King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard- Willoughby’s Beach
Frantic, unapologetic surf psychedelia. Not many words but lots of ‘yeahs’ and ‘whoops’. These young lads from Victoria have a musical maturity well beyond their years. Best enjoyed live, preferably in Brunswick whilst wearing tight jeans and a daggy sweater.
Sounds like: a high speed joyride
The Black Keys- El Camino
These guys really can do no wrong. Moving away from the two piece act was a smart move, it had done its dash and has helped them to stay relevant. The White Stripes broke up, The Black Keys acquired some new members. Taking a step away from their signature blues rock, this album has a slightly more ‘mainstream’ sound but every track is killer. Catchy and dancey with hearty servings of groove. My soundtrack of summer.
