Electric Wurms - 'Musik, Die Schwer Zu Twerk'

Flaming Lips side project produces lightning fast trip through genres

Electric Wurms - 'Musik, Die Schwer Zu Twerk'

Album Info

  • Release Date: August 18, 2014
  • Label: Bella Union
7 / 10 The press release for Electric Würms’ debut sketches a fantastical mythology about super-acid, spaceships and sonic bibles, which ‘Musik, Die Schwer Zu Twerk’ purports to be a reading of. For the benefit of the more literal-minded, let’s just call it the product of Flaming Lips members Wayne Coyne and Steven Drozd combining with Nashville psych-rockers Linear Downfall to piece together the weirdest cosmic collage they possibly could. At 30 minutes long, the trip is brief, but it covers so much ground – from krautrock to prog-punk to ambient psych – it almost seems to move faster than light. And in case you were wondering about that title, it’s fucking impossible to twerk to.
