The Flaming Lips release USB compilation in chocolate hearts
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that anything The Flaming Lips come up with is so extravagantly creative it'll blow your mind, but this latest offering from Wayne Coyne and co. is quite literally, delicious. To celebrate Valentines Day the band have teamed up with Dallas based choclatiers, Dude, Sweet Chocolate to encase USB compilations inside these "anatomically correct" chocolate hearts (pictured above).
Featuring both old and new tracks from the psyche-pop supremos, the packages are all sold out now but you can check out the tracklisting below, including the Stardeath and White Dwarves produced 'Love is Mind Control' and a cover of the Beatles classic, 'All You Need Is Love'.
Also check out this video of Coyne tucking into some of the cardiac confectionary made from "72% South American dark chocolate studded with hazelnut mini whoppers and waffle cone crunch."

This year three senior members of The 405 headed out on an adventure to Green Man Festival in Wales. Being the first time any of us had been to the festival, we were interested in finding out why so many people had suggested we took the 3-4 hour car journey. Yes we had rain and yes we had the fear of our tents failing on us when we needed them the most, but this isn't a weather review website, it's a music & art one and when it came down to those elements, Green Man had it all...
