    The Bandcamp Friday force is strong with King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard today. The Australian psych-rock crew have released not one, but two lengthy projects on the beloved digital music platform: a 28-song demos collection and an 18-track live album.

    Demos Vol. 1 + Vol. 2 contains demos and unfinished loosies plucked from throughout the band’s 15-album discography. There are early versions of old tracks like 2011’s “Let It Bleed” and 2017’s “The Spider and Me”, as well as unheard takes of super recent 2020 singles “Honey” and “Straws In The Wind”.

    As for the new live album, Live in Asheville ’19 captures King Gizzard’s September 2019 gig at the New Belgium Brewing Company in Asheville, North Carolina. Technically it’s their fifth live record of 2020 following hefty release drops in January and April, and it features tracks such as “People Vultures”, “This Thing”, and “Cyboogie”.


    King Gizzard fans are used to combing through massive quantities of new material at a rapid pace — the band famously released five (!) studio albums in 2017 — but this latest dump feels like it might keep them busy for a long while. As of now, the albums are only available for streaming and purchase on Bandcamp, so you can take a listen below.

    Neither record comes in a physical format, but the band did release limited edition t-shirts for each of them. It looks like two of them are sold out, so act fast if you want this neat white Live in Asheville ’19 tee.
