After spending the ’90s proselytizing on the uses of Vaseline (”She Don’t Use Jelly”) and the 2000s ? reinventing themselves as kindly freak-folk father figures (”Do You Realize??”), the graying Oklahomans have mutated once again. Their 12th album is a heady stew of fuzzed-out satellite trans-?missions (”Gemini Syringes”), jazzy spaz-outs (”Aquarius Sabotage”), and enthusiastic animal noises courtesy ? of Yeah Yeah Yeahs singer Karen O (”I Can Be a Frog”). Equal parts overwhelming and intoxicating, Embryonic is a trip worth taking. B
