Even Gene Simmons likes Tame Impala!
Gene Simmons Says “Rock Is Finally Dead,” And Pirating Is To Blame 100.7 WZLX

Though he doesn't seem to like much else these days.

I think "Elephant" is a very cool song, but all of their other stuff is a little bland to me. Anyone else think that Kevin Parker sounds exactly like John Lennon?

Yes! When I first heard them, it felt like I was listening to some unreleased Beatles material from 1967. It's positively eerie.

Well, at least we know he's working on his next album (and has been for some time). He just doesn't know when it'll be done.

Q&A: Tame Impala Talk New Album, Music in Ads, ‘Brooklyn Patch’ Rumors
Quote:
So, where are you in the next album’s process at this point?

It’s hard for me to say. For me, I’m working on it all the time and I’m so involved in it, that it’s almost impossible to tell how far away it is from being finished. I’m always adding things to it and taking things away. It’s like a piece of clay, slowly shaping into something. You could just stop at any moment and it would be finished. It would be something. It would be a sculpture or a bowl or whatever. And you could keep fingering it forever, and it wouldn’t necessarily be more finished or better. It is just up to you to decide when that piece of clay is something. That’s sort of how it is with me. I’ll start working on a song, and in a couple hours, it’s a song, it can be listened to. I can work on it another six months, or I can not work on it at all. It literally comes down to… I don’t know what it comes down to. A deadline I guess.

In writing school, there was a saying, that a great poem is never finished, it’s abandoned. That kinda follows what you are saying.

Yeah, that one resonates. I know exactly what you mean.

Are you using the same kind of process, as you did with Lonerism and Innerspeaker, where you recorded primarily by yourself?

Similar. Each time I do an album, I have slightly more of a clue what I’m doing. I have a slightly more professional approach each time. It’s like I know how to use the tools in my shed. It’s like I’m a carpenter, and I know how to use my tools more intimately than before. Before I was a kid in a toolshed banging away until something happened. Now, I can see how a tool would work. That’s a pretty sketchy, terrible analogy.

New Tame Impala song from their next album!
Tame Impala Share "Let It Happen", Announce Tour | News | Pitchfork

Very different from his previous stuff, much more disco/80's-techno sounding.

Also a big North American tour announced.
