Maybe I'm late to the party, but:

You certainly can't say the Flaming Lips aren't creative:

I'm a big FL fan, but I would have been hugely disappointed if I ate that whole gummy skull and this was the only thing to ease my indigestion.

The gummy fetus has better tunes. And fortunately all of their wacky releases from this year (gummies, collaboration 12"s, "Two Blobs Fucking," the upcoming song stompbox, etc) are going to be compiled at some point and released all together.

Oh really? I'm relieved to hear that. It's hard to keep up.

A few comments after hearing The Soft Bulletin for the billionth time:
  • The lyrics are so thoughtful and weighty that the feather-soft music is always perfectly complemented
  • The drums are unbelievable, providing grit wherever necessary thanks to awesome overdriven miking.
  • What Is The Light is criminally underrated; that ascending bass line in the chorus is heaven
  • Suddenly Everything Has Changed is one of the most well-observed and quietly powerful songs in their catalog
  • I much prefer the remix version of Race For The Prize to the bonus track version, which sounds like a crappy demo in comparison
  • I much prefer the remixed bonus track version of Waitin' For A Superman to the original; I like the added synth strings and the more modest drum mix

I was very bummed to realize earlier today that I won't be able to attend their show here next month, as I'll be working that weekend. I will cry myself to sleep tonight.

I purposely held out on listening to the vinyl rip of the Lightning Bolt 12", and now I'm glad I did. "I'm Working at NASA on Acid" is rad.

Yeah, I got both Prefuse 73 and Lightning Bolt at Waterloo. Had to mail order Neon Indian from Guestroom in Norman.

I'm going to lose my shit if next month's 12" is the Panda one.

I saw Lightning Bolt two years ago but only later made the connection. The Bowie track was the song of the summer for me. Incredible live.

I am pumped for the Panda Bear and Death Cab EPs.

 
Oh, and apparently they're trying to collaborate with Ke$ha. I have no idea what that would sound like.
