 The best new band in many years

| | See all robefc's reviews (1)

I fiirst heard these by chance a couple of months ago and they have taken over my life. They describe the music themselves better than I can. - 'Tame Impala make psychedelic hypno-groove melodic rock music. It's intended for moving one's body to, and it's intended for keeping still and observing other forms of movement. It's bombastic but it's swirling, think of the shoulder bones of a giant striding feline creature through some kind of tunnel. If Tame Impala's music reminds you of what you'd want to put on when you next visit your mind's engine room then they're happy. If not, whatever, it's just music. Put it on when the sun next shines. Basically it's all about the feeling'

If that vaguely intrigues you go out and buy this album. It is music that fills your head and takes you far, far away from the mundane underpinned with monstrous grooves. In 25 years watching bands live these 4 kids who look like they'd struggle to get served in a pub are one of the very best bands I've ever seen.

They are psychedelic, they are heavy, they are pop, they are groovy, they are stoner, call them what you will, sometimes they are the band Kasabian would love to be but can't, they have the spirit of Lennon, Harrison, Hendrix, Morrison, Krieger, Lee, so while strictly speaking there is nothing totally new they are so good it doesn't matter.This is music that isn't made any more and they can live in any company.

The production is spot on as it harnesses the wild beast lurking and gives the great subtleties and complexities in the music space to breathe and work their way into the darkest recesses of your mind and body. There is brutal power and pop hooks perfectly combined. If they wanted to they could write hit singles, but instead they just play music that is lyrically and sonically a million miles from anything else around today.

Oh, and their self titled EP is immense as well. And they are mindmeltingly jawdropping live.

Tame Impala are simply the best new rock band in a long, long time and deserve your attention.

Don't usually review purchases but had to review these guys. First experienced them at Foo Fighters gig. Bought album on the back of that, these guys are very talented. Really looking forward to the next album as can't stop listening to this one. Well worth a look

Top 100 Music Reviewer

if you are a fan of the Bealtes in their "illegal" phase, you will love this, every track could follow Tomorrow Never Knows and you wouldnt know who was who. Have only just got into this album, but will be recommending it to everyone I meet. Genius!

How does a band so brilliant have so little spotlight.
This is the best album of 2010, maybe the best album of the last decade. The first listen you will be impressed, the more you listen to it, it will take over your life. I always loved the sound of the 60s & 70s, Pink Floyd, The Doors, Rolling Stones & the Beatles so was amazed when I first heard this. It fits so well with the sound you'd have heard in Portobello Road. This is up there with Sergeant Peppers.
Have a listen, 11 track of pure blissed out psychodelia and melodic rock.
My only complaint is the poor sound quality of the album. I'm not sure if its meant to be like this although a good run through a studio would enhance this album although I do admit it does make it sound more raw & live. Talking of live, my mate had never heard a track by them although I persuaded him to go and see them at Glastonbury and he's now a fully signed up fan. Buy buy buy.
