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. Well, don’t skip this one. Oklahoma’s foremost psychedelic provocateurs sat in with Yoko Ono And Plastic Ono Band last night on Letterman to perform a versio… More »

Wayne Coyne Kicked Off Instagram

Giving Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne’s tendency to throw vast levels of psychedelic nudity up on the internet, it’s not a tremendous shock that Instagram has deleted his account. Coyne’s already started a new account (and there’s already nudity on it), but all the images on his old account are gone. This doesn’t sit well… More »

Watch Tame Impala Cover The Flaming Lips

Tame Impala have been covering the Flaming Lips lately, and a very nice quality live version of “Are You A Hypnotist??” was played and filmed in its entirety at Rock En Seine in Paris.

The Flaming Lips brought their sci-fi psychedelic stage setup to the Orange County Fair last night in support of their latest album, The Terror. Confetti, strobe lights, fireworks, and smoke bombs prevailed as Wayne Coyne stood above the crowd perched on his alien-like podium. One of the many highlights was their twisted version of Devo’sMore »

The Flaming Lips – “Gates Of Steel” (Devo Cover) Video (Stereogum Premiere)

Last week, the Flaming Lips shared their video for “Turning Violent,” a song from their new album The Terror. At that same session, they also recorded a video for their cover of Devo’s Freedom Of Choice oldie “Gates Of Steel,” which turns the original song into an inward-looking psych-rock freakout. The cover doesn’t appear o… More »

The Flaming Lips – “Turning Violent” Video

Perhaps congratulations are in order. For the first time in what feels like forever, a Flaming Lips video isn’t dominated by visions of naked women crawling through slug guts or whatever. The band’s new video for “Turning Violent,” an ominous churn from their new album The Terror, is primarily a band-performance video, one that capture… More »

The promo-mode Flaming Lips checked into 30 Rock last night to perform Jimmy Fallon once more before Fallon makes the long move to another floor on 30 Rock to host The Tonight Show.

The Flaming Lips – “You Lust” Video (NSFW)

You Lust” is the pounding 13-minute drone-groove at the heart of the Flaming Lips new album The Terror, and its video cuts the song down to a more manageable four minutes. It does not, however, do anything else to make the song more digestible. In the clip, we see a naked man and a naked… More »

Q&A: Wayne Coyne On The Terror, Ke$ha, And How Not Giving Too Much Of A Shit Is Usually A Good Thing

Given the fact that the Flaming Lips have been a band now for more than thirty years, it’s hard to imagine a time without the presence of Wayne Coyne. As one of the most omnipresent and reliably chatty frontmen in rock music, Coyne is seemingly everywhere, all the time. Between the Virgin Mobile television commercial… More »

Turntable Interview: The Flaming Lips

When you name your album The Terror, you better hope your fans are prepared for a dark and twisty album filled with sweetly paranoid tracks built on bewilderingly wild mood swings and bleakly beautiful songs. Luckily, fans of the Flaming Lips wouldn’t expect, or want, anything else. For 30 years, the group has released album… More »

The Flaming Lips’ dark and paranoid new album The Terror is coming shortly, and we’ve been posting its songs for what feels like forever: “Look… The Sun Is Rising,” the uncharacteristically bright first single/bonus track “Sun Blows Up Today,” the endless drone-freak “You Lust.” And now the entire album is streaming online; listen to it… More »

The Flaming Lips – “You Lust”

The Flaming Lips’ new album The Terror is already out in Europe, and its American release is imminent. And now the band is sharing the song that arguably serves as the album’s centerpiece, the 13-minute freakout-groove “You Lust,” a piece of expansive multi-part psychedelia that stands as the band’s longest recorded song since the 1980’s.

Watch The Flaming Lips Freak Out On Letterman

The Terror, the dark and anxious new album from the Flaming Lips, is already out overseas, and it arrives here in a couple of weeks.
