The Flaming Lips have a new album called The Terror coming out this month, so of course this was a great morning to release a video for a song from their last album, the Bon Iver collab “Ashes In The Air” from last year’s all-collabs effort The Flaming Lips And Heady Fwends. And I don’t know how many multinational corporations are going to hire Wayne Coyne to appear in their commercials after this one. The clip tells the inspirational story of a spaceman with a Residents-esque glowing psychedelic eyeball head who (spoiler alert) murders a baby by feeding it through a meat grinder. Also, the baby has a singing grown-up’s face projected on its own face. The video also stars a bunch of ripped-open naked people and exposed brain matter. It’s not remotely safe for work, and I can’t really imagine any situation in which anybody might want to watch it. But if this sounds like the sort of thing that you need to experience on a Tuesday morning. -- Stereogum
