[filtermagazine.com] The Flaming Lips performed a rendition of "I Can Be a Frog" for a program called "The Black Cab Sessions." This program is an online series where artists play songs while sitting in the back of this British taxi. Get it?
The psych-rockers used everyone in the cab including the driver to lend a hand in this performance. Check it out below!
The actual version of "I Can Be a Frog" is from the Flaming Lips' album, Embryonic, out now.

[pitchfork.com] Last week, Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne posted an intriguing shard of info on his Twitter: "Spent the morning recording some singing for Guided by Voices tribute record." He also posted this video, an extreme close-up of his own mouth singing GBV's Bee Thousand song "Smothered in Hugs". And today, we got the confirmation: There is a Guided by Voices tribute album on the way, and the Flaming Lips will be on it.
At the moment, there's not too much info on the comp, but No More Fake Labels plans to release it early in 2011. The album is currently about 80% done, and it will also feature a contribution from Western Civ and a collaboration from Buffalo Killers and the Breeders' Kelley Deal.
