King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard - I'm In Your Mind Fuzz

New MusicContributor JonesComment

Australia really seems to be producing some of the world’s top modern psychedelic rock bands these days, and in the spotlight this week is I’m In Your Mind Fuzz by King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard, which may be one of the year’s most foot-tapping, head-nodding psychedelic rock albums - especially when compared to Oddments, the group's previous effort released earlier this year, which wasn’t anywhere near as catchy. With fast paced singles like “Cellophane” and the band's distinct sound comprised of wavy off-kilter vocals and synth leads, propulsive old-school drumming, myriad harmonica solos, and a bit of sitar, King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard might not be making groundbreaking music exactly, but they've certainly delivered one of the grooviest weirdo albums of the year.
