Earlier this summer when Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti toured with the Flaming Lips, Lips frontman Wayne Coyne thought it would be a fun idea to film the band playing “Round and Round” and make a video out of it. That might cause you to think, “Hey, those guys are kind of weird. I wonder what the video’s like.” Well, the whole thing starts with a pool of, according to Coyne, breast milk from 30 women. Ariel Pink dips his toes in it. So it’s pretty weird.
The video quality is pretty lackluster, but Pitchfork says that if you download the original file it will look a lot better. Personally, I think the homemade child porn aesthetic works. But that’s just me.
