The Flaming Lips have been in New York City this week, where they played two large scale shows, one in Central Park and another at Terminal 5. The band capped off the week’s activities in the city by playing David Letterman’s show last night, offering up this version of “See the Leaves” from Embryonic.
Wayne Coyne is in typically rambunctious form, thwacking a cymbal throughout and getting his cracked falsetto on in tandem with Steven Drozd. This is about as close as the Lips get to sounding like a traditional “rock” band these days, although anyone hankering after early material from the group is going to be out of luck on this current Embryonic-centric tour.
