SSON - EVEN MORE MUSIC REVIEWS

A preview from the MAY 2017 column!

The Flaming Lips (www.flaminglips.com) take a foul-mouthed turn on their most recent OCZYMLODY that finds the pride of Oklahoma City still fracking away at the low-key electronic territory they've been exploring in recent years. The title track is the instrumental opener that launches the spaced out odyssey to a halting and hovering altitude. "How" is melodically pleasing even if it leaves you lying in the corner in the fetal position while the next track has the trio chasing unicorns with beatboxer Reggie Watts. Wayne Coyne's vulnerable vocals re-emerge on "Sunrise (Eyes of the Young)" that offers a glimpse of what the Lips do best as it shines with rays of reflective and emotive pop. Still, the three-time Grammy-Award winners never really lift off into the stratosphere on their fourteenth studio album and not even a cameo appearance by honorary Lip Miley Cyrus on "We A Family" can save this dysfunctional effort. We shout it with our megaphones and we're not even on the bubble about this one - the latest album from The Flaming Lips is difficult to pronounce and even more difficult to listen to.
