The Flaming Lips are an American rock band, formed in Norman, Oklahoma in 1983.
Melodically, their sound contains lush, multi-layered, psychedelic rock arrangements, but lyrically their compositions show elements of space rock. They are renowned for their unusual song and album titles—such as “Psychiatric Explorations of the Fetus with Needles”, “Free Radicals (A Hallucination of the Christmas Skeleton Pleading with a Suicide Bomber)” and “Yeah, I Know It’s a Drag… But Wastin’ Pigs Is Still Radical”.
They are also acclaimed for their elaborate live shows, which feature costumes, balloons, puppets, video projections, complex stage light configurations, giant hands, large amounts of confetti, and frontman Wayne Coyne’s signature man-sized plastic bubble, in which he traverses the audience. I personally got to see The Flaming Lips play at the Big Day Out 2004 in Adelaide and in true The Flaming Lips style the show went off with a bang!
I have to say i was a little surprised when Rockabye Baby announced they were expecting and it was The Flaming Lips that they were transforming into the latest lullaby cd. Now that i have listened to the lullaby cd, i can honestly say i love it! With a range of cool tracks including Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots Pt.1, The Yeah Yeah Yeah song and Do You Realize? all featuring on the new album.
Rockabye Baby are the only choice when it comes to rock lullabies. They transform timeless rock songs into beautiful instrumental lullabies. This is the perfect way for you to introduce your little rocker to the music you love.
