The Flaming Lips And Heady Fwends - Record Store Day Limited Edition Release

Of all the albums and special prints released on Record Store Day, The Flaming Lips And Heady Fwends was by far one of the most anticipated. Teaming up with pretty much every dream combination of musicians that you could imagine, including the likes of Edward Sharpe, Nick Cave, Jim James, Chris Martin, Bon Iver, Erykah Badu and even the unusual pairings of Biz Markie and Yoko Ono, this album was aimed to please every single audiophile on the planet. Each and every track is laid out in a dream-like scenario that appears almost outer worldly and is just so soothing on the soul. If you were one of the lucky few who had the opportunity to grab one of these limited edition high-quality, multi-color vinyl discs, I assure you will be the epitome of envy to all who were unable to accomplish this same feat. If you were unable to make this purchase, below you can get a little sampling of the heavenly collaboration that is Heady Fwends. So give "Helping The Retarded to Find God" featuring Edward Sharpe, "I Don't Want You To Die" featuring Chris Martin of Coldplay, and "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" featuring Erykah Badu a listen below.
