After already dropping two psych opuses in Flying Microtonal Banana and the spoken-word-fuelled Murder Of The Universe this year, the seven-headed Gizz monster have now revealed that their next imminent LP will be a collaboration with Mild High Club frontman Alexander Brettin dubbed Sketches Of Brunswick East.
“[Mild High Club] came over and played Gizzfest with us in December and [Alex] just stayed at my house for a few weeks,” frontman Stu Mackenzie confirms to triple j. “We were sending each other these really rough, vague ideas before that… usually just a chord progression or a melody.”
They ended up punching about 15 different recordings, which Stu describes as “These interesting, chilled, jazzy, loose improvised pieces. Then we spent up until a month ago going back and forward, changing them, cutting things out… finished the record that way.”
The band have confirmed that the LP is 100% minted and will drop “hopefully very soon”, but Gizzheads shouldn’t hold out for a release date.
“We’re just gonna drop it at any point. It’s just coming out, straight up,” drummer Eric Moore says.
