Flaming Lips’ New Album Trailer Is Sufficiently Psychedelic

March 26, 2013 | Andy Cush

The Flaming Lips new album appears to be of a piece with the material they’ve been releasing since 2009’s Embryonic: heavy, heady psychedelia, with generous sprinklings of Wayne Coyne’s naive-sounding falsetto on top. Sounds a bit like a less vocoder-y Black Moth Super Rainbow. They’ve just released a trailer for the record, entitled The Terror, which features clips from every song as well and some multicolored digital carnage for visuals. Lead single “Look… The Sun Is Rising,” is still my favorite, though.
