Yeah, when Innerspeaker came out earlier this year it kind of threw me into a 60s psychedelic throw back. Pulled out my copy of Revolver and Surrealistic Pillow and started getting into Brian Jonestown Massacre's psych stuff, particularly Satanic Majesties' Second Request.

But yeah, Tame Impala is excellent. Their vocals are really good, the voice kind of reminds me of Lennon, but not a carbon-copy like some people I talk to like to suggest. Earlier today I bought the EP they released before Innerspeaker and was pleasantly surprised by the songs I wasn't familiar with, they also go for a more lo-fi sound in the EP which is interesting. I'm glad they didn't stick with that sound for Innerspeaker though, I don't think it would've worked out as well.

Looking forward to seeing them when they come to LA this December.

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.
I am glad we all forgot about Wolfmother. Very, very glad. In fact why did you have to remind me of them?!

But yeah, hoping to catch Tame Impala a few times hopefully over the summer at some of our music festivals! They're bound to make an appearance somewhere.

I've been thinking about my top 3 but there's still very good albums being made these last months.
Is there a top of the year topic every year here? Or should I create one?

There will be plenty of those, don't worry. We will try to make an official one.

Such a great band! I was quite surprised to have them recommended by a friend, since it's usually the opposite . They stuck immediately for reasons that have already been explained in this thread. Old school but still fresh, simply put.

And for anyone into them I can highly recommend the swedish band Dungen which is pretty much in the same style, although they have been around for quite a while now. Check out the albums "Stadsvandringar", "Ta det lugnt", "Tio bitar" and "4".

Normally I lurk, but this band is truly amazing. I've only been listening to Innerspeaker and for as many songs I have gone through, I can honestly say I don't skip through. It's astounding to me because Radiohead is on average the one band I can do that with. I hope they have a promising, good career.

Regarding the locked Tame Impala thread...how about merging duplicate topics instead of just locking them? Seems like a waste of potentially good posts. The thread is in Indie & Alternative, btw - I didn't create it, just replied in it then it got locked.

(I see this happen a lot with various band topics, that's why I felt like saying something )

Normally they do get merged, don't they? Anyway I saw Tame Impala live for the first time since they became quite 'big' and I was sorely disappointed They used to be really great to see live. This last time they were flat and didn't sound great at all.
