Lucidity and Why Don't You Make Up Your Mind are my favorites from Innerspeaker, and now there are two great songs already out from Lonerism.

They don't sound anything like Flaming Lips to me. The Flips have never been that chill. Pink Floyd, maybe, but still more upbeat than that. I think if you combine the two though...that could work. But stick John Lennon on vocals.

I always just say "The Beatles doing psych rock". The dude sounds identical to Lennon.

I wouldn't say identical. I'd say similar. Just like the dude from Peter Bjorn and John.

I guess I could google this, but, do they have multiple albums out? If so, where to start?

Only one - Innerspeaker. It's really great.

Yeah, I didn't think it was. Given the people who like them around here, it's a variety of folks so I can't really peg what they sound like. Usually if LM, cobbler, you to a degree, 212er like something and pitchfork raves about it, I have a vague inclination I'm going to hate it. Or if there's a female singer, imps and iyup enjoy it, I kind of have an idea as well. But you throw Martha into the mix, and I vaguely recall shouter digging these guys, then I have no idea what I should expect.

I do have certain expectations like that, yeah.

If Laz recommends me something from the 80s, forget it.
If Laz recommends me something from the 90s, I'll buy two copies.
If Impy likes a band with a female vocalist, I'll probably hate them.
If Impy likes a band with a male vocalist, I'll probably consider them an all-time favorite.
If Axver likes a band with "pop" (or, to a lesser extent, "wave") as a suffix in one of their genres, I'll probably love them. Otherwise, no.
If Ashley recommends me something, I'll probably like it, unless there's a Scottish guy singing.
If iYup recommends me something, I know to load up on dry brown liquor.

And so on.

I couldn't really sum things up like that. I guess if Shouter recommends something, I'll hate it 9 out of 10 times but love the 10th one. For just about everyone else, it really depends.

Every three unattainable Shouter recs yield one Sex Church.
