The words had barely left my lips when Lisa herself began to realize the flame. Panic set in; she was screaming.
Since its release last October, Tame Impala’s Lonerism has been covered, remixed, and redone by artists like the Flaming Lips and the Field. Now London electro DJ Erol Alkan stretches album opener “Be Above It” to over twice its original length, taking the already techno-influenced “gotta be above it” repetition to a new level of [...]
When I chatted with Wayne Coyne earlier this month there was so much to cover that we didn’t even get around to the Flaming Lips’ promised LP-length cover of the Stone Roses’ self-titled debut — after all, February 2013 is ancient history in Flaming Lips time. But it turns out that record hasn’t been lost [...]
The Flaming Lips are known as The Fearless Freaks for a reason: They’ve been responsible for some of the strangest, most hallucinatory rock music of the past 30 years. But the past few months have been especially chaotic (and productive)...Show More Summary

When I emerged dazed from the Bill Graham Auditorium last Thursday night, I remember feeling vaguely surprised that the city was still standing. Civic Center was still there, empty and quiet.
