Hear Miley Cyrus and the Flaming Lips' trippy 'Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds' cover

Pepper tribute album, With a Little Help From My Fwends, last month, more than a few feared Miley Cyrus would take a wrecking ball to her contribution, “Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds.” Now the Lips have released the track, which also features Moby, along with pre-ordering details.

Summer Music Preview: Hear indie-dance duo Phantogram's favorite summer songs

Phantogram’s blend of electronic rock, trip-hop and shoegaze dreaminess doesn’t sound like something you’d hear emanating from a barn in upstate New York, but that’s where the duo has written most of their music — at least when they’re not crashing with Olympic snowboarding champion Shaun White.

Now members Josh Carter and Sarah Barthel, who met in high school, will spend the summer in fields, festival stages, and other non-barn structures to promote their latest album Voices now through late August.

And to help inaugurate our Summer Music Preview, on stands today, they made a playlist for us featuring some of their favorite artists, from Beck and Bowie to Q-Tip and Kendrick Lamar. Stream it below: READ FULL STORY

Like an overwhelming number of the acts booked at SXSW, they are big enough to get booked on late-night TV but not quite big enough to be played on pop radio or fill larger venues. For a band like Phantogram, a solid showing at SXSW could mean an elevation to that next level. READ FULL STORY
