King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard – “Sleep Drifter”

Australian garage-psych monsters King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard have ambitious plans to release five albums in 2017, and the first of those albums, Flying Microtonal Banana, is coming out next month. We’ve posted the early tracks “Rattlesnake” and “Nuclear Fusion,” and now they’ve also shared “Sleep Drifter,” an itchy guitar groove shot through with some of the same sort of vague Eastern tonality we heard on so many late-’60s rock records. There’s a very cool tabla-driven breakdown, too. Check it out below.

Flying Microtonal Banana is out 2/24 on ATO.
