Pitchfork: Track Reviews: The Flaming Lips - "Silver Trembling Hands"

Click on the link and stream the song (I like it quite a bit). There are actually 2 new tracks on their Myspace, so listen to the other one as well.

When I bought my ticket to see them in August, I got a link to download three new songs. Their music is a little hit or miss for me ( ), but I did like what I heard.

Oh wow, the two new songs on the myspace are glorious. The soulful chorus of Silver Trembling Hands has to be one of my favorite musical moments of the year so far, and Convinced Of The Hex has one hell of a great beat.

"Convinced of the Hex" was awesome live on Sunday. They also played "Enthusiasm for Life Defeats Existential Fear" for the one and only time ever, according to Wayne. I'm liking the new songs a lot as well.

"Existential Fear!" Nice!

I liked the two new songs, too. Didn't know Pitchfork found Mystics to be underwhelming.

Yeah, that was my big Lips nerd out moment of the show. I was super pumped to hear it!

I'm not too big a fan of Mystics either...a few songs here and there are great, but overall, it's rather meh to me.

I don't feel like listening to this "Silver Trembling Hands" business until the album comes out.

Sucks to your asmar sampler.

I thought it was well-liked, not as much as The Soft Bulletin or Yoshimi, but still. It was the first F'lips album I ever owned in full, so I have that connection to it.

If I remember correctly, Pitchfork gave it a pretty weak score. I like a lot of the songs from the album, but for some reason it never felt like they flowed or fit together very well. Kinda like they had ideas for 2 or 3 albums, but were too lazy to finish those ideas and just threw it all into one album. I sorta think they would have been better off releasing it as two or three EPs instead of one album, as there's nothing wrong with the songs, they just don't fit together very well.

6.7... whatever the hell that means. That's one of the few reviews I've read on that site that I not only agree with, but was fairly direct and well-written.

Totally, it seems more like some sort of cosmic sampler than a cohesive album. Maybe it was out of frustration since it has been 4 years since Yoshimi?

Mystics had a handful of my all-time favorite Flaming Lips songs, and a whole lot of fluffy (albeit entertaining) nonsense. It was a mess, but I do enjoy it a lot. These new songs sound like exactly what I look for in the band though. As with SFA's new album, this really seems like a return to madness.
