The Flaming Lips – Be Free, A Way (2013)

Scroll down to content

The Terror is arguably more Steven Drozd’s trip than Wayne Coyne’s, created on his hardware, often with his lyrics and synthesized voice which contrasts with Coyne’s vulnerable falsetto. This disquieting sound collage was recorded quickly in a matter of days (or, rather, nights) with regular Lips producer Dave Fridman, using the “sleepwalker’s dimension” – those early hours when night turns to day and only farmers and rock stars are awake. The melody of Be Free, A Way is even more haunting, with a devotional quality given a minor key twist, which is allowed to breathe more against a minimal fuzzy electro backing. [Source]
