How About A 6-Hour Flaming Lips Stream?

If you can’t drive out
to Portland to
buy the new artifact, a stream’ll have to do…

It’s been a busy day for music news, and among the top
stories today: The Flaming Lips unveiled a six-hour song called “I Found A
Star on the Ground.” Thanks to Pitchfork for the tip – as they noted
previously
, it’s a benefit project for the Central Oklahoma Humane Society and the Academy of Contemporary Music at the
University of Central Oklahoma
, with the idea being that if you were
willing to donate $100 to the cause, you would get a shoutout of your name
someplace in the lyrics.

 

So indeed, yesterday Lips mainman Wayne Coyne arrived at
Portland’s Jackpot Records with the single-box-thing (including a “Strobo Trip”
toy), where it’s apparently for sale exclusively. Here’s what it all looks
like:

 

 

And meanwhile, some enterprising Lips fans at the Slow Nerve
Action
fan blog have posted the material in a trifecta of 2-hour SoundCloud
streams
. If you’ve got six hours, available, toke up, kick back and dig it.
There’s also a pretty interesting forum thread on the “I Found A Star” single
detailing the names that have been spotted thus far in the song… See if you can
find your friends!
