“While the moon sprays its fireworks in your hair”

imageI discovered The Flaming Lips pretty late. The band originated in 1983 and I hadn’t been exposed to them until the late 2000s. Their music is considered to be Psychedelic-Rock and they have even covered Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon. At War With the Mystics was released in 2006, and it was an anomaly in that it presented the material in a more traditional rock style. It won a Grammy award for “Best Rock Instrumental Performance.” This is an instrumental track called The Wizard Turns On.

With horns, drones, and guitars, Teeth of the Sea is more Psychedelic Rock than anything else, but fits into the Post-Rock space as well. The quartet hails from London and released their first record in 2009. Their unique approach to instrumental music leaves many reviewers grasping for metaphors when describing them. I’ll just leave my description as new, fresh, and exciting.
