Bursting the bubble: The un-expectations of The Flaming Lips indyweek.com

Excerpt
What's more, they've stayed connected, whether by joining MGMT to cover that band's hit onstage or collaborating with essential young acts like Lightning Bolt, Prefuse 73 and (more debatably) Neon Indian. They've stuffed new songs on flash drives inside of gummy fetuses and vaginas, and they've covered Dark Side of the Moon. Really, a summary of headlines about The Flaming Lips reads like the "Sheet of Stoned Ideas" from a band less interested in satisfying the suits and more interested in using their rare position as a profitably strange and strangely profitable act to try things, to have fun, to make pop something more than it has been before.
