King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard’s ‘Sleep Drifter’ Is No Snooze
King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard recently announced their nefarious plot to release five full-lengths over the course of 2017. Flying Microtonal Banana, which arrives next month via ATO, is the first LP out of the gate: a clattering, distinctly Eastern-tinged record, if the previously-shared "Rattlesnake" and "Nuclear Fusion" provide any indication. Today, the Australian psych-garage band has unveiled "Sleep Drifter," another Eastern-influenced nugget off the upcoming record. Come for the slithering, impatient riffs; stay for the tabla-spiked interlude. Listen below.
Flying Microtonal Banana, the first of five new King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard LPs set to arrive in 2017, arrives Febuary 24 via ATO. Pre-order here.
