King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard – “Fishing For Fishes”

Album number 14 for Australia’s finest psychedelic rock merchants, with a slight focus on more blues/boogie/country-based material…or that’s how it was planned.
“We tried to make a blues record,” says frontman Stu Mackenzie. “A blues-boogie-shuffle-
kinda-thing, but the songs kept fighting it – or maybe it was us fighting them. Ultimately
though we let the songs guide us this time; we let them have their own personalities and
forge their own path. Paths of light, paths of darkness. This is a collection of songs that
went on wild journeys of transformation.”
