Description

Flying Microtonal Banana is the ninth album in five years for King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard.¬†It’s also the first of a whopping five albums we’re expecting from the unstoppable Melbourne collective this year!

The follow-up to 2016’s Nonagon Infinity finds the band experimenting with microtonal instruments and drawing from sounds most commonly heard in Middle Eastern and South Asian music. Microtonal tuning¬†features intervals smaller than a semitone and not found in customary Western tuning octaves.

Recorded in their Brunswick East studio between April and September 2016. It started with a custom microtonal guitar and giving everyone a budget of $200 to buy instruments and turn them microtonal, the record features the modified electric guitars, basses, keyboards and harmonica as well as the Zurna.
