Album Notes

 
King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard are the most exciting head-spinning, third-eye opening, double-drumming goddamn rock ‘n’ roll band on the planet. Following the frazzled freakbeat of 2016’s Nonagon Infinity, the endlessly inventive septet return in 2017 with the new album Flying Microtonal Banana, their ninth studio album in five years, and the first of five-count planned new albums to be recorded and released in 2017 and beyond.
 
Flying Microtonal Banana marks another shift in sound as King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard drive deep into trance-inducing drones, inventive jazz flourishes, non-Western musical scales and metronomic rhythms that motor along like a well-oiled engine. So unique and evolved is the album’s sound that it necessitated a total reinvention of the band’s instruments after they began experimenting with a custom microtonal guitar made for frontman Stu Mackenzie.
