Just when you think King Gizzard can't surprise you anymore, they drop two honest-to god rap tracks. Omnium Gatherum is the third of the band's miscellaneous song collections (the others being Oddments and Gumboot Soup), and it's stuffed to the brim with new sounds. Kepler-22b's sampling is reminiscent of Nujabes; the buttery-smooth Ambergris wouldn't feel out of place on a Thundercat record; and Candles sounds more like Mild High Club than the bands' official collaboration album.
The star of the show, though, has got to be the 18-minute behemoth of an opener, The Dripping Tap. It represents the first time the band came together to jam at the end of the COVID-19 pandemic, and it rocks. Clocking in at a massive 80 minutes, Omnium Gatherum is sure to have something to suit your tastes.
