Just when you think you have King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard sussed they throw a curveball - in the wake of two albums released in 2017 already, including most recently the dystopian end-times concept album ‘Murder Of The Universe’, which tackled in no uncertain terms the rise of robots and the downfall of mankind, comes ‘Sketches Of Brunswick East’, an entirely altered beast.

‘Sketches Of Brunswick East’ is a collaboration between King Gizzard and Mild High Club, the Los Angeles based tripster troupe signed to Stones Throw Records and led by Alex Brettin - the two bands formed a strong friendship touring together throughout the USA, Europe and Australia.

The title could be perceived as both a knowing nod towards Miles Davis’s ‘Sketches Of Spain’ and the sketchy on-the-hop, improvised nature of its creation by these gnarly and feral Aussie dudes. It also sees the band further exploring the Tropicalia element only ever previously hinted at. Stu explains that a change of pace and tempo was necessary after “a concurrent period of productivity, a ball of energy and ideas.” LP format features rigid ‘tip on’ sleeve and heavyweight vinyl with digital download code.
