Yoshimi Battles the Hip-Hop Robots

Grrr… I’m still listening to The Flaming Lips constantly.

After checking out a few articles, I stumbled across Yoshimi Battles the Hip-Hop Robots by The Kleptones, known for this and other mashups.

Yoshimi Battles the Hip-Hop Robots is a 2003 bastard pop album by The Kleptones. It combines instrumental tracks from The Flaming Lips’ Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots with vocal tracks from various rap songs.

I’ve been listening to it all evening. It’s fun, weird, disturbing… needs more listening.

Flaming Lips – All We Have Is Now

I listened to The Flaming Lips all day today. It was a perfect day to do so, as it was overcast and I was sleepy. This is my “jam” right now.

As logic stands you couldn’t meet a man
Who’s from the future
But logic broke as he appeared he spoke
About the future
“We’re not gonna make it”
He explained how the end will come –
“You and me
Were never meant to be
Part of the future”
