Sometimes less is more, except when it comes to King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard.
We thought that dropping four albums in one year was too much even for the Melbourne lads, but they’ve gone and proved us wrong.
Their fourth of 2017, POLYGONDWANALAND, will be released in full, for free, tomorrow on Spotify and on their website. If that isn’t good news for Gizz fans, then I don’t know what is. POLYGONDWANALAND follows records Flying Microtonal Banana, Murder of the Universe, and joint LP Sketches of Brunswick East.
Not only are they dishing out their latest release for free, King Gizz posted on their Instagram yesterday that digital, CD and vinyl masters, as well as downloadable artwork, will be at your disposable:
“Ever wanted to start your own record label? GO for it! Employ your mates, press wax, pack boxes. We do not own this record. You do. Go forth, share, enjoy. P.s. If u wanna make cassettes I don’t really know what you would do. Be creative. We did it once but it sounded really shit. Maybe try the WAVs idano bye bye.”
Aside from the album deluge of ’17, the laziest band in Aus music are also back with the third year of their nation-wide festival Gizzfest, with a lineup that includes Kikagaku Moyo, La Luz, The Murlocs, ORB, Amyl & The Sniffers, The Dandelion, Leah Senior and Parsnip. God bless The Gizz.
