I liked Papier Mache Dream Balloon (or w/e it was called) well enough

normally don't trust much from this city, but they're mostly good.

It might be good. I don't regret looking at this thread.

Paper Mache Dream Balloon sounds like 90s Of Montreal, and I love it. Don't understand the drastic change in sound. They want to sound tougher I guess.

Wasn't PMDB the stylistic diversion?

New one is maybe my 2nd favorite album of the year after Black Star.

Spotify really wants me to listen to this

yes. nonagon infinity just doubles down on the fidgety, high-energy, garage punk that's their primary through-line so far. one of my 2016 favorites, and i'm surprised it hasn't caught on with fans of tongue-in-cheek prog oddity.

oculus lump (contenderizer), Tuesday, 12 July 2016 17:23 (four years ago) link

yeah this is great. never listened to any of their other albums

global tetrahedron, Monday, 25 July 2016 15:15 (four years ago) link

finally listening to this, great! they really got psychedelic ants in their pants

Steve Gunn Mann-Dude (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Monday, 25 July 2016 18:24 (four years ago) link

based on this i feel like they'd be really fun live

global tetrahedron, Monday, 25 July 2016 18:44 (four years ago) link

yeah def seem "high energy"

Steve Gunn Mann-Dude (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Monday, 25 July 2016 18:46 (four years ago) link

global have you heard General Baby (local band), has a bit of this vibe but more lo-fi zappa

Steve Gunn Mann-Dude (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Monday, 25 July 2016 18:46 (four years ago) link

(it's from that whole larry wish & his guys house show axis that i don't really fully understand)

Steve Gunn Mann-Dude (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Monday, 25 July 2016 18:47 (four years ago) link

never heard of em!

global tetrahedron, Monday, 25 July 2016 19:10 (four years ago) link

General Baby don't even have a web presence, really

global tetrahedron, Monday, 25 July 2016 19:11 (four years ago) link

oops i guess they used to be fortified five that's why it's hard to find

Ilx doesn't love the gizzards and that's a fact.the last album is very good though.

nostormo, Tuesday, 21 November 2017 17:28 (three years ago) link

most recent one (polygondwanaland) is super-proggy and totally rules. these aussie freaks own 2017 imho

reggie (qualmsley), Tuesday, 21 November 2017 17:39 (three years ago) link

this is one of the best bands going rn

ToddBonzalez (BradNelson), Tuesday, 21 November 2017 17:42 (three years ago) link

I like them

sleeve, Tuesday, 21 November 2017 17:44 (three years ago) link

especially their microtonal/weird tuning stuff, a lot of stuff on that Banana record sounds great.

not so keen on the new one with narration, it seems extraneous

sleeve, Tuesday, 21 November 2017 17:44 (three years ago) link

Yeah i meant polygondwa above as their best record of the year. I wish they werent as repetitive melody wise though. Like back in the Fill Your Lungs days..

nostormo, Tuesday, 21 November 2017 17:46 (three years ago) link

they seem like they're excellent live too- the main guy definitely borrows some john dwyer moves tho

Who can report on the new one ?

calstars, Saturday, 30 December 2017 20:06 (two years ago) link

bit of a psychedelic soul vibe. mellower stuff, a la paper mache dream balloon and sketches of brunswick east

reggie (qualmsley), Saturday, 30 December 2017 20:16 (two years ago) link

Sounds like mediocre b-sides for all previous 4, except for one surprising and great doom metal/Uncle Acid style song (Great Chain Of Being)

nostormo, Saturday, 30 December 2017 22:40 (two years ago) link

"muddy water" sounds like a victory lap

reggie (qualmsley), Wednesday, 3 January 2018 17:45 (two years ago) link

"barefoot desert" is dope. 1 year, 64 songs. damn!

ILM don't care about Gizzard and you may be right at this point.Used to be great though.

ok i listened to the latest i was erm not expecting straight 86 speed metally thrash. Its not terrible i guess.

