King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard: Changes – album review
Louder Than War

“The discography of Australian sonic explorers King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard is littered with grand conceptual flourishes, ambitious schemes and missions often seemingly impossible. Be they reinventing the electric guitar to explore the outer reaches of Middle Eastern psychedelia, soundtracking climate change nightmares with blood-flecked thrash-metal, finding new possibilities within archaic synthesisers or composing the world’s first ever infinitely looping psych-prog mobius strip, the impossible seems something the Gizzards eat for breakfast”

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard share “Hate Dancin’” video from new album ‘Changes’
Brooklyn Vegan

This Friday, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard release Changes, their third album of October 2022 following Ice, Death, Planets, Lungs, Mushrooms And Lava and Laminated Denim. That will also be their fifth album of the year, not counting the remix album they dropped in January. They’ve just shared the video for “Hate Dancin'” from the album and it’s on the group’s poppier side. “I started writing a song about how I hate dancing, but then I realized that I love dancing,” says KG frontman Stu Mackenzie. The video has the band showing off their moves and you can watch that below.

“It was originally going to be the fifth album that we made in 2017,” the band’s Stu Mackenzie said in our recent KGLW cover story. “We had it locked in to be the fifth record. And we recorded what we thought was going to be the album in 2017. It just wasn’t fully realized at that time. We didn’t have the musical vocabulary to actually complete this idea.” On Changes, “we’re kind of flicking between key like every chord change on every song,” he explained. “It’s these two keys, and they shouldn’t be in tune with each other, basically. We’re sort of flicking between them the whole time.”

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard release new album ‘Laminated Denim’, announce 2023 Europe and UK tour

“King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard have released new album ‘Laminated Denim’, the second of three the ultra-prolific psych-rockers will share in October.

The album was released on Wednesday (October 12), and consists of two tracks – ‘The Land Before Timeland’ and ‘Hypertension’ – both of which are exactly 15 minutes in length. ‘Laminated Denim’ serves as a spiritual successor to earlier album ‘Made In Timeland’ (which its title is an anagram of), which was released physically in March of this year before arriving digitally yesterday alongside ‘Laminated Denim’ “

“King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard launched its new album, Laminated Denim, last night (Oct. 11) against the backdrop of two marathon three-hour performances at Red Rocks outside Denver. The vinyl (with an actual denim cover) was available early at the merch stand yesterday, and the music itself was debuted over the PA during each show’s intermission”

“Laminated Denim is an anagram of Made in Timeland, the album the ever-prolific psychedelic band released in March. Like that project, Laminated Denim is comprised of only two songs — “The Land Before Timeland” and “Hypertension” — that both run for exactly 15 minutes. To coincide with its release, King Gizzard have also uploaded Made in Timeland to streaming services for the first time”

“King Gizzard are very busy this month; in addition to being on tour in North America they’re releasing three albums in three weeks. Ice, Death, Planets, Lungs, Mushrooms and Lava was released last week, and now here’s Laminated Denim, the band’s 22 album in 10 years. They call this a “spiritual successor” to Made in Timeland from earlier this year — “Laminated Denim” is also an anagram of “Made in Timeland” — and it consists of two very jammy 15-minute songs, “The Land Before Timeland” and “Hypertension.”

The Wild, Wonderful world of King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard
Stereogum

“It also happens to be 10 years to the day since they released their first, 12 Bar Bruise. In the decade since that record’s fried echo-chamber psych-surf shenanigans, King Gizz have tried their hand at (among other things) a Spaghetti Western epic narrative, heady jazz fusion, dreamy psychedelic folk, prog-metal short stories, woozy soft rock, brain-melted boogie, charred primitivist thrash, panoramic synth-pop, and extensive experiments with microtonal composition — most of it merged seamlessly into the zany garage-punk jam-band vibe that has made them one of the most infectiously fun live acts in the world. They’ve also documented that concert experience via umpteen live albums and official bootlegs freely uploaded for their fans to download and distribute how they see fit. It’s a rare group that can convincingly blur the lines between Phish, Neu!, King Crimson, and the Osees while never sounding like anything less than themselves”

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard – “Iron Lung”
Stereogum

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard already shared “Ice V,” a 10-minute track that’ll appear on Ice, Death, Planets, Lungs, Mushrooms And Lava. Today, they’ve also shared the free-flowing nine-minute rave-up “Iron Lung.” It’s a percussive acid-rock explosion with some nice, sinuous riffage and a whole lot of guitar theatrics, and it sounds like the work of a fully locked-in jam band. In a press release, band member Stu Mackenzie says, “We wrote the lyrics as a group and created the music out of improvisation. Spontaneous creation. The best kind. And that’s why I’m proud of it. Hope you dig.”

Variety

King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard — longtime Desert Daze favorites who have grown to increasingly bigger stages and later time slots — exploded onto the Moon Stage for their headlining appearance. They blasted through selections from their hefty catalog like Stone Roses playing speed metal or Metallica on acid, while inflatable alligators were tossed around, and a skeleton on a stick and a skewered fuzzy worm were waved about by an enthusiastic crowd.

Forget the MCU, psychedelic rockers King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard created the ‘Gizzverse’
Los Angeles Times

Since 2011, the six-piece Aussie posse from Melbourne and surrounding areas has steadily amassed one of the largest and most diverse discographies in modern rock while cultivating an endearingly obsessed corner of Reddit with almost zero radio play. What started as psych-inflected surf rock on a pair of debut EPs has evolved into 20 full-length albums and bootlegs that span decades of sounds — garage, spaghetti-western, thrash metal, synth-pop, jam, krautrock, hip-hop — with a wailing harmonica and the occasional flute solo. Sometimes all on the same project.

Most of the time when a band announces new music, it’s maybe a song on an album, but the Australian mindfuck of a band King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard are not just any band.
