King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard - The Lord of Lightning Vs. Balrog

New Musictheneedledrop1 Comment

In lieu of a mere single, here is the entire second chapter of King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard's three-chapter concept album Murder of the Universe. This will be the psych rock experimentalists' second album of 2017, following the great Flying Microtonal Banana, and the 'gimmick' this time around is the addition of a spoken word narrative to the mix. I'm not sure the band's gonna meet their goal of five albums this year, but so far I think they're pacing themselves well and are finding interesting ways to keep their sound fresh and fun.

Murder of the Universe drops June 23 via Heavenly.

Julianna Barwick - "Pacing"

New MusicNicholas KindrachukComment

Julianna Barwick definitely knows how to create an atmosphere with her music that is absolutely heavenly.

As with all of the music she produces "Pacing" makes me feel as though I am going to start floating at any moment. Whisking me away to a place where I am floating through the clouds or rather resting upon them like they are individual fluffy pillows. This is analogy may have gone a bit too far, but this track brings it out with its warm acoustics and piano. Not to mention the soft sung background vocals for the added texture. All-in-all this is yet another enchanting song from Barwick.

There is a limited edition 7" available on Suicide Squeeze so go jump on that!
