Like a gift from somewhere over the rainbow, The Flaming Lips have gone to the dark side and returned with a brilliant new magnus opus entitled Flaming Side Of The Moon. Stereogum writes: “Designed as an immersive companion piece to the original 1973 album, ‘DARK SIDE OF THE MOON’, listeners are encouraged to listen to the new LIPS album while listening to ‘DARK SIDE’ at the same time. ‘FLAMING SIDE OF THE MOON’ was also carefully crafted to sync up perfectly with the 1939 film, ‘THE WIZARD OF OZ’. For ideal listening conditions, fans are encouraged to seek out the original Alan Parsons’ engineered quadraphonic LP mix of ‘DARK SIDE’, but it will work with the album on any format. Available now through all participating digital outlets.” Well, you know exactly what I’ll be doing Friday night.
NOTE: TO SIMPLIFY THINGS FOR YOU, I’VE EMBEDDED ‘THE DARK SIDE OF OZ’ BELOW. IT COMES PRE-SYNCHED WITH ‘THE WIZARD OF OZ’ AND ‘DARK SIDE OF THE MOON’ TOGETHER IN ONE VIMEO VIDEO. SIMPLY PRESS PLAY ON THE FLAMING LIPS ALBUM ABOVE & THE VIDEO BELOW AT THE SAME TIME, AND VOILA (ADJUST THE VIMEO VIDEO VOLUME TO BRING UP PINK FLOYD TO WHATEVER LEVEL YOUR HEART DESIRES).
