King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard - Trapdoor


The second song to be taken from Australia’s King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard newest acoustic LP Paper Mache Dream Balloon (yes that is the best LP title for a while, we agree) is beautiful mix of wood pipes, double bass and the kickiest psyche you ever did hear. Ladies and gentlemen ‘Trapdoor’ is our Track of the Day.

Sounding at times briefly like a Mighty Boosh sketch, the band manage to hold the integrity of the song with the bouncing rhythm which continually jiggers through the track only making way to allow hazy glimpses of the band’s true nature.

Released via Heavenly Records, the band seem to fit this new genre they are creating. Acoustic-psyche may be our favourite thing in a while, balancing between whimsy, WW1 and wonderland it tugs at the synapses and lifts the dancing feet.

Take a listen and experience the joy for yourself.
