UPDATE: POLYGONDWANALAND is available now on King Gizzard’s website.
Do me a solid, load up Spotify and head on over to King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard’s corner. What does it look more like, the discography of a classic rock act from the 1960s or a Melbourne band that started in 2010?
After the huge promise that they would drop a whopping four albums in 2017, the Gizz have actually gone and done it. Early in the year we heard Flying Microtonal Banana, followed by the doom-infused, four-part Murder of the Universe, followed by Sketches of Brunswick East, a joint LP with Mild High Club.
Just today they’ve announced the final piece of the puzzle, POLYGONDWANALAND, an album they’ll be releasing this Friday for free.
Introducing POLYGONDWANALAND, the fourth and final 2017 album from Melbourne crackpots King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard.
See below for the band’s post about the album. They’re offering it on a platter; artwork, masters and all. Press it on vinyl, burn it to a CD, turn it into the sickest mixtape of all time… it’s yours.
The album is here. Go forth and prosper.
POLYGONDWANALAND This album is FREE. Free as in, free. Free to download and if you wish, free to make copies. Make tapes, make CD’s, make records. The following files will be available to download at 9am Friday 17 Nov, Melbourne, Australia time at kinggizzardandthelizardwizard.com 1. DIGITAL MASTERS & ARTWORK: This is the best option if you wish to download the album for personal use. Available as high quality MP3 files 320 kbps (≈100 MB) or uncompressed WAV files (≈500 MB). Each version contains hi-res digital artwork of the front cover at 4000 x 4000 resolution. 2. CD MASTERS & ARTWORK: If you wish to press CDs you will need to download the DDP master and CD Artwork template. The DDP master is the format used for identifying information on optical discs. This master has the tracklist, ISRC codes & metadata embedded. In this .ZIP file you will also find a folder with a CD template, front cover art and extra artwork for back cover, inner tray, spine and booklet that you will need to put together yourself. 3. VINYL MASTERS & ARTWORK: The vinyl master is a completely seperate master to CD & Digital masters. There are physical limitations to what the head of the lathe can produce when cutting vinyl. For this reason these files will not sound normal on generic Hi Fi speakers. Only use this master if you wanna press vinyl. It will contain a Side A and a Side B WAV file as well as a PQ log for both sides with metadata for the pressing plant. In this .ZIP file you will also find a record cover template and a folder full of artwork ideas you can use to make your own back cover, spine and inner sleeve. Ever wanted to start your own record label? GO for it! Employ your mates, press wax, pack boxes. We do not own this record. You do. Go forth, share, enjoy. P.s. If u wanna make cassettes I don’t really know what you would do. Be creative. We did it once but it sounded really shit. Maybe try the WAVs idano bye bye
