What is the Light?

December 9, 2009

I forget how pop-wonderful The Flaming Lips can be. I’ve been pretty disappointed with them the past couple of years, but I’ve been slowly bringing out some of their older albums, e.g. The Soft Bulletin, which is where I pulled the title of my post from. “What is the Light?” is a true musical delight. When they released this album back in 1999, it was their 9th. NINTH. These guys were pounding out music. Their first full length Hear it Is is a pleasure to hang out with, I’m also a fan of Transmissions from the Satellite Heart which arguably features their most famous track “She don’t use Jelly.” It’s so famous you can even hear a sample of it on Wikipedia.

Moving on, my show is tonight from 8 to 10 pm listen in on KRUI 89.7 fm or online here. I don’t have many shows left, so listen in.
