King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard
King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard = Thee Oh Sees / The Murlocs
Quarters! is a conceptual jazz album from Australian seven-piece, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, whose known for their face-melting psych that's unpredictably groovy. Quarters! finds the band hitting their stride by exploring cosmic rhythms and toning down their usual noise and wrecklessness. This change elevates the band from trippy to spiritual through four 10-minute songs with plenty of breathing room. “The River” features Santana-esque riffing and jazz drumming that stimulate the mind right into the mellow launch pad of “Infiinte Rise”. And while “The River” features one of King Gizz’s better hooks, nothing compares to the brightness and ease of “God Is In The Rhythm”. It’s their best song to date and a testament that these scallywags just keep getting better.
