Chart.
King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard Nonagon Infinity
The mucho-mentioned album-as-undisturbed-loop is novel and nice, but a plain ol' propensity for breakneck psych-drenched propulsion is nicer -- they straddle the line between firm and feral, goofy and gung-ho, fun and formidable; convincingly conjuring up images of fig wasps+people vultures and continuing to command attention through the flashes of deja vu and jerky-groove change-ups that serve as calm-downs from all that buzzy racket. Oh right, the hooks and the howling; very vital as well.

Lone Levitate
Incessant hyperactivity and luminous melodies and sparkling spacy joviality make this an immediate grabber, and a vibe-filled breeze-out starring a heartbroken semi-stalker as an interludial breath-of-air is always a charmer too. Admirable beat-layering meticulosity and mood-swelling capabilities no doubt, but digging past the swiftness-n-swooshes tends to expose a sense of vapidity obscured by all that benevolent and dancy birr. Could just be skilled+smooth treading into sterile, or that sampled hook stating "our style is the craziest" when it kinda just sounds old hat -- but eh, why dig?

The title's self-questioning has apparently been answered with the unveiling of a seven-piece electronic supergroup who are particularly proficient in the domain of drum&bass; so when it feels jumbled perhaps therein lies a reason, but when they customarily cook up quality compositions that are dynamic+frantic+exploratory it comes as no surprise and everything's gonna be alright. Pop-ups spots from thick-Brit-accented MCs are accommodated awesomely, it generally encourages bustin' a move (albeit quite the accelerated bustin') yet the spacier dabbles are worthy as well, plus heavy and/or wacky intricacy kinda never ceases. As anticipated from

  • qwe3 you really manage to capture the essence of albums in them mate, so if you could translate that to reviews i'm sure you'd be one of the better reviewers on the site. which i'm told is a big deal.
