iTunes Editors’ Notes

Carrying the torch passed on nearly 30 years ago by Australia's Scientists and Beasts of Bourbon (and before them by psych-rock progenitors like The 13th Floor Elevators and The Seeds), King Gizzard snakes and roils and undulates with sputtering, dirty harmonica, theremin(!), two drummers, and barbed, grinding guitars drenched in reverb and other effects. When it’s not burning down the garage with white-hot energy on feral tracks like “Danger $$$,” “Dead-Beat,” and “Stoned Mullet,” the group might turn out some candlelit, opiate-scented romance (“Let it Bleed”) or dabble in slightly more civilized, catchy tunes like the title track and “Black Tooth.” King Gizzard charms with its non-verbal vocal utterances, howling, whooping, and melodically hiccupping along with its silly lyrics. (“Dad says I’m not okay/because I never/brush my teeth!”) Mostly, though, the boys let loose with a bag of guitar tricks that range from delay and distortion to tunnels of howling feedback that should concern anyone with less girth than a van full of Marshall amps. Hold on, we warned you.

Customer Reviews

psychedelic garage rock explosion

King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard offer up their own brand of psychedelic garage rock with this release. The tunes are all super catchy and rockin and hold up well under repeated listens, especially Let it Bleed and the title track. Even though this is only 22 minutes long, for 4 bucks it's an incredible deal. If you like garage/psychedelic rock n roll you will love this.

Biography

Formed: 2011 in Melbourne, Australia

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '10s

Although they formed in 2011 in Melbourne, Australia, King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard's sense of unfettered sonic exploration makes them easy to mistake for a long-forgotten relic of the psych explosion of the '60s. With a far-out sound that, at times, feels barely held together, the band evoke the eclectic rock experimentation of Frank Zappa's early work with the Mothers of Invention as they follow their musical flights of fancy wherever they might go, and let the rest just fall into place...
