Melbourne rockers The Murlocs have announced their new album Calm Ya Farm will arrive Friday, 19th May. The follow-up to last year’s Rapscallion was recorded in the band’s home studios and, per a press release, sees the band move away from the psychedelic garage rock of their previous album and towards a sound influenced by county-rock classics like The Byrds‘ Sweetheart of the Rodeo. The Australian Psychedelica / garage rock band include 2 members of King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard,

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard these words will definitely be out-of-date because the band will have released two or three new albums. The Australians are prolific labourers of music without a cause (you cannot talk about them only as spearheads of garage-rock and modern psych-rock). Also, each album feels like the seven members of the band have gone through the front door of a costume shop and come out of the backdoor with the first thing they laid their hands on: A Voivod T-shirt, Beatles-style tails, a pair of second hand trousers worn by one of the Butthole Surfers, a Motörhead badge, Jethro Tulls’s ankle boots, one of those The Flaming Lips’ feather boas…

But really, at the end of the day, there’s only one truth: whatever they play, they will make a party out of it. And it doesn’t look like that’ll go out of fashion any time soon. They’re the most entertaining rock band in the world and they’ve just released a new album Omnium Gatherum.

Roughly seven years after forming, the Sydney-based band is finally ready to drop their self-produced, self-recorded debut album, SongBook, in March. The collection is an escapist, idealistic, time-traveling journey that frolics in Beatles-flavored strawberry fields, trudges through heavy stoner sludge, and plays with the sort of effortless, heady sounds of artists like Tame Impala and King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard who have made Australia this century’s hotbed for psych-rock. The band refers to their long-awaited debut as a trip down memory lane. Some songs were written nearly half a decade ago, after all—a lifetime in teenage years.

Hit of the week: King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard “Rattlesnake”

Restless Australian psych-rock crew King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard have always released music at a rapid pace — their most recent album, Nonagon Infinity, came out back in April — but they’ve just announced an ambitious plan to release five studio albums in 2017, starting with one called Flying Microtonal Banana on 2/24. Each one of the albums is based around a different sonic experiment, and this first one is their first foray into microtonal tuning.

The first single from the album is a 8-minute nervous puncher named “Rattlesnake,” and it comes with a video directed by Jason Galea.
