I don’t even pretend to understand what’s going on with King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard.
The Australian experimental acid psych rockers (whatever else you want to call them) formed in 2010 and released their 9th record –Flying Microtonal Banana back in February. They will also release two (or maybe four) more records this year.
They’re prolific, that’s for sure and to date have released an album that is a narrated American Western story, an album comprised of four 10-minute jazz fusion tracks, and an acoustic ‘concept-less’ concept record.
Han-Tyumi & The Murder of the Universe is from their 10th due out this June.
Trying to understand is futile. It doesn’t matter, because this is a mind-blowing experience – 13 minutes of awesome crazy garage-psych-hard rock-jamming. So sit back an enjoy the ride.
