The Flaming Lips- "Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots pt. 2"

The Flaming Lips

Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots

Warner Bros; 2002

This track is wild. "Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots pt. 2" comes off of The Flaming Lips' iconic LP Yoshimi Battles the Pink RobotsOk so far I have mentioned robots three times (this makes four), so you must be confused. I can only offer you the suggestion that frontman Wayne Coyne is an experimenter, a bizarre thinker, and a lover of oddities. But give this track a listen. Pounding bass riffs up and down the neck, electronic muffled splashes, and "hoots" and "hollers" create  a playful atmosphere. It doesn't sound serious, but can you really expect it to be given the title? High pitch squeals and chirps, the audible crowd begging for more, and the general frenzy put the listener in delirium. Whether you can rock your head to the pummeling and warped bass or just appreciate the distorted mania, "Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots pt. 2" is an amusing and noteworthy track.
