The Flaming Lips have always played around with sly dichotomies of sound and meaning, seeking out things like the chilly implications of sunshine, the anxieties underpinning love, or the dangerous delights of the imagination, and embodying these emotional dialectics in music just as sweetly ominous.On The Terror, their last album, that balance was slightly out of kilter, resulting in a more harrowing journey than usual; but with Oczy Mlody, they’ve relocated a space closer to the happy place of Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots, with fear and sadness couched within a fantastical menagerie of unicorns and edible butterflies and frogs with demon eyes, while heavily medicated music simultaneously soothes and soars. It’s a lovely, silly, serious work that draws one in despite the bursts of utopian cosmo-babble.
