How You Feeling about King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard?

kingYou know, I’m not real sure how I feel about it all either. I mean, first, there’s the name: King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard…some things can go too far.  But, I put that aside and really sat down with their most recent tune, and this one I feel like I can get behind.  There’s all sorts of musical movement in and out for the Aussie act; they settle into a nice bit of a groove then allow themselves to really immerse you inside that groove.  You can’t escape until the song ends, so perhaps that’s the power of the Lizard Wizard.  Look for the band’s LP, I’m In Your Mind Fuzz, via Castle Face Records on November 11th.
