FLAMING LIPS, THE TERROR

FLAMING LIPS, THE TERROR

Holy crap-o-la, this album is SHEER BRILLIANCE. It’s so beautiful, it’s immediately come into my top 3 favorite albums of the year in conjunction with Causers of This by Toro y Moi (http://open.spotify.com/album/49Y4TvYCT4ArQw7yKOvubl) and Fear Fun by Father John Misty (http://open.spotify.com/artist/2kGBy2WHvF0VdZyqiVCkDT).

This is what I said on a Huffington Post review (to which I completely disagree with):
“I think the Flaming Lips landed spot-on with the current chill-wave movement while maintaining a dark theme that is incredibly attractive. This album is completely relevant to the new generation of listeners who are interested in soft, produced vocal harmonies and never-ending drum beats (that’s why they’re flocking in masses to electronica raves right?) that can appear as a weakness to those who prefer analog sounds. I’m going to throw ou artists like Junip http://open.spotify.com/track/2WtF0P5ImASOAaiCkwRtBG and lesser known but incredibly relevant indie bands such as Beachmen http://beachmen.bandcamp.com/track/trees-for-days as a comparison. The Terror, in my opinion, is exactly what young kids want to listen to and how many bands that have been around for this long can say they’re capable of keeping their sounds this up-to-date and fresh? Not too many that I can think of.”
