a nod to the Flaming Lips

Never mind that the lead singer often lapses into Kermit the frog voice - this band still comes highly recommended. Specifically the Yoshimi vs. The Pink Robots album.

Sure I only learned about them when they sold out and played for a commercial (don't let my college-self know) - but with less time to stay ahead of what's cool, I have to let the cool come to me.

In a very avant garde gesture, they let you listen to the entire album FO' FREE. On Yoshimi, track 9 is their "famous" one, but I really like tracks 3 and 5... (Kermit voice can be found in track 5).

UPDATE: Now I'm all about track 6.
