The Flaming Lips
As the world awaits Lipsha, the unlikely brainchild of the Flaming Lips and Kesha, Lips fans will have to content themselves more of The Terror, Wayne Coyne's foray into existential despair and ontological dread following a breakup with his partner of 25 years. They've never sounded so gloomy or so heavily influenced by Kierkegaard's paradox of romantic love, but the journey into the psychedelic void dredges up some compelling gray matter. Leave it to the Flaming Lips to take the Beatles "All You Need Is Love," turn it into a contemplative slow jam, and make it super sad.
