The seven-headed Aussie rock beast King Gizzard and 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.
