flaming lips and neon indian team up for tripped out 12" – stream it in full

Yesterday, Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips went on a little road trip, hand-delivering copies of his new collaborative 12″ with Alan Palomo of Neon Indian.

Coyne only made two stops, to Guestroom Records in his hometown of Oklahoma City and Good Records in Dallas — owned by his pal Tim DeLaughter of The Polyphonic Spree.

So far, only 1,000 copies were pressed and they sold out immediately. Coyne tweeted the photo below of the packaging, which features special colored vinyl that’s unique to every copy.

As for the tunes, they’re acid tinged experimentation that go beyond even what Coyne or Palomo generally do alone. The “single,” as it were, is “Is David Bowie Dying?”:

We’ve uncovered the remaining three tracks, which sound less like songs and more like studio noodling. Here’s “Alan’s Theremin”:

Check out the far out “You Don’t Respond” — just don’t get thrown off by the spotty right channel connection:

And finally, the amusingly titled “Do You Want New Wave Or Do You Want The Truth, Part 2”:

We’ll see if another pressing, digital release or further collaboration are to come.
