Update: Hear Flaming Lips’ gummy skull now!


    It remains to be seen whether The Flaming Lips will top themselves in the next eight months, but as of now, this is the most absurd release of 2011. As previously reported, Wayne Coyne and friends have decided to release four new songs on a USB drive that has been encased in a life-sized brain made of “edible gummy bear stuff,” which in turn has been placed inside a life-sized Gummi-skull.

    Earlier today, Wayne Coyne sold the first five gummy skulls for $150 a piece at the Guest Room in Oklahoma City, OK. Psych Explorations of the Future Heart has streams for all four of the tracks included: “Drug Chart”, “In Our Bodies Out of Our Heads”, “Walk With Me” and “Hillary’s Time Machine Machine”.
