Album review: King Gizzard is less intense but still impressive on latest LP
It wasn't that long ago that King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard was just an up-and-coming band with a preposterously dumb name. As 2017 has unfurled, they've moved into another category altogether. Now, they're much-loved, much obsessed-over indie-prog heroes on a creative tear...
