Description

http://www.facebook.com/songsoftheday On October 28, 2014, Flaming Lips will release their cover album of The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. With contributions from Maynard James Keenan, Moby, My Morning Jacket, Miley Cyrus, MGMT, Tegan and Sara, Phantogram, J Mascis, Foxygen, Dr. Dog, New Fumes, Grace Potter, Zorch, Treasure MammaL, Def Rain, Pitchwafuzz, Birdflower, Morgan Delt, Sunbears, Julianna Barwick, Chuck Inglish, Electric Wurms, Fever The Ghost, and The Autumn Defense, the album is decidedly refracted through a psychedelic, experimental light, with spastic noise rock, fuzzy guitars, eerie vocals, and propulsive electropop beats. The band wisely goes small on A Day in the Life, featuring Cyrus and New Fumes, with Lips' frontman Wayne Coyne handling the John Lennon vocal part over a fairly faithful piano approximation of the original. Cyrus takes on Paul McCartney's segment and sounds genuinely sleepy singing it. Meanwhile, what sounds like a preset factory beat from a Casio keyboard grounds her voice. When the song ramps up the apocalyptic conclusion, the original orchestra cacophony is replaced with a storm of static that comes to an abrupt end. Proceeds from the album will benefit The Bella Foundation SPCA, an organization that helps low income, elderly, or terminally ill pet owners with the cost of veterinary care. Ahead of the release, the album is streaming in full at NPR.org - http://www.npr.org/2014/10/19/356125413/first-listen-the-flaming-lips-with-a-little-help-from-my-fwends.
