Bizarre spectacle is the Flaming Lips’ calling card, and how lucky we are that they sometimes work their magic on broadcast television. On The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night, the Lips performed “There Should be Unicorns,” another psychedelic entry in their catalog with fantastic visuals to match. During the set the band wore capes and inflatable rainbow wings, and frontman Wayne Coyne mounted a unicorn.
Near the end, florescent light seemed to pulsate through the musicians and props onstage — do not adjust your dial.
“There Should be Unicorns” is from the Lips’ album Oczy Mlody, released fresh from interesting collaborations with Miley Cyrus.
