Tame Impala

I can't get enough of this Australian three-piece, who call the western most city of Perth their home. The band weaves a mix of psyche, brit-pop and late 60s scuzz so delicate and precise, it's easy to see why they are generating so much buzz...Ughh, and dare I say it, comparisons to the Rubber Soul (and post) era John Lennon fronted Beatles cuts.

With heavy play on MBE, the band came through LA to overcapacity crowds at both the Echo and Silverlake Lounge (supporting residency nights, mind you). Unfortunately, I made the poor decision to skip the hullabalo; but was greeted with excitement when I caught word that they will make a return and proper headlining visit in November.

If you haven't gotten a chance to check these dudes out, stream a couple tracks below and here's a little bit the LA Times wrote up.


Tame Impala - Desire Be, Desire Go
Tame Impala - Lucidity
