Ah man King Gizz, you’re killing me – not just in the wallet, but with shelf space as well. Soon, I imagine there may well be a shelf in my house that contains only the works of King Gizz, Ty Segall and Thee Oh Sees, each of their catalogs expanding at a rate that seems untenable by any human measuremnts. As for the Gizz, they’re announcing their ninth album, Flying Microtonal Banana to be released in February. The album, which is an excercise in using only instruments tuned to a non-western microtonal scale, is set to be the first of five(!) albums out in 2017 from the band. Like I said, its getting hard to harness all this psych on one solid shelf. The video for Rattlesnake, and album cover, naturally arrives via band designer Jason Galea, subject of a recent Design Inspiration feature here on the site. Expect the usual computer doused wonderlands and neon-torched imagery backed up by the band’s motorik chugging, now with an Eastern bent and a dose of Turkish Zurna for good measure.
