Flaming-lips-karen-o_l Oh, the things you learn from Swiss websites! Especially when said website features an interview with the Flaming Lips’ Wayne Coyne that the entire indie-schmindie blogosphere instantly syndicates!

To hear from the horse’s mouth that Karen O and the already very busy MGMT will be guesting on Lips’ upcoming Embryonic, You can listen to the audio interview here, or just read this direct quote:

“We have MGMT doing a song with us,” says Coyne, “and we have Karen O from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs doing a couple songs with us,” said Wayne. “For the Karen O tracks, I just called her up in her hotel room and we just did it right over the telephone. It’s pretty absurd.”

This, coming from a guy who knows from absurd. For real. Music Mixers, are you ready for December 29, Embryonic‘s slated release date? Can you already taste the cramazing sonic rainbow?
