The album that King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard put online for free, master tapes and all for anyone to use ("Free as in, free."). Every label and their mom got in on the free licensing craze and did their own pressing; there are subsequently 250+ different vinyl, cassette and CD versions catalogued on Discogs. King Giz's longtime North American label ATO throws their hat into the ring with this unique 4-way split color variant. As far as the music is concerned, the hyper prolific outfit plays around with intricate layers and uncommon time signatures. In comparison to other outputs, Polygondwanaland is heavier on prog rock, which sits well with the band's signature psychedelia. Check out the evolving 10-minute epicness that is "Crumbling Castle," or the melodic title track. Other highlights include "Deserted Dunes Welcome Weary Feet" and "Inner Cell." Includes foldout poster and download code for a bonus live performance in lossless format.
