It's amazing that these guys can draw so heavily on the 60's psychedelic era and still manage to sound as fresh and relevant as they do. There's really nothing cliche about this. Their songwriting is superb and the recording is excellent. This is far from being the style of music that I normally listen to, but these guys are great.

I heard their song Runaway, houses, city, clouds on the radio through a bit of a haze of alchol and though it was pretty blissful but on relisteing to it it's only the end bit I like and that sounds like a bit of a rip-off of countless other similar songs. The one that most springs to mind is the Tommy segment from Focus's Eruption thing.

I've been loving this band recently; Half Full Glass of Wine and Sundown Syndrome are beautiful songs.

After listening to Innerspeaker and their EP a few more times since, I can only say that Tame Impala gets better with every listen. They clicked with me one evening when I was lounging down the back of a bus, exhausted after a long day's work, with nothing but their music and a fresh breeze blowing over me. Cheesy I know, but these moments are great.

These are definitely moments that are Tame Impala moments! I'm glad I'm not the only one who is digging this band!

Tame Impala is a very good band with some great promise. Musicly they are solid, and the vocals are really nice. I see a possibly good future for this band.

These guys are pretty awesome. Sound similar to bands like Cream but they do have their own sound. They seem like a healthy mix of psychedelic and maybe a little indie feel as well.

Reeaaally digging Tame Impala (again) at the moment. If you still haven't gotten into them... you should.

Innerspeaker is going in my top 3 of the year for sure. I was already in a heavy 60s psych kick earlier this year and when I heard these guys it was one of those speechless moments where I was listening to exactly what my ears wanted to hear. Within a month of discovering these guys they went up to over 100 plays on my last.fm. Everyone should listen to these guys.

I can't wait to hear what else they can do. I just don't want this to be another Wolfmother thing where everyone goes "ohh retro" and then we all forget about them.
