Flaming Lips/Prefuse 73
Flaming Lips/Prefuse 73 EP

According to this guy’s flickr post, last month Wayne Coyne was giving out test pressings of the Lips/Prefuse 73 EP, the very EP that has now leaked all over the internet in the form of crappy YouTube videos. The songs are interesting, though Scott Heren’s presence seems fairly underplayed — or maybe it’s Steven Drozd who is absently floating around, or maybe the whole thing is? Still, I like that the band is experimenting with release formats post-Embryonic, even if they’re stuck in a bit of a haze.
