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.

VOTD: The Flaming Lips / Lightning Bolt — ‘I’m Working at NASA on Acid’

Considerably less terrifying than their previous collab, “I Wanna Get High, But I Don’t Want Brain Damage”

I’m really digging the damaged vein the Lips seemed to have slipped into these last couple of years. 2009’s “Embryonic” was the freaky, border-pushing, psychedelic album they’ve always had in them, but were too busy having fun with sci-fi sing-alongs like “Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots” to record.

Anyhoo, check out this new clip from George Salisbury and his Delo Creative http://delocreative.com/nasa-on-acid/ dudes. It’s a really long song, but the Lightning Bolt choral part in the middle is really wonderful. Salisbury does well to represent on video the destructive energy of actually seeing Lightning Bolt perform in person.
