Tame Impala

Kevin Parker (vocals/guitar) and Dominic Simper (bass) formed Tame Impala as 13 year olds in Perth in 1999, sticking to bedroom recordings until 2007, when Jay Watson joined them on drums and backing vocals. Their sound was pure late '60s, but wasn't the sound of any specific band from the era. They were as likely to be channeling the Nazz as the Jimi Hendrix Experience. Cocooned away inside walls of psychedelic fuzz in Western Australia, they re-created their preferred period one song at a time with the aid of gear and production techniques that sounded like they hadn't been dusted off since 1968. Like a lot of the buzz bands of the late 2000s Tame Impala's story involves MySpace. The social networking website rocketed them from a teenage garage band to the sought-after trophy in a multiple-label bidding war. It started when Modular Records sent them a message after hearing several songs on their MySpace page and asked for more. Tame Impala sent them a demo with 20 songs, which led to requests and offers from everyone under the sun. After consideration, they stuck with the label who had shown first interest, and signed with Modular in 2008.

In September of that year they released their first self-titled EP. There was some confusion among reviewers, several of whom referred to the release as "Antares, Mira, Sun" after the notes written on the artwork, a representation of the Orion Nebula drawn by bandleader and songwriter Kevin Parker. As well as drawing the art, the perfectionist Parker micro-managed the recording, performing every instrument himself. The EP went to number ten on the ARIA charts and number one on the independent label charts. Though Parker played each instrument on the EP, live they functioned as a real band, though at their early gigs they were famously unprepared and never wore shoes. At one such shambolic gig for a Vice Magazine party in Melbourne, indie electro-pop band MGMT's label manager caught their act and was impressed enough to offer them the support slot when his band toured Australia. That year they also supported the Black Keys and You Am I on national tours. In 2010, Tame Impala made their full-length debut with the Dave Fridmann-mixed Innerspeaker. Shortly after the release, Parker returned to his home studio in Perth to begin work on new material, and in 2012, the band followed up with their less guitar-focused sophomore effort, Lonerism. ~ Jody Macgregor, Rovi

Just got Lonerism and Innerspeaker on vinyl :) The way it was meant to be listened to
Definitely my favorite band of the 2000s
its impossible to be sad listening to this music!! favorite band of all time! their lyrics and music are also profoundly cinematic and thought provoking
Wander, sundown syndrome, music to walk home by and defiantly Expectation. . . Probably there best in my opinion
exquisite_so l a c e
Glad to have discovered their music.
Music
Hayden Beck: The Bold Arrow of Time, Jeremy's Storm, Apocalypse Dreams, It Is Not Meant To Be, Lucidity ... Are all really good and in the same vein. You listed some of my top favorites as well so we just may have similar tastes. Enjoy.
LOVE this stuff ;) And I CANNOT wait to see them live...all in time
Great music. If you like this stuff, check out Ratatat. They sound very similar.
Hayden: Any track off of Lonerism, Innerspeaker or their EP. aka, Any of their songs, theyre all sweet :)
jay18k

Elephant
It Feels Like We Only Go Backwards
Mind Mischief
These are my favorites, anyone got any recommendati o n s of others I should check out?
Great to know there's good music still being made since nirvana
Just enjoying a toke to the great Impala.
Great neo-psychede l i c band
Simple and elegant lyrics.
I found these guys through pitchfork best new albums from their first self-titled album. I was amazed by their awesome incarnation of 60's psychedelic rock. Like hearing John Lennon as the lead singer for Zeppelin or something strange yet familiar. Pitchfork often has their heads up their asses but occasionally they do call them accurately like these guys before anyone mainstream has a clue who they are.. I'm also shocked the song elephant put them on the map. Their first album is amazing!
love them
They remind me of early Pink Floyd love them to bits!!
Was introduced to this epic band this last weekend at a party...IN LOVE. He reminds me of John Lennon so much.
Tame Impala has been around for awhile.. Their psychedelic sound is what drew me in.. Kind of sucks that their only "mainstream" song elephants is what got them to be popular.. But if more young people start listening to this kind of music, it's a beautiful thing. <3
tame impala is now my favorite band. two thumbs up!!
f**king dope.
Saw the end of their set at ACL this year and was blown AWAY. I haven't stopped listening to them in 2 months. Telling everyone (and my momma) about them. Love love looooovvveee
Probably one of my Favourite bands forever! They're just brilliant! :D
thexlostxpap e r c l i p
Thought you guys would appreciate the new MGMT stuff... Really psychedelic/ t r i p p y http://www.y o u t u b e . c o m / w a t c h ? v = Q B u _ b z x v g d I
I'm starting to think these guys are getting an edge on the beatles
They sound like the Beatles that's y I'm starting to lik them so good
great find!!
Damn I love me some Tame Impala
Great music to get baked to!
Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of you life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lover's name will come on the screen in big letters. This is so scary because it actually works

ayerco_ho
glad I get to see them live in October!
this band is so good....ever y t i m e i listen to them i have a strange, simultaneous calm and full body groove going on...
Hands down My favorite band
Heard the song Elephant over and over and over and over again on a car commercial or something and loved it but didn't know what the song was or who it was by.. Thanks to my Arctic Monkeys station I finally found it! Yay!
Kevin's voice is stroking me like a fine wine. He sounds like a choir by himself. Can't stop listening to InnerSpeaker . Nothing competes with it right now. Come play in Minneapolis again!
Love this band. If you haven't heard of Tiga Lilly they're pretty similar.
No, it's me...Ringo. I think George is hanging out with John and Paul.
