Default Tame Impala

Tame Impala are a three piece psychedelic rock band from Australia who I am really getting into at the moment after having the chance to see them live a while ago. They're also quite young too so kudos to them.







Go check them out and let me know what you think!

I just listened to those two songs and while they may not win awards for originality, their music strikes me as a pleasant and dreamy throwback to 60s psychedelia, and the last one is quite reminiscent of Cream. I think I'll check out one of their EPs. I imagine they'd put on a good live show too.

That is EXACTLY what I thought when I first heard them - very reminiscent of Cream. They do put on a very good show though and are quite enjoyable regardless.

This is great i'm gonna get an album, I think over the next decade there will be a psychedelic revival at some point.

I've been listening to them for the past few days. Good band, easy to get into, though i agree with the lack of originality thing. I love their drum beats~

Agree, I reckon psychedelic would be returning soon to the mainstream, perhaps combined with electronica or avant-garde

I've heard a lot of people say this about them, but have always been quite shocked, as I have always thought of their song-writing as very impressive, and then add to that the superb recording quality they achieve. I'm from Perth and just came across this thread accidentally (surprising to see there is a topic on them here!). I'm still blown away each time I listen to "Sundown Syndrome"; and I think those guys have been a huge influence on the way I write and record songs and search for the bigger groove. I'd love one day to make music as good as these guys, but I am pretty biased (I think they rule haha).
cheers.
