Bacchanalia: Six Days In Mexico For My Morning Jacket’s One Big Holiday

Day 1 There's an eerie sense of calm hanging over the waiting area outside my gate in the Atlanta airport. All around me are people roughly four decades my senior; save for one couple that looks like they may be twenty-somethings as well, I am one of the only people waiting for this flight without… More »

Bonnaroo Lineup 2014

Like last year, Bonnaroo is announcing the bulk of its fest lineup via a 30-minute B.L.A.M. (Bonnaroo Line-Up Announcement Megathon) webcast. The 2014 reveal is hosted by comedians Hannibal Buress and Taran Killam and features a super jam with the Flaming Lips, Ben Folds, and special guests (I'm guessing Foxygen based on this Instagram). Bonnaroo… More »

The American version of The X Factor was recently canceled, but Simon Cowell's U.K.-originated singing contest is still going strong in Denmark, where one of this season's participants is a trio of male singers called ManBand.

Bonnaroo To Announce 2014 Lineup With Flaming Lips & Ben Folds Superjam

Bonnaroo has announced the date for when they'll announce their lineup. If that sounds excessive to you, just wait a moment, because the day of the reveal may actually deserve that announcement of its own. February 19th, preceding the 9PM moment when we find out who will be heading down to Manchester, TN to play… 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. Thus, the Grammys went double-Ringo, and the following night they filmed a Beatles tribute special called The Night ThatMore »

The Flaming Lips – “Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds” (Beatles Cover)

The Flaming Lips have been pretty active with the covers lately; the last few songs they've released have been covers of tracks by Sparklehorse, the Stone Roses, and Tame Impala. Now, they're offering a version of the great Beatles psychedelic classic "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds" -- probably as close to a blueprint for… More »

Watch The Flaming Lips Christmas On Mars

The Flaming Lips have been extra generous this year. The Oklahoma fearless freaks stayed so busy releasing music that we interviewed Wayne Coyne (twice, and that's not counting his Turntable Interview) and didn't come close to covering everything. They're wrapping up that year of giving with one last gift: streaming their 2008 feature film ChristmasMore »

The Flaming Lips, Ke$ha, & New Fumes – “Elizabeth My Dear” (The Stone Roses Cover)

Back in February we wrote about the Flaming Lips and friends' plans for a track-for-track tribute to the Stone Roses' self-titled debut album.

Flaming Lips’ Stone Roses Covers, Chocolate Skull, Frog Recorder Coming Soon

When I chatted with Wayne Coyne earlier this month there was so much to cover that we didn't even get around to the Flaming Lips' promised LP-length cover of the Stone Roses' self-titled debut -- after all, February 2013 is ancient history in Flaming Lips time. But it turns out that record hasn't been lost… More »

Wayne Coyne Kicked Off Instagram Again

Well, that was fast. In September, Instagram removed the account that belonged to Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne, since Coyne kept violating the site's rules by posting images of naked people and such. (Coyne's response, when our own Chris DeVille asked him about it: "I am OK with that. I understand Instagram has its rules,… More »

The Flaming Lips & Ke$ha Album Has Been Mysteriously Called Off

Lately, the Flaming Lips have entered a strange career phase: They announce some outlandish, ridiculous plan, like releasing songs via gummy skull, and then they actually see that idea through to completion. But one of those projects, it seems, is just a bit out of reach for them. The band, who collaborated with trash-pop queenMore »

Since releasing The Terror, the Lips have been on a tear: They recorded a pair of new EPs: a limited edition collaborative releaseMore »

The Flaming Lips – “Elephant” (Tame Impala Cover) Video

The Flaming Lips and Tame Impala continue their creative back-and-forth that started with 2012's Heady Fwends with a video for the Lips' cover of "Elephant."

The Flaming Lips – “Think Like A Machine, Not A Boy” (Stereogum Premiere)

Last month we learned that the Flaming Lips would have a new song in the upcoming movie Ender's Game based on Orson Scott Card's famous sci-fi novel.

Watch The Flaming Lips Join Yoko Ono And Plastic Ono Band On Letterman

The Flaming Lips collaborate so widely and so frequently that it's easy to shrug and move along without investigating when you see their name attached to some new partnership.
