New Music: Tame Impala- Feels Like We Only Go Backwards
Just finished listening to the brilliant new album, Lonerism, from Australian psych rock outfit Tame Impala. Hard to believe that these guys reside in the same land as Wolfmother and Jet. I'm probably being ignorant when I say that and there are probably a lot of good guitar bands from down under. If there are, they don't get the publicity in northern climes. The best North American music site to check out Australian music is probably Indie Shuffle.
My favourite track off the album is Feels Like We Only Go Backwards which, coincidentally, is the band's new single. The title of the song suggests a nightmare where we live under some regressive right wing government, but the lyrics are more personal than that. The song is simple but oh so psychedelic. Listen below:
Lonerism is available now. Buy it on iTunes, at Amazon, or at your local record store.
The single Feels Like We Only Go Backwards will be available November 20th via Modular.
Tame Impala are currently on a world wide tour and they will be playing The Phoenix in Toronto on November 12. Check your local listings for a gig near you.
