King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard - Fishing for Fishies LP (Toxic Landfill Vinyl Edition)ATO Records
Sit back and strap yourself in as seven-headed Aussie rock beast King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard return with Fishing for Fishies, perhaps their most perfectly-realized album to date. 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.
King Gizzard are no longer a band, they are a cult, a youth movement, an exploration, a double-drumming trip, a cottage industry centered around their own Flightless Records. Perhaps most importantly they provide transportive fun, a valuable and often-overlooked commodity in an increasingly fraught world. As Pitchfork noted, they have waged war against two tired clichés: “One, that rock is dead; and two, that the album is dead.” More than that, King Gizzard have staked their claim as one of the most innovative, exciting and productive bands of the 21st century.
The band triumphantly returns to the US this summer playing their largest shows ever including LA’s Greek Theatre and NYC’s Central Park SummerStage.
