Four guitar tracks to rock out to this week

Including songs by King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard and The Flaming Lips.

Feel like you couldn’t keep up with music this week? No worries, we’ve got you covered with a list of the best and latest guitar tracks. Here are four that you have to hear:

Giant Baby by The Flaming Lips

The Flaming Lips get experimental on their new release, Giant Baby. The single opens with narration from The Clash’s Mick Jones before diving into a spacy soundscape of robotic garble, bright percussion and guitar chords. The track is a cut from King’s Mouth: Music and Songs, which was first released in April on Record Store Day as a limited run vinyl-only album. The LP is set for an official digital release on July 19.

Parents by YUNGBLUD

YUNGBLUD is back with Parents, his third single of 2019. The track opens with jaunty guitar chords and bouncy beats, but the British singer ramps things up during the chorus by introducing heavy riffs. The track is a follow up to 11 Minutes, his high-profile collaboration with Halsey and Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker.

Self-Immolate by King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard

Fiery and aggressive, Self-Immolate is unlike anything King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard have ever released. The group pivot away from their signature psychedelic tones for hard-hitting thrash metal sounds, featuring gargantuan guitar riffs and crashing drums. The Australian outfit previously released their Fishing For Fishes LP in April.

Might Be Right by White Reaper

White Reaper made their return with Might Be Right, their first new music in over two years. The Louisville rock band get funky on the disco-influenced single, but still maintain their garage-punk edge with guitarist Hunter Thompson’s dynamic shreds. The track is the band’s first release on Elektra Records.
