MP3: The Flaming Lips – “Silver Trembling Hands” from Embryonic, out October 13 on Warner Bros.
This is a good Flaming Lips song. Weird from the get go, but that bass line doesn’t let up. Could their upcoming album be a return to form? This will be a make-it-or-break-it album for them. Either they deliver something that lives up to their prior standards, or else everybody’s going to completely write them off as just another good-time festival band that used to be cool. Like G. Love and Special Sauce…except formerly cool.
One thought on “New Flaming Lips: Silver Trembling Hands”
The bassline totally rips Suicide’s “Rocket USA.” Like it.
