Flaming Lips Will Always Negate Defeat

Flaming Lips - The W.A.N.D. (mp3)

This is a stellar new track from the Flaming Lips' upcoming At War With the Mystics (out April 4th). The updated sound continues with expected heavy instrumentation, strange grandiose lyrics, and driving bass. W.A.N.D. (Will Always Negates Defeat) carries on the tradition of inspiring an allegorical underdog (cue Wayne's fist gloves) through a series of intergalactic challenges. But who are these "Mystics" that the Lips keep waging war against? The dictionary
defines a "Mystic" as someone who believes in the existence of realities beyond human comprehension; having an import not apparent to the senses nor obvious to the intelligence; beyond ordinary understanding; the use of "mysterious symbols". The beauty of a musical metaphor is that it could be about anyone. Join in the latest battle without enrolling by picking up a copy locally (Strictly Discs or B-Side in Madison).
