The times when King's Mouth sounds like classic Flaming Lips partly make up for the album's spotty narrative development and pacing.
Waste of Space Orchestra delivers an immaculately produced fusion of doom metal, psych and space rock, but the performances and compositions can be lackluster.
Fishing for Fishies is a fun and eco-friendly boogie rock odyssey.
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.
Dutch production duo Tunnelvisions come through with sprawling, psychedelic, and vaguely exotic breed of house music that I'm digging a lot. Looking forward to whatever else they're slated to drop later in the year.
Foxygen contributes a song inspired by '70s TV show themes to Amazon's upcoming American Girl special. As should be expected from the duo, notwithstanding Star Power, "Be Yourself" offers a bit of lavish psych pop and the best kind of nostalgia trip.
The new King Gizzard album, while not a thorough experiment in microtonal tuning, is a fun and intense psych rock experience.
