King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard - Paper Mâché Dream Balloon

They're at it again. One thing that never changes with King Gizz is their psychedelic edge, and it keeps everything they touch ever so exciting. Their last album, Quarters!, found the Australian seven-piece delving into jazz, and this new album appears to be a foray into freak-beat folk music. The new single, "Paper Mâché Dream Balloon" sounds glorious and we can't wait to hear the whole album! (See the album art and track listing below)

The band also has a new website to promote the album and their upcoming tour.

After Mind Fuzz and Quarters I was starting to get over concept records. I wanted to make an album with a collection of short unrelated songs. I wanted to steer away from electric guitar music, which I feel like we’d explored pretty heavily on the last couple. So Paper Mache Dream Balloon, the concept-less concept album, got a concept.

No electric instruments, just acoustic guitars, flute, double bass, fiddle, harmonica, drum kit, clarinet. Whatever we could find really. We recorded it mostly in an empty shipping container on my parent’s farm in country Victoria. It was all horses, emus, and tim tams.
