Steven Drozd — The Heart Is a Drum Machine

A Flaming Lip goes solo for soundtrack work


Indie

Stephen Carradini
The Flaming Lips are incredibly self-contained; the members rarely do side projects. So it’s with great interest that multi-instrumentalist Steven Drozd’s score for the music documentary “The Heart Is a Drum Machine” appears.

Blame it on the rain (and wind)

Wet lips.

If you thought twice before heading up the turnpike to catch The Flaming Lips and Primus in T-Town, you didn’t miss much besides one hellacious storm and $800,000 in equipment damage, according to Billboard.com.

VOTD: Local post-Christmas roundup

Holiday hangover edition.

What with last week’s 2011 retrospective, the holiday season and all, I’ve recently lagged behind in posting local music videos. Important lesson learned: It’s dangerous falling back of OKC’s creative folk, as they just continue to pump new stuff out by the hour.


For starters, Delo Creative (the dudes behind Change Yr Life OKC) have a new series they’ve dubbed “Be Nice to Your Kids” (BNTYK, for short), which they christened with a pair of videos of The Boom Bang playing in a dirty men’s room. For whatever reason, it just makes sense. Watch “Vietnomnomnom” and “Sugar Ray Romano” below.





More exciting though are these two energetic vids from post-punk-rockers Chud, who cover themselves in glowing paint while they tear through “Handsome Vampires” and “Control, Alt, Complete.” Something shatters near the end of the latter song. What it is, who knows? Check back soon for a BNTYK session with Gentle Ghost.





Also, I’d be remiss to neglect this nutso Flaming Lips cover of John Lennon’s nutso classic “I Am the Walrus,” also shot by Delo. NYE is coming, folks, and rumors abound of Beatles covers for the visiting Mrs. Ono. Watch Steven Drozd completely lose his mind, below.



If you missed this ridiculous Zane LaRue-shot Chrome Pony video for “Christmas Babes,” his contribution to the Blackwatch Christmas album, then I pity you.



Also, Nathan Poppe snuck into Blackwatch Studios to do this simple, elegant one-shot of Beau Jennings covering Woody Guthrie’s lone Christmas song, assisted by the awesomely-bearded Daniel Foulks. This winsome beauty’s called “1913 Massacre” and it makes “Blue Christmas” sound about as happy as “Super Bass.”
