The Flaming Lips is said to be in the midst of recording a double disc album, set to be released in September. (via BBC – 6)

Hot Damn.

To celebrate, a wee clip from their Vancouver 2007 show (also known as the night I became a woman).

p.s. I was under that giant ball at one point…just saying

Lastly, who else is stoked for The Breeders?

Ever have those days when nothing really goes wrong, but it seems that nothing really good is happening either? A greyish-white could of uncertainty just hangs there, above everything you do and happens to you during the day.

That has been this past week for this lady.

Which is why I am hypothetically pumped to hear that NEIL YOUNG is playing here in Lethbridge, April 25th but cannot seem to work up the actual level of excitement this announcement deserves. Either way, for real folks, Neil Young, in Lethbridge. Do a couple handsprings for me would ya? The urge to see him live has only intensified for me after watching Rust Never Sleeps, so unlike Fleetwood Mac (which is minus Christine McVie and therefore minus this girl, plus the ticket price is a little steep…like mt. Everest steep) I will be shelling out some bucks to see this. An unexpected announcement which has some people wondering why. My hypothesis is that Bobby D. told Young how sweet this audience is sometime while he was lurking outside his supposed residence.

Other news:

CKXU is airing CKUT’s annual Homelessness Marathon. 16 hours of live broadcasting from streets across Canada to bring attention to a true nation crisis. For more information on the broadcast, click here, for information on CKXU’s airing of the broadcast and to hear the boardcast stream live from your very own personal computer, click HERE.

Lastly, a prep for Sasquatch, Black Moth Super Rainbow. Saw these guys open for The Flaming Lips September 2007  and they were pretty killer. A must see on my list. The synth….The synth!
