7digital What we said: In the midst of recording the uplifting, musical love-in that was The Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends, Wayne Coyne and co were secretly retreating into a second studio in the wee small hours to commit their thirteenth studio album to tape. The Terror is the product of those nocturnal sessions and, as you can probably glean from the title, it’s not quite in keeping with their famously balloon-strewn, glitter cannon-powered live shows. Reportedly recorded in a “sleep walker’s dimension”, there’s an ominous atmosphere throughout, its dark, electronic soundscapes punctuated by lyrics detailing paranoia and fear. If that all sounds a little too bleak for you, you’ll be pleased to hear that it actually makes for strangely calming listening. Our standout track? The spaced-out melancholia of ‘Be Free, A Way’ is particularly beautiful.
