UPDATED: Collaboration album between The Flaming Lips and Neon Indian is available at Good Records
They'll be gone in a matter of minutes, we think.
DALLAS Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips will be at Good Records Thursday night at 7 p.m. to promote his new vinyl 12” with Alan Palomo of Neon Indian. Good Records is the third store in the country to have the album; it was first distributed on Wednesday to Guestroom Records in Norman and Oklahoma City, Okla.
Coyne is physically driving the albums from Oklahoma to Texas. “However many he gets done, that's how many he's bringing,” said Chris Penn, co-owner of Good Records.
The album is a collaboration between The Flaming Lips and Palomo and was recorded at Tarbox Road Studio in upstate New York (and at Coyne's house, according to the vinyl jacket). The vinyl was pressed in Dallas at A&R Records.
After the records are all sold at Good Records, Coyne will hang out at the store and sign albums for those who are interested.
The album costs $14.99, and each album is different. The vinyl is colored because they were able to “throw colors in” as the vinyl was being pressed. Check out video of the covers being taped together here.
UPDATE: According to the blog Psych Explorations of the Future Heart, the album can be ordered from Good Records online or by phone -- 214-752-4663 -- for those not in Texas or near Oklahoma City. "Wider distribution is rumoured, though no official details have been released. There’s also no word on a digital release, but we’ll see …" the blog says.
