Exactly! And why won't you give it to me? No, I don't know - I thought "complex time signatures" worked like magic over here.

I think one could also argue for their inclusion in Eclectic Prog.
 
But regardless of which subgenre, I think they definitely belong here in Prog Archives.

But to me that's such a silly genre. Psych/Space actually means something and I think King Gizz fits nicely.

I'd be perfectly happy for them to be in Psychedelic/Space Rock. However, I suggested Eclectic Prog in recognition of the variety they exhibit in their music.

I'd be happy either way too really. But no matter how eclectic their approach, its always with some kind of psych-vibe. I think.

Indeed! - often with a delightful middle-eastern twang to their riffing (but of course indo/raga is a bit of a stretch). Seriously, I really don't get how one can listen through their 2017-outings and somehow not think of King Gizzard as Progressive Rock.

When has that stopped other bands and artists from being included on here? Tongue

because there isn't any dogma given for that, simple as that
every member, every collaborator has a differing view on what prog is about
teams have to decide, we have rules, the genre definition as a guideline, as a rough orientation
we are discussing, we try to reach for unanimous decisions, we are unsalaried, we are humans, not machines ...

A small group of regular people who impose their own understanding of the genre and accordingly work on bettering the database in the best possible way they can manage. That's it really.

Multiple media outlets refer to KGATLW as prog: The Sydney Morning Herald refers to their "prog rock forebears" and Pitchfork media say they are "knee deep in prog rock".

Pitchfork also believes that Animal Collective and Fleet Foxes are prog so I guess that disqualifies them right off the bat
Nahh just pulling your leg.
Oh and please keep in mind the PSIKE team, just like any other here on PA really, solely bases its evaluation on the music of KGATLZ...not how other sites view them

Disregarding the whole pork discussion here's a current live clip off of jootoob. Damn these guys can play with a drive and groove that really connects with me. I am most definitely going to see them come March. In fact I can't wait. Let's hope they bring the same energy as they exhibit here:

I don't envy the Psych team on this one, sounds like Hawkwind revisited but one could argue pure psychedelic rock instead of psych-prog. Anyway, sounds good
