King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard - Sketches of Brunswick East, album aside

Eclectic Easy Listening

This is wonderfully catchy and tuneful and oddball: elevator music meets Incredible String Band meets fairground music meets lounge music meets city street sirens meets spoken asides meets birdsong meets commercial jingles and some nice bass lines as well as flute playing.

All prettily sung too.

I haven’t really listened to the lyrics yet, mesmerised/soothed as I have been by the brightness of the musical ambience, like passing a summer tea-party tent wherein a local band is entertaining a room full of the moderately elderly tripping on mild doses of good acid.

Streamed here.
