As reported, MGMT and Karen O show up on the Flaming Lips’ forthcoming double album Embryonic, but as far as I can tell, they don’t show up on either the shuffling “Convinced Of The Hex” or the echoing “Silver Trembling Hands.” “Convinced” comes with an interestingly unhinged, busy pace. The dreamy “Silver” hits more like epics of Flaming Lips past, but check out the Kraut-style percussion. The two tracks are both at Covert Curiosity. The also show up — along with “The Impulse” and three B-sides — on the above pictured digital EP, which you can get when purchasing tickets online for certain Lips summer shows.
Embryonic is out in 9/29 on Warner Bros.
