The ability to surprise is a valuable commodity, one too often in short supply. Enter King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, combining one of the best names in music with a prodigious work ethic and an unerring knack for leftfield diversions. More

After a year-long "hiatus," King Gizzard & The Wizard Lizard are back and stronger than ever, with their fourteenth album in half as many years.

One of the most interesting aspects of Melbourne, Australia's King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard is how a seven-piece ensemble manages to produce such winning sounds by effortlessly employing restraint rather than overkill. And with Paper Mâché Dream Balloon being their seventh album (along with a couple of EPs) in less than five years, they have things down to a psych-pop/rock science. More
