New music from the Flaming Lips

The Flaming Lips have been one of my favorite bands since I first heard the epic Soft Bulletin and continuing into the excellent Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots. They're easily one of the most exciting, bizarre and fun bands performing and making records today. The Lips' newest LP, Embryonic, is due out October 13th via Warner Bros. Judging by the album artwork and the first leaked track—the pounding ambient pop tune "Silver Trembling Hands"—it will be a smartly produced but completely whacked out piece of work. To get a sense of the band's musical evolution, take a listen to the 1995 track "Bad Days" from Clouds Taste Metallic.
