Tame Impala

Media Title

Hailing from Perth, Western Australia, the wonderfully named Tame Impala are a band on a mission, seemingly hell-bent on recreating a slice of the late ‘60s where speaker blowing, mind expanding, sun-kissed psyche-rock is the order of the day, and all is impossibly groovy with the world. Theirs is an internal universe where everything sounds better with a head full of hallucinogens, drums are looped and phased into infinity, and vast armies of guitars surge back and forth and sideways to agreeably disorientating effect. Of course, those of a more jaded disposition would be well within their rights to dismiss all of this tripped-out tomfoolery as little more than beautifully executed pastiche, but there’s so much raw, unbridled enthusiasm and saucer-eyed love contained within, that you’d be a cold hearted, utterly joyless cynic to remain immune to Tame Impala’s undeniable charms. -Neil Ferguson
