chugging genius! this brilliantly titled record is their 1st of five - yes, five - in 2017 & what a way to kick off! Shimmering, hypnotic & propulsive & powered along, as ever, by the metronomic beat of two drummers, 'Flying Microtonal Banana' takes a subtle musical shift away from the frazzled freak-beat of its 2016 predecessor, 'Nonagon Infinity'.

Trance like, in parts clipped & concise yet deeply psychedelic, it reveals yet another musical side to a band seemingly in perpetual motion. The record features modified electric guitars, basses, keyboards & harmonica as well as a Turkish horn called a Zurna. Sonically it sits part way between Goat's manic, mystical chants, Ty Segall's spiralling 'Manipulator', thee oh sees' muscular garage psych & Tame Impala's kaleidoscopic soundworld.
