The Flaming Lips 'Smothered in Hugs' (Guided by Voices cover)
On Record Store Day (April 16), No More Fake Labels unveiled its long-awaited Guided by Voices tribute album, Sing for Your Meat. Back when the album was first announced, Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne posted a brief clip of him playing Bee Thousand classic "Smothered in Hugs." Now, we have the full version.

It's a ragged take on an already scruffy song, with jagged arpeggios backed by a trippy swirl of noise. The arrangement gets slightly more expansive throughout, with the atmospheric elements becoming more prominent.

Check it out below.

Thanks to Pretty Much Amazing for the heads-up.
