King Gizzard’s conglomerate discography racks up in comparison to a 15-year musical career. The Melbourne-based band is 6 years old with 13 records of fuzz-induced, Gong-influenced hyperactivity that plays with plenty of guitar arpeggios and refrains.
Their underlying rhythm stays true, but a distinction within each record can be found. Garage rock beginnings with surf rock in between, soft pools of warm honey caress you with sweet rock n’ roll ballads with a lot of flutes, and most recently a nod to Akron-proto-punk, disco, and Krautrock with their single “Cyboogie.”
It’s a funky contraption of sound much different than their last few albums of doom with a psychedelic jazz touch, but they still give it their own branding of wizardry and conceptual folly. Watch the video for “Cyboogie” for example, where lead singer Stu Mackenzie is being controlled by a synthesizer in an '80s B-Horror fashion. It's a reflection of themselves and an admirable artistry in all ranges of genre.
