King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard

Feels like King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard are words I've typed more than any other in the past couple of years, and as the rest of this country catches up to the Aussie band's catalog, they give them more reason to chase. Following on two albums from last year alone, they've already got an expansive EP lined up for the first half of 2015. Quarters plays to the bands more sun-faded soul approach, a side which I happen to enjoy. They recently played a hell of a show up by us in Upstate NY and leaned heavily on this portion of their catalog and with the right kind of day it hits harder than some of their fire and fuzz tracks ever do. The concept here is four songs, each ten minutes, ten seconds long. They bounce from jazz licks to blue-eyed soul and into tropical psychedelia. The results here aren't their most single ready tracks but definitely play out their live prowess, morphing styles and dragging the listener willingly along for the ride. If this is the kind of gem they use as a stopgap, I'm interested to see where the next exit takes them. But for now, it seems the seven-headed beast from the South Hemi has already made moves to make 2015 their own
