The Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends Track Listing

Oh God, I’m more excited now about Record Store Day, April 21st, than I was when we found out about the Bon IverTHE FLAMING LIPS collaboration. Why? Because the gossip turning around the rumour mill was true. The Flaming Lips are making music with everyone’s drunken guilty pleasure, Ke$ha. And here’s the full track listing for the album, The Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends.

Our very own psychedelic rockers Tame Impala have jumped onto The Flaming Lips’ travelling bandwagon, adding their unique talents to what is set to be a surprising and eclectic vinyl release.
The track I’m most looking forward to is of course, number 7, ‘You, Man? Human?’- can’t go past homegrown sex symbol, Nick Cave (IT’S TRUE. HE’S A MUSICIAN AND A WRITER, GUYS: THAT’S SEXY). Plus then you’ve got guffaw-worthy titles like ‘I’m Working At NASA On Acid’; I don’t think The Flaming Lips can do wrong. And remember in the immortal words of Mr. Coyne, “no 2 discs will look exactly alike.” They’re multi-coloured records within custom art jackets. These babies are rare and beautiful.

Hannah’s best friend describes her writing as 'like Hunter S. Thompson, except less engaging and less good.' Her boyfriend says she’s 'a good writer, but couldn’t beat Ernest Hemingway in a fight.' Apt. If you want a healthy dose of shoegaze, look no further.
