Music to watch last night’s home videos by … just sayin’.
The latest release of Perth’s finest, Tame Impala, is further proof of what magic occurs when artists decide to lock themselves up, crank up the old classics (in this case some glam, I suspect) and let loose. It’s been two years since Tame’s Innerspeaker was so finely presented to us, with those incredible psych-anthems and, to be honest, I’ve been speculating whether there really is anything more that Kev can do with the guitar. But guess what, underestimations have been made and now all I wanna do is forget any responsibilities I have, play this on loop and watch the world go by.
The melodic and technical intricacies within this far-out beauty are euphoric, and unprecedentedly so. After non-stop touring over the course of these past two years, one can only imagine the whirlwind that has been battled through. It strikes me, that a lot of thought and patience has been required to master this level of creativity. Parker has sustained his prodigious musicianship and determination then pushed it to another level. For that we applaud you sir. And your “thongs.”
