King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard - Oddments

Fill Your Lungs (review here), the 2013 release from King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard was number 18 on my year end list.  The prolific psych/garage rock collective from south Australia has quickly returned with the 12-track album Oddments.  Continuing their penchant for wide-scope musical expression, the first three tracks give an organ instrumental, the soft psychedelia of "Stressin'", and the garage pop "Vegemite".  Track four, "It's Got Old", features blues harp laced through a slacker vamp.  You get the picture, and I'm sure you'd love to have a copy of the triple gatefold deluxe vinyl or CD.  Well, sucker, you are out of luck as both those items are sole out.  And before you blame me, I'll point out that the album was released less than a week ago.  However, things are not all dark and painful as you can obtain a digital copy for ten Australian dollars at the link below.  Did you ask whether I'd convert that to American dollars or British pounds for you?  Clearly you are unaware of my math grades.  And you will remain unaware of my math grades.  Test out a few tracks below, and stream the entire album at the purchase link below.  It will be a weird and wonderful 34 minutes, but what do you expect from King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard?
