Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (feat. My Morning Jacket, Fever the Ghost & J. Mascis)
Label: Warner Records
Every time you think Wayne Coyne can't possibly get weirder, he constantly dares himself, his band and those in his Rolodex to do bigger and stranger things. This time it means remaking Sgt. Pepper entirely, with a few guests on hand. "With a Little Help from My Friends" becomes an Auto-Tuned junkyard stomp that threatens to fly into Squarepusher hyperspace. Miley Cyrus' straight verses on "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" are fried by an electric-chair chorus, while Maynard James Keenan sings "Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite!" over phase-shifted slime that dissolves into twinkling harp.
