Tame Impala - Innerspeaker

Availability: IN STOCK

Australia's Tame Impala have crafted an assured and accomplished debut album that integrates an array of psych rock references into a powerful whole. Innerspeaker is Kevin Parker's technicolor broadcast of the richness and complexity of his emotional landscapes, a place where words are secondary to the evocative nature of sound.

With the kaleidoscopic stereo-panning on "Why Won't You Make Up Your Mind?" or the maddening stomp on "Bold Arrow of Time", Innerspeaker demonstrates a subtle yet encompassing sense of control, never obstructing the grander motifs while still offering a variety of odd details that guide you back to the album's hooks.

Balancing an obvious reverence for their sonic forebears with subtly contemporary production tweaks, they make straddling two disparate eras feel like the most comfortable, effortless thing in the world. And that sense of unforced, unpretentious ease is fundamental to what makes Innerspeaker so simply, viscerally pleasurable. 

10 years after it's original release, Innerspeaker still proves that solitude really can be bliss.

The album features the singles: "Solitude Is Bliss", "Lucidity", "Expectation" and "Why Won't You Make Up Your Mind?"

Heavyweight double vinyl produced by Modular Recordings in 2011. Gatefold sleeve.
