Album Notes

Paper Mâché Dream Balloon, is King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard’s seventh album. Like many of the world’s greatest artists, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard are one of the most difficult bands to pin down. The Australian-based septet constantly zig when you think they’re about to zag.
 
For their latest opus, they initially thought it was going to be filled with the darker, heavier material that the band has been playing live of late. But Mackenzie soon decided that it was time to put aside the longer, more conceptual pieces and go in a completely new direction. Hence, the band’s seventh album Paper Mâché Dream Balloon was recorded using nothing but acoustic instruments. The result is a lovely, lilting pop masterpiece that still evokes the same intoxicating exuberance as KGATLW’s most recent work, but with a more pastoral, communal feel to it.
 
“I think everyone knows what this band is about,” Mackenzie says. “I have always been afraid of being pigeonholed. The band personality is to try and do something that you wouldn’t expect.” Mission accomplished.
