You heard right, King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard will release five new records in 2017! The first is 'Flying Microtonal Banana,' recorded at the band's own studio in Brunswick East, Melbourne, in the summer of 2016. 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 USD200 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. Flying Microtonal Banana takes a subtle musical shift away from the frazzled freak-beat of its predecessor, Nonagon Infinity which was release in 2016.
