Influences Under the Influence

The Flaming Lips are releasing an album covering The Beatles Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band with a little help from friends including Miley, Moby, Dr. Dog, My Morning Jacket, Phantogram and more. Imagine you have really only listened to this drug influenced album not under the influence of drugs for 47 years. Then take that baseline and reinterpret the album with an even more psychedelic tone. That is this album. Take a listen to With a Little Help From My Fwends yourself over at NPR First Listen.

In somewhat of the same vein, Primus is releasing an album reimagining the soundtrack to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory called “Primus & The Chocolate Factory With The Fungi Ensemble”. To promote it, they are hiding 5 golden tickets among the vinyl release for free tickets to any of their shows for life. Nothing to listen to yet except this album trailer:
