Flaming Lips Perform Live “Watching the Planets” on The Tonight Show

The Flaming Lips played Embryonic album-closer “Watching the Planets” on Conan last night, and goddamn, it was very good. Listening to the record, I find myself slightly bothered by how low the vocals sit in the mix, but in a live setting, when you can see first-hand how much crazy shit is going on, it’s far less irksome, and in fact winds up seeming like a brilliant production choice.
