King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard: “If something is shit and no one likes it, you just put out another one the next month”

“The band’s North American tour is a breathtaking live comeback for them, even by Gizz standards. In just over a month, they’ll play a headline set at Desert Daze; four marathon three-hour sets, three of them at the picturesque Red Rocks amphitheatre; and a stadium show in New York supported by Black Midi, Leah Senior and Jonathan Toubin”

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’ “

NME reviews Ty Segall’s “Ty Segall”

“…cranky garage rock, experimental psych pop, nu glam, neo country and music he himself has described as “Satan in space” – Segall’s been all over the nether regions of alternative music.”

NME shares Mac DeMarco’s cover of “White Christmas”

The Canadian artist quietly released his own version of Irving Berlin and Bing Crosby’s Chirstmas standard, titled ‘White Chirstma$’, on Boxing Day, writing “Twas the season” in a caption accompanying the video. The artwork for the track is a photo of Star Wars character Jar Jar Binks wearing a Santa hat.

NME reviews Ty Segall’s “Ty Rex”

“‘Ty Rex’ is a set of Bolan covers by Segall that brings together two out-of-print Record Store Day releases, a 12-inch from 2011 and a seven-inch from 2013, with the addition of a previously unreleased take on ’20th Century Boy’ – a gritty rendition that darts along with hardcore intensity…”

NME reviews Fuzz’s “II”

“Louder, darker and half an hour longer than 2013’s self-titled debut, the double-album depicts a society numbed by its own emptiness; a world where people can’t think for themselves. You can hear it in the combative frustration behind ‘Red Flag’ (“Seen the secrets of your wasteland/Open up, I’ll make you face them”) and the flashes of fatalism in songs like ‘New Flesh’ (“Feel no pain, feel no sadness/In this world where living is lifeless”)…”
