I’ve previously described  Lima Research Society’s sound as a potpourri of influences from soft folk, to prog rock musical acrobatics, to trippy psychedelica, to new wave dance and all points in between. Their live show is an equally engaging and entertaining blend of musicianship and audience participation that is truly a lot of fun to witness, and has often earned them comparisons to bands like the Flaming Lips.
