    About King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, from Gregory Heaney, AllMusic.com:

    King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard’s sense of unfettered sonic exploration makes it easy to mistake them for a long-forgotten relic of the psych explosion of the '60s. With a far-out sound that, at times, feels barely held together, King Gizzard evoke the eclectic rock experimentation of Frank Zappa’s early work with the Mothers of Invention, the anything-goes feeling of the Flaming Lips, and the demented glee of a random obscure '60s group plucked from a Pebbles compilation as they follow their musical flights of fancy wherever they might lead. King Gizzard’s prolific nature led them to release albums at a frenetic pace, and their intense desire to seek out new sounds and follow new paths—from expansive jazz-rock (2015's Quarters) to semi-acoustic ballads (the same year’s Paper Mâché Dream Balloon), and from sci-fi prog (2017's Murder of the Universe) to trippy garage rock (2014's I’m in Your Mind Fuzz)—meant that every one of their multitude of releases sounded different from the last, and each one was worth checking out. Some of their albums, especially Nonagon Infinity from 2016, stand shoulder to shoulder with the best psychedelic rock ever made.

    Their album art, merchandise, music videos, and other promotional material are created by Melbourne-based visual mastermind Jason Galea. Galea makes extensive use of various Victorian, Art Nouveau, and 1960s/70s-era typefaces alongside bubbly hand lettering to create a unique visual identity for each album.
