The Flaming Lips: Ringing in Noise Pop's 20th year.

The final More additions to the lineup for Noise Pop's 20th Anniversary festival were released moments ago, and they were worth the wait: Topping the 2012 bill are the Flaming Lips -- who also played Noise Pop in '98, just before finding a second run of success with The Soft Bulletin, the album they'll be playing in full this year.

Also added were Sleigh Bells, the maximalist electro-pop outfit from Brooklyn whose debut album occupied many critics' Best of 2010 lists (including ours). These are two very exciting additions, but they aren't the only ones. Read on for the Noise Pop 2012 lineup so far -- and note that there are even more additions to come.
