Δ   King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard: Nonagon Infinity review — Aussie psych–rockers return with urgency.
Δ   King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard have released four albums in less than two years; that lack of downtime might have resulted in an absence of transformative, life–altering experiences to insert into their lyrics, but these Australian psych–rock kooks have always been more about melody, frenzy and impact rather than compelling storytelling. There is a sense of urgency to this latest offering, as if last year’s fey and breezy LP “Paper Mâché Dream Balloon” acted as a process of blissed–out creative rehab. The rusty screech of Robot Stop kickstarts the record before Gamma Knife careens down a midnight motorway on a flame–streaked motorbike. People Vultures is a satanic summoning, Invisible Face indulges a gorgeously groovy wig–out, and a gnarly guitar rains down on the metal–spirited Road Train, crashing this tight–knit chaos wagon of sound for good. Until somewhere around mid–August, anyway.

Christopher H James, Score: *****
Δ   King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard’s eighth album in half as many years is yet another “didn’t see that coming" change of direction. Ditching the whimsical, flower festival vibes and acoustic niceness of “Paper Mache Dream Balloon”, “Nonagon Infinity” is KG&LW’s heaviest set to date. Moreover, the whole thing runs in a continuous loop as each track collides into the next and the record’s end links back to the beginning “like a sonic mobius strip”, as the band have described it. Fans who found the 16–minute Head On/Pill to be an epic journey (and we know you’re out there) will have their stamina severely tested on this rollercoaster.
Δ   The cartwheeling clatter of electric grooves starts with the frantic Robot Stop and continues unapologetically into Big Fig Wasp where Joey Walker protests that “insects grow inside my body”. Given the band’s rattling, neurotic performance, it’s highly believable. The production is rough around the edges as various instruments bleed into one another, which only goes to amplify the paranoid anxiety lurking within People–Vultures and the auto–destructive occult convulsions of Evil Death Roll, which has the potential to become a real live favourite. Given the absence of pauses and occasional deranged celestial conspiracy theory, ie. the universe has an invisible face, Nonagon Infinity ought to have a health warning that side effects may include physical and mental disintegration.
Δ   Don’t be surprised if this is the one they’re remembered for.
