If you haven’t heard the first three “released” songs from the not-so-distant-future Lips’ 2xLP Embryonic, then you best track them down. I was instantly thrilled to hear the Lips venturing into different sonic territory… I’d say we’re looking at a middle-ground between old Lips and new Lips (definitely more psychedelic and experimental than anything we’ve heard from the band in years) — and after the mediocrity of At War With the Mystics a change is certainly welcome.
After spending more than a week with these 3 songs, I’m excited as could be for the future album Embryonic. And even Schreiber is excited.
1. “Silver Trembling Hands”
2. “Convinced of the Hex”
3. “The Impulse”
