The Flaming Lips appeared on Jimmy Fallon last night, and made it into their usual spectacle. They brought their whole stage set up with them, and performed (semi-naked) the song "Try To Explain" off of their new album The Terror. Wayne Coyne played Pictionary with Jimmy Fallon, Julie Bowen, Demi Lovato. For the Web exclusive, the Flaming Lips performed David Bowie's classic song "Heroes," which the band also released a video for earlier this week.

The Flaming Lips have been on a creative bender lately, releasing their album The Terror along with a whole series of videos that go with them. They have their "We Control The Controls" series of interview videos, in which the talk about the album song by song. They have the David Bowie cover of "Heroes" that was released this week, as well as videos for “Try To Explain” and “The Terror,” as well as an appearance on David Letterman.

Spacelab writer Corey Tate reviewed The Terror, saying "The Terror takes the awesomely big Flaming Lips persona and moves it firmly into new and more experimental territory ... they've moved to the dark side. It's not a downer, either ... they haven't removed any of the elements that made their music great over the years. The Terror is built on similar foundations to Yoshimi, The Soft Bulletin, any of the classics. The filter is different though, they've portrayed it in a completely different way." Read the whole review.
