Stream King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard’s ‘Paper Mache Dream Balloon’ for Free

King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard have shared a free stream of the title track from their forthcoming album Paper Mache Dream Balloon, out on November 13 via ATO Records/MapleMusic Recordings.

The band started life in 2010 as a garage rock combo but with their latest release, they initially thought that album was going to go in a darker and heavier direction, reflecting what they had been playing live. However, frontman Stu Mackenzie decided to take things in a completely different direction.

On part efforts, the band channelled a number of different sounds ranging from Krautrock to jazzy psychedelia.

“I always wanted to be a band where you would expect the unexpected each time, with each album being treated like a different phase,” Mackenzie said in a statement.

This is why the band decided to record their seventh effort only using acoustic instruments.

“Acoustic guitars, flute, double bass, fiddle, harmonica, drum kit, clarinet. Whatever we could find really,” he said.

The result is a lilting pop album that captures the exuberance of the band’s past efforts.
