[pitchfork.com] The video for the Flaming Lips' damaged six-minute Embryonic psych jam "Powerless" involves a girl tied to a chair and a curious monkey. It starts out tense and drawn-out like Once Upon a Time in the West, and then it turns completely inexplicable like Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me. Lips frontman Wayne Coyne co-directs, alongside longtime Lips visuals guy George Salisbury. Watch the video HERE.
And speaking of brain-expanding Flaming Lips activities, the band will perform on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" this Friday, April 16. They'll play a song from their full-length cover of Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon together with Stardeath & The White Dwarfs. That's the day before Record Store Day, when that full-length Dark Side cover comes out on limited-edition vinyl.
