Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots by The Flaming Lips
The Classic Tale of Robots and Psychedelia
The Flaming Lips took form in 1983 and spent decades writing and performing psychedelic rock. While their music is expansive and their shows are memorable, The Flaming Lips' tenth album, 2002's Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robot, has proven to be a particularly influential and fantastic work.
With thick pools of pleasantly psychedelic soundscapes and Wayne Coyne softly cooing space operas of the sentimental and the sublime: Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robot is full of brilliantly somber tales and tunes that shine brightly through their celestial electronic orchestrations. Truly worth many a listen.
