Tame Impala

Tame Impala are a four piece psychedelic rock band from Perth, Australia. The band consists of Kevin Parker (lead guitar and vocals), Dominic Simper (guitar) and Jay Watson (drums and backing vocals, synths), and touring member Nick Albrook becoming full time on bass in 2010 (he played guitar in most shows from late 2008 through 2009, swapping guitar for bass with Dom in 2010).
Their name refers to the impala, a medium sized antelope. Their musical sound draws from a wide range of influences (most notably Cream and Germany’s Colour Haze) and they like to see themselves as "a steady flowing psychedelic groove rock band that emphasizes dream-like melody."
The band signed a worldwide deal with boutique label Modular Recordings in mid 2008, releasing the self titled EP in late 2008, the single Sundown Syndrome/Remember Me in 2009. Their debut album, "Innerspeaker" was released in 2010, with lead single Solitude is Bliss and second single Lucidity. Their second album has also been reported to be in production with rumors of a release late in 2011.

      sometimes its hard to put into words what an artists body of work means to you. most of the times you read reviews and its purely methodical. there’s no heart, no past history, just what they’re hearing now. sometimes music is a puzzle, and it doesnt make sense, until you put it all together. thats […]
