King Gizzard are well known for their use of odd time signatures, polyrhythms and polymeters so today we are going to take a closer look at how these techniques are put to work in their 2017 album "Polygondwanaland".

I’ve used Moises app to help analyze this album. Their stem separation tool is great for removing or isolating instruments from songs. With this app, you can also find chords, and change the key or the tempo of a song, amongst other features which make it a great tool for learning or analysing songs.
