Flaming Lips

The Flaming Lips clearly have some great Heady Fwends out there, as evidenced by their Record Store Day release The Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends’ impressive list of collaborators: Erykah Badu, Nick Cave, Coldplay's Chris Martin, My Morning Jacket's Jim James, Ke$ha, Biz Markie; you name it, Wayne Coyne probably wrote them a nice tweet asking for vocal stems. You’re probably going to head straight for that Ke$ha track, “2012,” and we don’t blame you, because it is actually pretty good? Ke$ha sounds surprisingly at home over the Lips’ jagged, deconstructed guitar riffs, and those last few minutes, when she’s isolated over space-y electronics, are actually kind of sublime and beautiful? Don’t take our word for it though: check out that track, as well as the others – we’re especially feeling the Badu collab.
