Just Ego Tripping with The Flaming Lips

10 Dec

Flaming Lips have been a favorite of YDP’s for years. They put on crazy good live shows, record brilliant covers and have a continued ability to write fantastic new songs. The Flaming Lips have somehow stood the test of time. With a huge collection of Flaming Lips songs in my library, I forgot that they actually still writing amazing music and therefore should keep a lookout for their next album. This was stupid of me.

Embryonic, their new studio album

Listening to their new song, “Watching the Planets” would you in anyway assume that The Flaming Lips have been together for 25 years? Somehow their creativity, energy, and love of music is as good now as it ever was. The earnestness and lack of irony that the Flaming Lips bring to their songs, performances and lyrics reflects a complete and exultant joy and curiosity in the world.
I put together a playlist of my favorite Flaming Lips songs to celebrate their new album. Listening the whole way through, their ability to reinterpret and reinvent a huge range of styles is remarkable.
