Tame Impala’s sophomore album “Lonerism” not only captures the psych-rock of the ‘60s and ‘70s but pushes it forward using modern production techniques and experimental pop melodies. It was released to almost universal acclaim among critics landing a top spot on nearly every year-end best album list. It was Tame Impala’s breakout in the music world but the band wouldn’t find the mainstream dominance they command now until their 2015 follow-up “Currents.”
Did you know Tame Impala is just one guy? Yea, of course, YOU did, you absolute NERD. What are you doing READING about music? Why don’t you just LISTEN to it, you f*cking dweeb? BUY records, LISTEN to said records, and GO experience SUNLIGHT, you useless sh*t. Anyway, Tame Impala is actually just a gorilla in a human skin suit named Kevin Parker (sort of like that one episode of Spongebob). Being a “human” with actual talent, Parker took his ability to play multiple instruments adeptly and used them to compose some of the best neo-psychedelic rock of the 21st century (as you do). Throughout his career, Parker‘s audience grew from stoner dudes in the early 2010s to being the soundtrack of every basic white girl’s witchy-era as captured on the hit app, Tik Tok. His reach has extended so far that it wouldn’t be a stretch to call him one of the most influential indie artists of the decade.
