King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, “Hot Water”

Nick Das

The flute no longer holds the sonic foothold it once did in the late ‘60s, but King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard are looking to change this fact. Situated at the midsection between the Summer of Love and the Third Great Awakening of the ‘70s, the Australian band takes a handful from the culture bucket–prog driven basslines, Hawaii Five-0 drum fills, Jethro Tull-inspired flutes all included–and assembles a psych-rock song for the comparably faster age of the internet. Gone are the four-minute wandering guitar solos and the self-indulgent studio effects, “Hot Water” makes the case that not all prog has to exist lost in the depths of a mythical forest during the dark ages.
