Murlocs Canned Manic Episode

Murlocs from Geelong Australia have released their 4th full-length album Canned Manic Episode on Flightless Records released March 22nd 2019. A Murloc is an imaginary creature from the World of Warcraft and The Murlocs are imagination expanders who really rock.  Guitars, organ, bass drum, keyboards, saxophone harmonics and more make for a diverse textured album of music. Many songs get the heart pumping with raucous energy others touch a familiar classic rock melody which is both classic and contemporary. This album is filled with music that feels like a sunny day at the beach with a few weird folk moments.
