Stream King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard's New Album 'Sketches Of Brunswick East'

Friday 18th August, 2017 3:42PM

At the beginning of the year Aussie psych-rock powerhouse King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard announced their ambitious plan to release five albums over 2017 and their well on the way having just dropped their third album this year, Sketches Of Brunswick East. Following on from Flying Microtonal Banana and Murder of the Universe, the new record is an almost subdued affair which was made in collaboration with Los Angeles outfit Mild High Club. Speaking about the collab, King Giz frontman Stu Mackenzie said:

“I think we hit it off because our approaches are very different...yet similar... Alex {Brettin, of Mild High Club] has studied music, whereas my approach is to fling shit at the wall and see what sticks. I can’t read music at all. But we’re like the two ends of a horseshoe coming to meet in the middle. We always talked about working together and after Gizzfest* last year I said to Alex ‘Why not stick around and make a record?’ So he stayed at my house for three weeks and most days were spent in the studio making music with the rest of the guys. Jazz seeped into it, and we were listening to compilations of Ethiopian music form the 1960s and 70s a lot. It was in no way thought-out though. If Murder Of The Universe was our most conceptual and arranged album - then Sketches... is the exact opposite.”
