It rocks my world! Tame Imapala

I’m an 80’s child but I thank the universe greatly for not having to listen to cheesy and commercial music of that decade while growing up, instead, The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin were played at home and there it was…my love for Rock & Roll was born.

Tame Impala is an Australian band and Lonerism,  their second album, was voted one of the best albums of 2012. These are only a few reasons why, it has a psychedelic sound, which is a reminiscent of great rock bands from the 60’s and 70’s and although the lyrics are opaque and talk about loneliness it’s both, the lovely vocals and drums that come and hit in each song the final elements to an awesome  album that doesn’t sound like any other at this time.

Lonerism comes at a time when psychedelic rock music is hardly made, we are surrounded by commercial artists and everything becomes mainstream so quickly. This album is so refreshing and none of the twelve songs are disappointing, I listen to the whole album a ridiculous amount of times but  my favourite tracks are Elephant, Be above it and Endors Toi and It feels like we are going backwards.

Tame Impala played at Later …with Jools Holland a few weeks ago and I thought they were awesome so watching them live was added to my wish list for 2013, they will be playing in London next summer!
