Trippy pop bliss
PSYCHO-DELIC MAN. Tame Impala’s “Lonerism” is an amazing album and I cannot stop listening to it. Y’all should too. Cool.
Tame Impala proves that playing guitar is still cool and that stoner guitar solos are acceptable (only if you double it with synth). All jokes aside, “Elephant” is the second tune from their sophomore album “Lonerism” that shows that The Black Keys are not the only guys that can make motorcycle jams and that fuzzed-out stoner, Pink Floyd bridges are still so badass \m/
The hazy psychedelic rockers from down under, Tame Imapla return with their first tune from their sophomore album “Lonerism” entitled “Apocalypse Dreams”. This track is an epic sunny pop rock song that reminds me of some of the contemporary psycho-delic vibes such as Dungen v(Ta De Lugnt 4 eva) mixed with Late of the Pier’s “Blueberry”. This is a great tease of their new album and glad to see they are sticking to their guns and making well written and produced rock music.

Tame Imapala brought me one of my favorite records of 2010, “Innerspeaker” – a tastefully psychedelic collection of tunes that paid homage to the album format, a medium that is not as respected or properly executed as it was years before. Mr. Alkan swoops and transforms “Why Won’t You Make Up Your Mind” into a fuzzed out disco track. Who knew harmonized distorted guitars could be so satisfying on the dancefloor.
An analog fever seems to be sweeping Australia with the Midnight Juggernauts moving into a warmer/psychedlic realm and the stoner rockers, Tame Impala making big moves around the world. Cut Copy follows suit and return with “Where I’m Going” – a very 70s tinged pop rock tune featuring Gary Glitter “Rock and Roll Part 2″ Schaeffel Beat drums and over the top kids screaming “Yeah! Yeah!”. Next up is Van She, let’s see what they come up with next.
