BJC As usual, King Gizzard has distinguished themselves without sounding alienating, over complex, or inaccessible. With the eponymous use of micro-tonality, they make a sound that stands out from the lot. They aren't afraid to take on a challenging new concept and make it sound great. Favorite track: Rattlesnake.

MediaevalJo Favourite : Billabong Valley

Honestly just really good to listen too, nothing feels too repetitive despite some songs being around the 7 minute mark. Favorite track: Rattlesnake.

about

Flying Microtonal Banana is King Gizzard's first-ever experience in microtonal tuning, which features intervals smaller than a semitone and not found in customary Western tuning octaves.

"Earlier this year we started experimenting with a custom microtonal guitar our friend Zak made for Stu," further explained drummer Eric Moore. "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."
