Tame Impala

Tame Impala - Desire Be Desire Go
Tame Impala - Solitude Is Bliss

Man, let's hear it for that groovy, nostalgic brit-pop aesthetic, 'cause Innerspeaker is absolutely soaking it in. Think catchy, lo-fi guitar hooks and drugged-out, psychedelic soundscapes combined with generous doses of reverb and feedback... don't worry - the melodies absolutely shine in spite of the overwhelming fuzz and dissonance they're interacting with. The result is a delicious collection of retro psych-rock with an infectious, textually kaleidoscopic sound. It's a good thing it's not fattening.

Innerspeaker will be released on June 8th (U.S.), courtesy of Modular
