((King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard)) Band Profile and Upcoming New York City Concerts - Oh My Rockness

King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard

Written by Patrick McNamara

Come join King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard on a cosmic journey through space and time. Because this Melbourne band’s psych jams are gonna take you to Mars circa 3548, man. The band’s music sounds exactly like their name. And we could end this right here. Right now. You already know the goodness you’re about to stream at the bottom. But I’ll type a few more dynamically digital lines of copy. Because that’s why they pay me the $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

These seven dudes (Stu! Joe! Eric! Ambrose! Lucas! Cook! Michael!) create epic jam outs that pierce the midnight sky with an explosion of blue white transcendent musical heat. The colors, man. The colors. They're so beautiful! These shambling guitars partner up with the bass and drums, sitar and synths, and oh yeah even a goddamn Theremin (!) to create a great big sloppy mess of highly enlightened stoner core.

I told you this would be a trip, man. But it's also weirdly melodic too. As King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard play while you watch that cactus melt into the dust of the desert and the coyote with the face of your father barks at the moon (they'll have all those things on Mars by the time 3548 rolls around - trust me) you just might be tempted to howl right along to the madness.

Please now turn up your speakers and adjust your mind to high and enjoy this 16 minute track (well, 15:59 - sorry for exaggerating). It’s from a recently released 12”. But King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard (god I love typing that) have released other stuff too. They've been at it for years (what was 2010 even LIKE, man???) Just go here. You’ll figure it out. I can’t always be talking about the past on this thing. Everything must be new, new, NEW. That’s how we music blobs do.

In summation, King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard.
