02. “Ice V”

02. “Hate Dancin’”
03. “Astroturf”
04. “No Body”
05. “Gondii”
06. “Exploding Suns”
07. “Short Change”

Stu Mackenzie said the following about “Ice, Death, Planets, Lungs, Mushrooms And Lava”:

“Naturally, each day’s jams had a different flavor, because each day was in a different scale and a different BPM. We’d walk into the studio, set everything up, get a rough tempo going and just jam. No preconceived ideas at all, no concepts, no songs. We’d jam for maybe 45 minutes, and then all swap instruments and start again.”

He also briefly commented on “Laminated Denim”:

“Laminated Denim is an anagram of Made In Timeland.”

Mackenzie then added the following about “Changes”:

“I think of Changes as a song-cycle. Every song is built around this one chord progression – every track is like a variation on a theme. But I don’t know if we had the musical vocabulary yet to complete the idea at that time. We recorded some of it then, including the version of “Exploding Suns” that’s on the finished album. But when the sessions were over, it just never felt done. It was like this idea that was in our heads, but we just couldn’t reach. We just didn’t know yet how to do what we wanted to do.”

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard Share In-Studio Performance Of “Blame It On The Weather”

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard Premiere “Kepler-22b” Video

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard have premiered a new video for their new song “Kepler-22b.” The track, which features a sample from Barney McAll‘s “Yemaya One,“ is from the band’s new album “Omnium Gatherum,” which will be released on April 22. Guitarist Cook Craig commented:

“I actually found Barney’s record at a store in New York. I hadn’t heard any of his stuff before, but I remember putting it on and being blown away straight up. I remember thinking damn this is literally a sampler’s dream, it also took me a while before I actually realised he was from Melbourne too. I guess it’s funny like that, sometimes you gotta travel half way around the world to discover an inspiring piece of music made by someone who probably lives on the same block as you.”

“You know when you have a really weird vivid dream and it sticks with you like glue? One day I came in to the studio and Stu was trying to write one of them down. He kept banging on about this paradise called Magenta Mountain that he had seen but none of us believed him.

Every day since then he’s been still trying to convince us all that it’s real and one day he will. We’re gonna get there, oh yes, we’re gonna get there. – Shrimp’s take on Magenta Mountain“

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard Premiere New Song “The Dripping Tap”

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard have premiered a new song titled “The Dripping Tap.” This track will appear on the band’s upcoming album “Omnium Gatherum.” Stu Mackenzie said the following about that effort:

“This recording session felt significant. Significant because it was the first time all six Gizzards had gotten together after an extraordinarily long time in lockdown. Significant because it produced the longest studio recording we’ve ever released. Significant because (I think) it’s going to change the way we write and record music – at least for a while… A turning point. A touchstone. I think we’re entering into our ‘jammy period’. It feels good.”
