KING GIZZARD & THE LIZARD WIZARD // PAPER MACHE DREAM BALLOON

I’m getting back into the groove of writing album reviews. This one is for all my friends who keep asking for new music!

If you’re unfamiliar with this oversized Aussie band, check out their other albums as well. You will find that their discography tells a story that they are not committed to one sound. King Gizz have produced albums that range from psych rock pop-esque to garage punk. This newest album is no exception to their lack of interest in committing to one identifiable, singular sound. The result is an acoustic, psych-folk album that transports me to 1968 every time I put it in my ears.

The band really embraced their new found freedom of their acoustic sound– managing to bring in just about every instrument under the sun. I haven’t heard this much flute on an album (and liked it) since Jethro Tull!

Top Tracks:

TrapDoor – This is as close to their previous albums as we’ll get on this album. Which, I’m not complaining about (though miss). This song puts me in a little bit of a trance and transports me in time.

The Bitter Boogie – Possibly my favorite track on the album. This song, while bluesy, reminds me of Woods and Thee Oh Sees. The harmonics are on point.

Time = $$$ – Beach psych folk rock. A musical unicorn if you ask me.
