Australia’s King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard cross all sorts of genres so heavily that they are nearly impossible to categorize. The band move around easily in alternative music, psychedelic rock, prog, surf (not as weird as it sounds, to be honest) and garage rock.
This album is a freebie, and, as it turns out, one of their best works. Give it a listen and be converted.
Here are this year’s (disappointing, as usual) Bandcamp toppers of 2017. No Santiago Fradejas. No A.M. Ferrari-Fradejas. Nor Jeff Gburek. Nor Marco Lucchi. Nor Noël Akchoté. Nor so many other deserving artists who don’t offer up a plate of decent, non-offensive pseudo-soul, hip-hop or tacky dance music. Ah, well.

Gamardah Fungus are an experimental groups out of Dnipro, Ukraine, who build a lot of their own instruments. According to the band’s Bandcamp site, “The album was inspired by the spellbinding events, which happened to us in an old abandoned manor in Ukrainian forests.”
This is my first exposure to Gamardah Fungus. I look forward to hearing and sharing more in the future.
