A ‘Lynchian’ Party Soundtrack, Courtesy Wayne Coyne

Wayne Coyne has fronted the multi-Grammy winning psych-rock band The Flaming Lips since its inception in 1983. This week, he and the band joined up with Karen O, Donovan, and other rock stars for a concert celebrating the music of filmmaker David Lynch, to benefit the David Lynch Foundation. Coyne built us a playlist for the next time you have David over for dinner.
