Some Halloween treats in the music bin today:
-- The Flaming Lips, ever determined to out gimmick themselves, have recorded a 24-hour song, "7 Skies H3" -- and are streaming it today (and streaming, and streaming...). The catch: For some reason, only 999 people can listen to it at once, so be prepared to wait and keep clicking. (While waiting, dive into their previous six-hour song here.) The song will be available for purchase, and comes delivered to you inside an actual human skull decorated with dripped chrome. Another catch: Only 13 are available, and each costs $5,000.
-- Superchunk, per a "tradition" they started last year, has released another Misfits cover today -- a free download of "Where Eagles Dare."
-- Dig the new zombie-themed video for Matt & Kim's "I'm a Goner." Wouldn't you know even after they die they still throw a fun, happy party ...
