ngl feels like I could use a new Lips record whatever it might be
Me too Cormano.
Digging: JFDR - New Dreams
keen for this, song titles are classic Flips
I've been waiting for a return to their late 90s-early 00s stuff, although The Terror is really strong
Digging: Boris - NO
I don't think they could ever sound like Soft Bulletin/Yoshimi era Flips if they tried, too much has changed
personally much rather more Terror/Peace Sword stuff which pushes their sound a bit. those are two of my favourite releases by them lol, 2013 was a good year
I love those catchy, dreamy vibes of Soft Bulletin, if they could incorporate some of that with newer, more experimental stuff it should be great.
more like the flaming farts
Hopefully this continues the upward trend from King's Mouth, Flowers of Neptune was okay but nothing mindblowing
Mmm, i like these singles.
Digging: Shakey Graves - Look Alive
Cool. I haven't heard these guys in a while.
Y'know after a few more listens Flowers is starting to grow on me
I think this is pretty much classic FL, some of the melodies sound like they could be on the soft bullet in, song slike waiting for a superman, spider bite, etc. i hear that a lot in the Neptune song.
God this is tepid. King's Mouth was ok but this band is way past its prime.
past their prime, yes. but 7 Skies H3, The Terror, and Peace Sword all came out near the same time and theyre all really good. 7 years ago, i know. but i happen to think this is the best material ive heard from them since The Terror, so im hopeful.
how do people listen to this band without their testicles falling off and rolling away
Digging: 8 doogymoto - Minimalistico
i tried to jam these songs and now one nut is covered in lint and the other one is somewhere under the couch
get it before the cat does.
I swear to god listening to this band is like having a fucking lobotomy in an elevator.
yeah well dont fucking listen to them then, whiners
I only listened to the first one, but
When did The Flaming Lips start making flaccid adult contemporary music? I thought they were a quirky neo-psych band
Digging: Curtis Mayfield - Roots
Love the singles, produced really well
@ars Its not much different from Yoshimi stuff, whatre you talking about.
I only know like 1 song on Yoshimi, but I guess that answers my question, it's 2002
i mean, you actually have Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space 3'd. stay away from my Flips.
Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space is a generally boring album with only occasionally interesting moments and I don't really care about what a guy with a 64% metal chart thinks about my taste, Mr. JesusHitler
I am offended.
Ars I recommend you listen to their 90s output before writing them off, I would imagine it's a lot more to your tastes than their stuff from The Soft Bulletin and onward
Like personally I adore a lot of stuff these guys have put out in their flower-power Brian-wilson-worship era but if you're looking for quirky neopsych (or really anything with some actual grit) they left that far behind in 1996 or so
Oh, I've enjoyed certain 90s songs of theirs, like Turn It On almost got me to listen to Transmissions from the Satelite Heart in the past.
I'm a fairly big fan of Mercury Rev's first 3 albums which is apparently in a similar vein to 90s Flips
I liked both of these, especially Neptune 6. Is that Kacey Musgraves I hear in the background?
Digging: Bob Dylan - Rough and Rowdy Ways
I really dig Neptune
flaming lips really aren't a psych band you must not be a fan they've made a lot of sort of melodic depressive stuff, which I love.
Haven't been able to stop playing Neptune, it's truly a superb track.
me too i love it the chorus is so sweet and emotive, really should listen to it a few more times, everyone, it grows on you, especially the chorus, reminds me of something off Yoshimi, like the song ''Ego tripping at the gates of hell''