It made me think of HNIA’s different smart-ass visitation to metalfrom 2016, which was like, sunshine prog-metal(?). HNIA’s album was actually much more interesting imo.

Hunt3r, Friday, 23 August 2019 23:47 (one year ago) link

lot of young aussie bro's really really like these dudes (and possibly drugs??)

Tokyo Ghetto Stüssy (King Boy Pato), Friday, 23 August 2019 23:54 (one year ago) link

because i'm slightly interested in what they're on about, repeated listens haven't been bad, also the guit style is more thrash than beedleybeedleybeedlebeedely. i guess ecoconscious thrash shit is closer fit for olds who are more garage or postpunk maybe. 'i have gone insane-o i lust for volcano pee with molten lava give me my nirvana' and 'auto-cremate! self-immolate!'

Hunt3r, Saturday, 24 August 2019 13:28 (one year ago) link

Taking my son to see them in a few weeks, he's a big fan. Trying to get caught up on their endless catalog. They seem like great musicians, very creative and intense, but the sheer repetition of their approach wears me down.

Which ones should I listen to if I want to hear them mix it up more? So far I've liked Flying Microtonal Banana the most, but I've barely scratched the surface.

Mario Meatwagon (Moodles), Monday, 26 August 2019 13:52 (one year ago) link

nonagon infinity is the most accessible to early olds imo, it's relentless and stirring.

i love the first one that was my intro, which is very psych- can't remember the name, it has Head On/Pill?

I'm in Your Mindfuzz is pretty strong imo.

I was meh on Fishing For Fishies which is working that sound conceit so hard, or maybe not the sound I wanted. The recent is really fun, but it's way chewing gummy to me. Still the more I listen, there more I am charmed by it.

I can't remember Polygondwanaland, so...

Hunt3r, Monday, 26 August 2019 20:57 (one year ago) link

I was half-hoping the new one would be even more thrashy, which is kind of a funny thing — they're constantly churning out so many records in so many different veins that you wind up with a fairly loose attachment to any of them sounding particularly Gizzardy. Or maybe it's just the nature of thrash that once you blend a little of it into what you're doing, it starts feeling like you might as well thrash all the way; it's kind of an extremist genre!

At some point they should release a detailed guide to their working methods, like a productivity self-help book for rock musicians. At this point I'm just curious how they divide up their time.

ንፁህ አበበ (nabisco), Monday, 26 August 2019 22:17 (one year ago) link

Minimize chord progressions, tempo changes, syncopation, and vocal melodies seems to be part of it, at least for the straightforward rock LPs.

Is it?

Mario Meatwagon (Moodles), Tuesday, 27 August 2019 03:03 (one year ago) link

gonna guess yes

j., Tuesday, 27 August 2019 03:10 (one year ago) link

Infest The Rats' Nest is kind of a wild record. I think I like them in metal mode more than some. This pretty much sounds like old school Metallica meets Sleep.

Mario Meatwagon (Moodles), Sunday, 1 September 2019 04:55 (one year ago) link

one of the better metal albums of 2019 so far imo

you could say "it's just kind of a gloss of common metal ideas" to which i would say so is like 80% of metal nowadays

With an Extreme Burning (aka The Tormentor) (GOTT PUNCH II HAWKWINDZ), Thursday, 5 September 2019 10:13 (one year ago) link

I saw them play in Austin last night, pretty good show. Huge, extremely hyped up crowd. The new songs went over really well, but there was a little too much time spent on the slow jazzy numbers, letting all the band members sing songs, and some endless boogie beats. Needed a bit more of the fast-paced material.

Mario Meatwagon (Moodles), Thursday, 5 September 2019 11:17 (one year ago) link

Ooh, I'm liking K.G. so far. A return to the microtonal shit.

Mr. Cacciatore (Moodles), Friday, 20 November 2020 05:15 (one week ago) link

Very fun yes, and some enjoyable curveballs as well
