As a follow up to 2020’s K.G., King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard return with L.W.—the second half of a double album recorded entirely in quarantine by each member of the sixtet.
Make no mistake: This is a complete and fully realized effort from the band, whose genre-bending foray into Latin and Indian beats perfectly platforms its love for distorted guitars. This album is proggy, it’s funky, it’s purple and yellow and a bubbling witches’ brew of certifiably fun music taking on very serious subjects, as King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard are want to do.
Concerns over climate change have made their way onto King Gizzard’s lyric sheet before and they arise again on L.W. This band has never taken their role as the bridge between psych rock and green metal for granted, and at this point the bridge is 8 miles wide. This is a good thing.
