Just when you think you have King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard sussed they throw a curveball. Australia?s finest and most productive rock band have done this before, of course: while the world was still reeling from their 2014 breakthrough psych-punk masterpiece I?m In Your Mind Fuzz (2014) they casually released 2015?s expectation-confounding Paper Mâché Dream Balloon (2015), a pastoral, sun-drenched acid-folk album.
And now in the wake of two albums released in 2017 already, including most recently the dystopian end-times concept album Murder Of The Universe, which tackled in no uncertain terms the rise of robots and the downfall of mankind (and as such was the best since Jeff Wayne?s War Of The Worlds), comes an entirely altered beast. Sketches Of Brunswick East is a collaboration between King Gizzard and Mild High Club, the Los Angeles based tripster troupe led by Alex Brettin, who put out one of 2016?s deepest listens, Skiptracing. The two bands formed a strong friendship touring together throughout the USA, Europe, and Australia.
