LOVE RECORD STORES EXCLUSIVE - LP RECYCLED ECOMIX VINYL

Geelong's insuppressible King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard release their new album Flying Microtonal Banana on Heavenly Recordings - the first of FIVE(!) albums they're set to release in 2017.

Talking about the making of Flying Microtonal Banana, Eric Moore says: "Earlier this year we started experimenting with a custom microtonal guitar our friend Zak made for Stu. The guitar was modified to play in 24TET tuning and could only be played with other microtonal instruments. We ended up giving everyone a budget of $200 to buy instruments and turn them microtonal. The record features the modified electric guitars, basses, keyboards and harmonica as well as a Turkish horn called a Zurna."

Shimmering, hypnotic and propulsive and powered along, as ever, by the metronomic beat of two drummers, Flying Microtonal Banana takes a subtle musical shift away from the frazzled freak-beat of its predecessor, Nonagon Infinity. Trance like, in parts clipped and concise yet deeply psychedelic, it reveals yet another musical side to a band seemingly in perpetual motion.
