Ride Waves
Label: Griz

Some of the fattest, most exciting beats I have heard in a while! Griz’ 5th studio album is riding BIG! Bigger beats, bigger sounds, and bigger collaborators (Snoop Dog, Wiz Khalifa, Bootsy Collins). While the vibes are high, the grooves are deep and the beats are blasting, Griz covers a lot of other territory too, reflecting his immersion into societal influences, culture amid a pleasant variety of soundscapes and musical approaches. Maybe you will be lucky enough to see him on May 17 at Armory in Minneapolis, MN

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard - Infest The Rats’ Nest

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard - Infest The Rats’ Nest

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard
Infest The Rats’ Nest
Label: ATO Records

Imagine you are in a quirky psych-pop band. Then someone turns you on to Slayer, Black Sabbath, Metallica and Motorhead. You decide to write an old school metal album. That’s what seems to have happened to KG&TLW (who are well known for genre hopping tendencies). This album is thrashing and heavy, with gruff metal vocals about environmental impact amid zany Slayer-ish solos. The Gizzard will never be the same. (8)

Immaculately constructed instrumental progressive psychedelic doom rock that utilizes these multiple influences to paint sonic pictures of unmatched beauty, complexity and prowess.

Gramatik - Re:Coil, Pt. II

Gramatik
Re:Coil, Pt. II
Label: Lowtemp Music

Exactly two years after the release of the first part of this Re:Coil, electro-funk pioneer Gramatik delivers Pt II. As with the first, these tracks are all collaborations, except the final which is solo. Showing off many faceted styles and approaches to the electronic genre with such luminaries as DeFunk, Big Gigantic, and Beat Fatigue insure many memorable jams. See him do his thing live on 11/15 at the Majestic Theater in Madison, WI with Balkan Bump, Opiuo.
