Back in November last year King Gizzard announced they'd be giving away â€˜Polygondwanalandâ€™, their fourth LP of the year, for free and for everyone to do with as they please. Naturally, we thought weâ€™d give it the Fuzz Club treatment and hereâ€™s a lowdown on what weâ€™ve been up to with our pressingâ€¦
Weâ€™re super excited to finally share the details for our pressing of 'Polygondwanaland', we really have gone all-out! This LP was the Australian bandâ€™s fourth album to be released last year and somehow, considering their relentless writing and touring schedule, their finest work to date. Whilst on previous records theyâ€™ve dealt in everything from jazz, soul and folk through to krautrock, stoner and doom, on this collection of tracks the Australian heavyweights hone their batshit psych-freak-outs into ten mind altering prog-tainted jams.
So, what makes our pressing so different? First of all, for all you audiophiles out there, we got the lacquer cut at half-speed by engineer-extraordinaire Miles Showell at the prestigious Abbey Road Studios. All of our variants are cut from the same metal work which means that every tiny little detail of King Gizzardâ€™s wonky, hedonistic sonic prowess has made it into the recordâ€™s grooves.
|Not only will it sound absolutely incredible but itâ€™ll also look the part too. With alternative artwork, the LPs will be housed in a deluxe tip-on gatefold jacket with printed inner-sleeves. Glued inside the gatefold will be a 16-page booklet which includes lyrics and a bunch of reworked illustrations taken from the original artwork provided by the band.
As for the vinyl colours; thereâ€™s /100 ultra-clear, /100 sea blue and /300 black. First two are long-gone but thereâ€™s still a handful of black editions left so get in there quick if youâ€™re after one. We're also doing some cassettes and CD's so whatever's your preferred format, we've got you covered. Pick one up here.
(Records will be shipping mid/late March)
