Paper Mâché Dream Balloon
It’s weird to think that this is the same band that made Infest The Rats’ Nest, but that’s King Gizzard for you. Paper Mâché Dream Balloon is the band’s most relaxed album, excepting perhaps Sketches Of Brunswick East, and is recorded almost entirely on acoustic instruments.
While the music is lovely – Sense, Trapdoor and Time = Fate being some highlights – it’s worth also listening to the lyrics of the entire album, which are deceptively dark. Paper Mâché Dream Balloon is consistently ranked among fans’ top Gizz albums, and it’s a great place to start for people looking for something more accessible in the band’s catalogue.
