    I liked the band more when they were just being underground and exciting and not hanging around with Smiley Virus.

    I really enjoyed their last album, The Terror so will give the new one a listen.
    I think I've totally missed what happened with the whole racism thing.

    Did someone say The Terror??



    "I was depressed for days in a good way."

    The first three songs alone, guys. I died.

    I <3 The Terror.

    \\\

    I haven't heard the new single yet, but I'm happy to learn of a new album right around the curve.

    Heads up if anyone is interested, I recently put my copy of Waking Up With A Placebo Headwound up for sale on eBay. Hand numbered, and autographed. Haven't been a fan of these dudes in a while but this book was one of my prized possessions for years. Figure there'll be some Flaming Lips fan out there that would want this.

    The Flaming Lips with the Oregon Symphony

    On sale now!

    The Flaming Lips will perform their iconic 1999 masterpiece The Soft Bulletin in its entirety, joined by the Oregon Symphony. The ever-evolving psychedelic pop-rock group led by legendary front man Wayne Coyne will create an unmissable, moving, and magical experience. The band’s career breakthrough album featured hit singles "Race for the Prize" and "Waitin’ for a Superman." Upon its release, Pitchfork called it "one of those albums people are going to obsess over for many years to come" – which they absolutely did.
    I'm like 90% there.

    New Flaming Lips album this fall!



    "American Head" out September 11th. The single released a few weeks ago and today's new song have been great and might be a return to form for those who might have fallen out of love with the group the last few years. I liked Ozcy Mlody fine, but it didn't have a lot of repetition offering. The Terror is immensely underrated.

    Lots of good preorder goodies on the store.

    I know I'm going blind but this is a bit much. I see in the promo art a tie dye record but then I don't see it on any of the options under it. Is it already sold out or something?

    As I figured, new album should please Lips fans whose favorite eras were the Soft Bulletin up to At War With the Mystics. Album sits right at home in that timeframe, but is more reflective and sad it's in tone.

    Lots of personal stories from Wayne's childhood give the album it's "Americana" feel with a lot of "Harvest Moon" era Neil Young vibes and Beatles-esque song writing ... all while still in this weird pysch-indie rock bubble (pun intended) the group is known for. Really, really solid record. I adored The Terror, didn't care much for Ozcy Mlody and thought King's Mouth was fun ... but this is really, really great.

    Just bought tickets for the Lips in Seattle. May 4, 2022. Not a bubble show. In a big club & reasonably priced. Hopefully the show & myself will be happening.

    The 20th anniversary box of "Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots" is fantastic! 6 cds, a poster & a good sized book with Wayne & Steven interviews. I had a lot of the stuff in the box but definitely not everything. It's nice to have it all in one place. I wish they would do something similar with "The Soft Bulletin". "At War With the Mystics" would be good too. The earlier years have been pretty well documented already. I've been a fan for a real long time & have seen them several times. One of the bands I don't miss if they come to town. Steven Drodz is 1 of my favorite musicians. Would love to see what he & Trent/Atticus could cook up. I think Steven could do soundtracks if he put his mind to it. He does keep plenty busy with the Lips though. Anyway, if you're a fan I highly recommend this release. Evidently there's a 5 LP vinyl version coming in 2023 also.

    made this playlist of tracks off the new box plus a couple i found on youtube. I only ever had the fight test cd along with my original yoshimi with the DVD, so i had heard a couple of these tracks, but putting them all together with these two extras not on the box from a BBC radio session is like a whole companion odyssey. Can't stop listening to this.

    1 The Strange Design of Conscience Fight Test US ep
    2 Assassination of the Sun Ego Tripping ep
    3 I'm a Fly in a Sunbeam Ego Tripping ep
    4 Sunship Balloons Ego Tripping ep
    5 If I Go Mad/Funeral in My Head Do You Realize CD1
    6 Syrtis Major Do You Realize CD1
    7 Up Above the Daily Hum Do You Realize CD2
    8 Xanthe Terra Do You Realize CD2
    9 The Deterioration of the Fight or Flight Response Fight Test UK cd1
    10 Yoshimi Becomes a Pink Robot BBC radio youtube rip
    11 Go-Alternate Version Yoshimi box
    12 The Colossal Gray Sunshine BBC radio youtube rip or Faultline album version

    So much good stuff here. If I Go Mad? oh man. I have a habit of re-organizing and curating big box sets like this into smaller more bite size things i'll actually spin regularly in my digital collection. Think I'll steal the title of that unreleased BBC track and call this companion album "Yoshimi Becomes a Pink Robot." Just feels right.

    Interesting, I had the majority of the discography but not Xanthe Terra or Syrtis Major. There's some beautiful stuff out there, Sunship Balloons is a favourite of mine.
