Received a 7.5 rating from Pitchfork. KING GIZZARD & THE WIZARD LIZARD has surprise released their third album of 2017, Sketches of Brunswick East, a jazz and Tropicalia infused collaboration with MILD HIGH CLUB. Sketches is a soothing balm of a record, a chance to get to know King Gizzard’s sunny, playful side. Where previous albums have slipped down sonic worm-holes to explore distant galaxies, this one is an examination of (and homage to) the Melbourne suburb in which King Gizzard write and record in their own studio, and from where they run their planet-spanning psychedelic operation. A knowing nod to Miles Davis’s Sketches of Spain, this album also sees the band further exploring a Tropicalia element their music only ever previously hinted at. The band’s various sketches about time and place were reworked and pieced together, akin to “sampling-culture, in which old ideas are reshaped and suddenly things make sense,” explained lead singer STU MACKENZIE, “It was like we were continually jamming with ourselves.”
