The Flaming Lips / Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots


Taken in context of the megalith album, “Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots” by The Flaming Lips, it’s an optimistic stance in the face of a post-apocalyptic robot dawn in which the end of humanity looms inevitably on the horizon.  Taken out of context, it is a simple yet profound look at the season that has been the spark of inspiration for countless artists through time.  It invites the listener to turn away from the dark, introspective nature of winter that often leads to despair, and instead to direct psychic energy outward toward infinite possibility.  Look outside!  It’s summertime!
