Anybody else addicted to Butterfly 3000 yet? I see Catching Smoke getting them some mainstream love. It's such a catchy tune, and the subject matter is pretty nice taboot.

I grabbed the Mariposa 3000 edition during the on sale. Anyone else grab one, and if so... what language did you get?

You haven't lived until you've had a robot shart in your ear and followed along in the live setlist thread while it happens.

Is this album a joke?

Because it kinda sounds like it.

But, I don't think our fans do happily lap it up, I think they go online and talk about how it was a bad show.

I dig it. Sure, it's got some cheesy moments, and it kind of sounds like Gizz doing a Tame Impala impression. But it's catchy and a perfect 'drinking on the back deck' kind of album.

There are a lot of elements that remind me of my favorite parts of Polygondanaland.

It sounds more like they?re making fun of Kevin Parker than ripping him off to me.

I like it .  It's gotten a lot of play around here.

It gets a lot of play over here too. It's actually the first Gizz album my wife admits to liking. We've listened to it every night that we've spent on the deck drinking since it came out.

I don't even know if I've actually even played Currents.  Maybe once when it came out.  Guess I should check it out again.

Late reply here, picked up Butterfly 3000 on vinyl recently, been digging it.  Between wax and streaming, I've heard the album 10x since Sat:P
On first listen I heard tunes that sound like Radiohead, Prince, and early Pink Floyd.  Overall the album sounds like Stu took a week or two holiday in Eastern China and ran with it.  Best Gizz album since Sketches of East Brunswick.

It really is a good album. I don't know if you saw, but they made a video for every song on the album and they released a Blu-Ray version of it today.
