“The Sparrow Looks Up at the Machine” (Video)


    The Flaming Lips were at Bonnaroo this weekend, where they played two sets—one of regular Lips material, and one which showcased their entire album cover of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon. To follow this spate of activity, the band has released this video for “The Sparrow Looks Up at the Machine” from Embryonic.


    There’s a warning about disturbing material at the start of the video, and while it is somewhat NSFW, this colorful clip is barely in the same league as, say, a Girls promo clip. Familiar Lips visual themes surface throughout, including plenty of blood and a giant all-consuming vagina. That thing gets everywhere.
