Wayne Coyne and the Oklahoma psych-rockers known as the Flaming Lips have teamed up with chillwavers Neon Indian to produce a 4-track, 12-inch EP whose title has yet to be publicly announced. This is the first in line of what the Flaming Lips have touted as a big year of new single-based releases, and as such, this EP has already sold out. Luckily for us, One Thirty BPM has released the first track "Is David Bowie Dying?" on SoundCloud. It's quite obviously the Flaming Lips continuing the overtly radical and distorted sounds heard on their last album Embryonic, but there is definitely a note of gentler and more minimalist approaches that Neon Indian provides. It's a nifty track that I'm willing to just close my eyes to and tune out the rest of the world. If you ever have those kinds of Mondays, then that may be just what you need.
