TALKING ABOUT THE MAKING OF FLYING MICROTONAL BANANA, ERIC MOORE OF THE BAND SAID: “EARLIER THIS YEAR WE STARTED EXPERIMENTING WITH A CUSTOM MICROTONAL GUITAR OUR FRIEND ZAK MADE FOR STU. THE GUITAR WAS MODIFIED TO PLAY IN 24- TET TUNING AND COULD ONLY BE PLAYED WITH OTHER MICROTONAL INSTRUMENTS. WE ENDED UP 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 A TURKISH HORN CALLED A ZURNA.” SHIMMERING, HYPNOTIC AND PROPULSIVE AND POWERED ALONG, AS EVER, BY THE METRONOMIC BEAT OF TWO DRUMMERS, ‘FLYING MICROTONAL BANANA’ TAKES A SUBTLE MUSICAL SHIFT AWAY FROM THE FRAZZLED FREAK-BEAT OF ITS PREDECESSOR, ‘NONAGON INFINITY’.

DESCRIPTION:
Psychedelic Alternative Rock LP - Geelong’s insuppressible King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard release their new album ‘Flying Microtonal Banana’ on Heavenly Recordings - the first of five albums they are set to release in 2017. Talking about the making of Flying Microtonal Banana, Eric Moore of the band said: “Earlier this year we started experimenting with a custom microtonal guitar our friend Zak made for Stu. The guitar was modified to play in 24- TET tuning and could only be played with other microtonal instruments. We ended up 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 a Turkish horn called a Zurna.” Shimmering, hypnotic and propulsive and powered along, as ever, by the metronomic beat of two drummers, ‘Flying Microtonal Banana’ takes a subtle musical shift away from the frazzled freak-beat of its predecessor, ‘Nonagon Infinity’. Trance like, in parts clipped and concise
