Fishing For Fishies - Lilypad Edition

    The seven-headed Aussie rock beast King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard return with ‘Fishing For Fishies’, perhaps their most perfectly-realised album to date. The Lilypad Edition has been pressed an Aqua Marble after the first pressing quickly sold out. Released on the band’s own Flightless Records, here is a world where the organic meets the automated; where the rustic meets the robotic. Where the past and future collide in the beautiful present.

    The fourteenth album since their 2012 debut - and their first following the release of five vastly different albums in 2017 - ‘Fishing For Fishies’ is a blues-infused blast of sonic boogie that struts and shimmies through several moods and terrains. From the soft shuffle Outback country of the opening title track through the sunny easy listening of ‘The Bird Song’ (think a lysergically-soaked Laurel Canyon circa 1973) and on through the party funk of ‘Plastic Boogie’ (which somehow summons the spirit of Stevie Wonder’s ‘Innervisions’) the road-trucking, Doors-like highway rock of ‘The Cruel Millennial’ and ‘Real’s Not Real’ - what Carpenters might have sounded like had they existed entirely on vegemite and weed - it’s a dizzying, dazzling display which addresses a number of pertinent environmental issues along the way.

    “We tried to make a blues record,” says frontman Stu Mackenzie. “A blues-boogie-shuffle-kinda-thing, but the songs kept fighting it - or maybe it was us fighting them. Ultimately though we let the songs guide us this time; we let them have their own personalities and forge their own path. Paths of light, paths of darkness. This is a collection of songs that went on wild journeys of transformation.”

    Quiet though it was on the record front, 2018 was hardly a year of rest - almost in perpetual motion, they continued their unstoppable rise as their juggernaut of a live show grew and grew and grew, with a mind-blowing headline slot at last year’s Green Man Festival, a massive sold-out US tour in the summer which saw them play their biggest venues to date, a brain-frying sold out Brixton Academy show, two gigs in Russia and Istanbul where they played in front of over 15,000 people and putting on the fourth edition of their annual Gizzfest in Melbourne amongst the highlights.

    Stonefield

    Bent

      Australian, psych-rock luminaries Stonefield announce their new album, ‘Bent’, via Flightless Records. Produced by Joe Walker and Stu Mackenzie of King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard, the album was recorded in-between tours in just five days. Written largely on the road, the songs on ‘Bent’ are filled with reference and reflection - the kind that comes from months spent far from home, living on four wheels. The surreal isolation of trudging through white-out snow and snaking down deserted highways served as the perfect backdrop for the band to look inward. “It’s a culmination of experiences, emotions, and stories collected over time,” explains lead singer and drummer Amy Findlay, “A growth of honest, raw, energy that has been burning within us and waiting for its moment.”

      ‘Sleep’ opens the album with guitars covered in five inches of sludge and distortion and something that sounds like a far-off siren, or the high-pitched howling of the wind. It serves as a warning, a call to arms, kicking things off with a next-level version of the massive, unholy racket the band has become known for over the course of their last three albums. “‘Sleep’ was inspired by the concept of floating in the in- between,” explains Findlay. “An ode to the darkness of not wanting to cross to the other side.”
