Happy Halloween! No doubt you're already having a very spook-tacular Monday morning, but if you're looking for an appropriately creepy/quirky/somewhat annoying soundtrack, we've got two great options. First, the Flaming Lips have once again found an insanely inconvenient vehicle for their music, posting a new song that runs for a full 24 hours and allowing only 999 listeners to hear it at once. (If you'd like to purchase the song, which comes in the form of a hard drive encased inside a human skull, it will only cost you $5,000.) If for some reason you're not able to hear this thing, just imagine a song that's "a song about death and it's a song about fucking and it's a song about life" running on an interminable loop of guitar fuzz, drum breaks, theremin squeaks, dog barks, horse whinnys, goldfish farts, and the occasional profundity from Wayne Coyne. (That's just an educated guess—we haven't heard it either.)
By comparison, David Lynch's forthcoming album, Crazy Clown Time, is an easily accessible and comprehensible work. But only by comparison. Though the track "Pinky's Dream" featuring Karen O is actually a pretty catchy goth-pop number. Crazy Clown Time will come out Nov. 8, but the album is currently streaming over at NPR.
