King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard - Flying Microtonal Banana

King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard announce details of their new album 'Flying Microtonal Banana.'

Out via Heavenly Recordings on February 24th, 2017.

This version is now the standard black vinyl pressing

Geelong’s insuppressible King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard have not only announced the release of their next album, 'Flying Microtonal Banana,' but also the release of FOUR further albums in 2017.

Already known for their prodigious work-ethic, the band will then release a further four albums in 2017 - details of which will be announced in due course.

Talking about the making of 'Flying Microtonal Banana', Eric Moore of the band said:

Earlier this year we started experimenting with a custom microtonal guitar our friend Zak made for Stu. The guitar was modified to play in 24-TET tuning and could only be played with other microtonal instruments. We ended up giving everyone a budget of $200 to buy instruments and turn them microtonal. The record features the modified electric guitars, basses, keyboards and harmonica as well as a Turkish horn called a Zurna.

Shimmering, hypnotic and propulsive and powered along, as ever, by the metronomic beat of two drummers, Flying Microtonal Banana takes a subtle musical shift away from the frazzled freak-beat of its predecessor, Nonagon Infinity which was released earlier this year. Trance like, in parts clipped and concise yet deeply psychedelic, it reveals yet another musical side to a band seemingly in perpetual motion.

The band have released the first single Rattlesnake and you can watch the video here:

Reviews

“These floaty psych-funk grooves are more fun than a barrel of chimps, even if the lyrics fret about global warming, nuclear fusion and other harbingers of doom. Seem’s they’re trying to make as much music as possible before the world ends.”
– Record Collector ★★★★

“Rich, imaginative, and more than a little strange.”
– DIY ★★★★

“Top banana!” - Shingdig ★★★★
