The Christmas Countdown #24

The Christmas Countdown #24

The quite wonderful Tame Impala bring psychedelic indie rock back into the fray with this progressive record.

Tame Impala’s nostalgic intentions were made clear on their first album ‘Innerspeaker’ – however with ‘Lonerism’ they have gone above and beyond their prog-rock potential with catchier hooks, intelligent song writing and an overwhelming sense of cool.

Despite being from Perth and being produced by David Fridmann the album and band sound undeniably British – comparisons to The Beatles are inevitable – and this works to their advantage as they manage to sound simultaneously classic and contemporary at the same time.

It’s a ethereal and giddy album well worth a listen so jump on rara and give it a whirl!
