typical Tuesday Morning, 10am
Oklahoma City's golden children, The Flaming Lips, have plans to release their star studded double LP, The Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends, as a Record Store Day 2012. Boasting an almost unbelievably diverse cast of performers, Heady Fwends includes Bon Iver, Erykah Badu, Nick Cave, Yoko Ono, Neon Indian, Ke$ha, Jim James of My Morning Jacket, Lightning Bolt, Biz Markie, New Fumes, Chris Martin of Coldplay, and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zero, among others.
The first of many tracks that will no doubt surface between now and Record Store Day, "Ashes In The Air" features Bon Iver joining the spaced-out, psychedelic, okie-indie-popsters. The Future Heart, whose aim is to chronicle their "enthusiasm for life, rock n’ roll, pop culture and The Flaming Lips," released the track earlier this evening to both the internet and Sirius XM DJ (and one of my many twitter nemesis), Jenny Eliscu. Eliscu premiered the song on her XM U program.
