The Flaming Lips is a psychedelic rock group based out of Oklahoma City that has been blowing minds and earning accolades since the early 80's.
The most recognizable of all the band's members is a man by the name of Wayne Coyne, you can often catch him walking across the crowd in a man-size bubble. Their music is Epic, as they can make a
song about death which becomes a chart-topper no problem. The band has been known for putting on elaborate concerts and was also placed in the Guinness for most concerts in multiple cities within 24hrs in 2012. This is an amazing group with a lot of content, "Are you a hypnotist" was the song selected to be featured in today's review.
From the start of this amazing track, the drums totally loosen up your eardrums for a memorable series of accents and spacey vocals. The grove of the instrumentation alone takes you on a trip, even before Coyne takes charge of the center stage. I don't know if it's the rhythmic pulse of the drums, but you can't deny the magnetic draw this songs has on your psyche.
"What is this, are you some kind of hypnotist?"- The Flaming Lips(Are you a hypnotist?)
When I was first introduced to the Lips, it was on Last.Fm and I believe they were playing "Do you Realize". This is another great work of theirs that embodies the essence of quality content. A lot of artists attempt to do the Psychedelic Rock scene because they think it's all about getting high an making weird music. The Flaming Lips makes it a point to produce quality music time and time again without it being overly observant.
Unhinged Reviews recommends this group and their collection of songs for the listeners that are tired of radio music and appreciate true originality. "The Flaming Lips" have several albums to choose from, but I took the liberty of narrowing the list for you. "Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots" and "Embryonic" are two good albums to bite into for a good taste of what's in their kitchen. One of the most impressive events that I've seen from this group is that they had the stones to remake Pink Floydd's, Darkside of the Moon. Do you realize what level you have to be on to even consider doing such a cover?
Well the tickets are in and they scored a 110 out of 100 on their remake collaboration with StarDeath and White Draws in Darkside of the Moon.
