The Flaming Lips – “I Found This Star On The Ground,” “Butterfly, How Long It Takes To Die” & “Evil Minds”

The Flaming Lips are pretty into gimmicks right now -- they have packaged songs inside of gummy skulls and gummy fetuses this year -- and so it should be of no surprise that the band's latest weird product/release format is light and animation toy called the Strobo Trip. Accompanying the toy is a… More »

The Flaming Lips x Lightning Bolt – “I’m Working At NASA On Acid” Video

Last month, the Flaming Lips got together with Providence noise kings Lightning Bolt to release a collaborative EP and drop the skree-bomb video for "I Wanna Get High But I Don't Want Brain Damage." Now they've posted the second video from the EP, and it's mostly a more straightforward affair. That's not really saying… More »

Watch Weezer & Flaming Lips Play “She Don’t Use Jelly” Together

The Flaming Lips and Weezer -- two bands who continue to reinvent the live music experience -- literally shared a stage last night at NJ's PNC Banks Art Center. At the start, Wayne Coyne and Rivers Cuomo rolled over in the audience in double bubbles (which you can see in Wayne's Twitpics above) a… More »

The Flaming Lips x Lightning Bolt – “I Wanna Get High But I Don’t Want Brain Damage” Video

Providence noise lifers Lightning Bolt have collaborated on an EP with Wayne Coyne. Here's a video for one of the tracks, "I Want to Get High But I Don't Want Brain Damage." (Much different than Björk's Lightning Bolt moment.) At the start of the clip, Coyne talks about doing a reading at Boston's Newbury… More »

Flaming Lips & Edward Sharpe Play “Do You Realize??” In A Cemetery

As anyone that's helped hold up Wayne Coyne's ball can tell you, there's little to differentiate between Flaming Lips live experiences these days. So, when Edward Sharpe and a bunch of crowd members joined along in singing "Do you realize that everyone you know someday will die?" in a graveyard at 6AM yesterday morning, that… More »

Amnesiac Turns 10! Hear Covers Of Every Track…

As mentioned in last week's Radiohead's 20 Best Cover Songs post, our dear leaders' fifth album Amnesiac turns ten years old this weekend. Viewed as a more human companion to its boundary pushing cousin Kid A (recorded during the same sessions and released eight months prior), Amnesiac is an equally progressive statement of alt-rock… More »

Scenes From Sasquatch! 2011

Sasquatch! took place over four nights this Memorial Day Weekend. The Washington Festival included some very anticipated shows, including Wolf Parade's next to last show, new tracks from Modest Mouse, and one of Death From Above 1979's reunion appearances. That's Das Racist's Victor Vazquez getting a kiss from an audience member (not a moment… More »

Stream The Flaming Lips/Prefuse 73 EP

The Flaming Lips' vinyl EP with Prefuse 73 made it to Guestroom Records yesterday, and to the internet shortly afterwards (via Psych Explorations of the Future Heart). That's the "colored freak-out" vinyl above, courtesy of Wayne Coyne's Twitter account. If you'll recall, Guestroom Records is the same Oklahoma City record store that Wayne… More »

Flaming Lips’ Soft Bulletin Getting Cemetery Performance, Live Album

Hollywood Forever Cemetery plays host to film screenings, star tours, Bon Iver shows, and Dia De Los Muertos celebrations (as well as the remains of hundreds of Hollywood legends), so two nights of the Flaming Lips on the property makes sense. According to CoS, the band will play the cemetery on June… More »

Flaming Lips Cover “Kids” With MGMT

Both MGMT and the Flaming Lips played the Beale Street Music Festival in Memphis last Friday, and together they did this version of MGMT's "Kids" during the latter band's headlining set. Maybe it was a way to distract themselves from thinking about the other bands that played the festival that night (Jason Mraz, Slightly… More »

Flaming Lips Release Gummy Skulls, Panda Bear Gets A Skateboard

The Flaming Lips' Wayne Coyne personally delivered a handful of life-sized gummi skulls to Oklahoma Record store Guestroom Records at exactly 4:20 pm yesterday (if you want things to get delivered at exactly 4:20 pm on 4/20, you've got to do it yourself). The skulls each contained a USB drive with four new Flaming… More »

The 11 Most Interesting Record Store Day Releases

Record Store Day is coming April 16. It began in 2007 and has grown into a indie record store and vinyl lover's version of Christmas morning (or maybe Easter morning? RSD happens the third Sunday of every April). The Record Store Day site just posted the line-up of offerings for this year, and it'… More »

Flaming Lips x Neon Indian – “Is David Bowie Dying?”

We saw pictures and videos of The Flaming Lips' Wayne Coyne collaborating with Neon Indian's Alan Palomo. (There were also related Tweets about dropping acid.) The resulting 12-inch is already sold out -- only 1000 copies of the EP were made, and they were sold in Dallas and Oklahoma City at one record store… More »

The Flaming Lips – “Two Blobs Fucking” (Part 12)

When Wayne Coyne said the Flaming Lips would be releasing a new song every month in 2011, he didn't mention what kind of song. Here's "Two Blobs Fucking." UPDATE: As wise commenter frixfrixfrix points out and as a Warner Bros. press release confirms: The intrepid Oklahoma-based artists have created a set of multiple… More »

Beavis And Butt-head’s Best Video Commentary, In Celebration Of Their Return

Last year MTV mentioned that new episodes of Beavis and Butt-head were in the works, but there was no premiere announced, and creator Mike Judge had no comment. But MTV officially announced the show would be part of their summer lineup yesterday during their new programming presentation. Very exciting! Even Justin Beiber is More »

Wayne Coyne And Neon Indian Take Acid, Collaborate

No longer just a tease: Wayne Coyne and Neon Indian's Alan Palomo have been hinting at a collaboration between their bands over Twitter, and it looks like the two got together over this snowy weekend in New York to work on some songs. Their collaboration is part of the Flaming Lips' plans to release… More »

The 12 Most NSFW Videos Of 2010

A couple of Best Videos Of The Week ago I mentioned how nearly every good clip that week was too long, too nude, or too violent to make it on to MTV; one was even removed from YouTube, verification wall or not. But looking back on 2009's picks, it's easy to notice that thi… More »

Wayne Coyne Directed A Video For Ariel Pink “Round And Round”

Wayne Coyne used his iPhone to shoot this performance video for Ariel Pink's Before Today staple "Round And Round." It has less nudity than your standard Coyne's coyne production, but Flaming Lips visual director George Salisbury screwed around with the footage to make it appropriately psychedelic. More »

Flaming Lips Do Yo Gabba Gabba!

Children's TV program and occasional indie rock stop-through Yo Gabba Gabba! recently offered over its colorful set and cast of characters to Wayne Coyne and company, who in turn performed "I Can Be A Frog" and its references to so many animals. This makes sense for children, visually, though a closer listen to it… More »

Austin City Limits 2010 In Photos

Austin City Limits hosted some of the nicest weather in years alongside an impressive line up with main headliners The Strokes, Muse and the Eagles. Some tough scheduling choices though needed to be made like choosing Sonic Youth or Vampire Weekend, Broken Bells or Silversun Pickups, Band Of Horses or the Flaming Lips, and… More »
