Tame Impala/Kuroma

When: Thu., June 4, 8 p.m. 2015

Australian psych outfit Tame Impala raised plenty of eyebrows with their 2010 debut (Innerspeaker), but it was 2012’s Lonerism that dragged the fans out of their basement recording studios in droves. With a distinctly John Lennon-on-acid vibe, Tame Impala has proven adept at blending old and new, traditional songwriting chops and experimental studio techniques. The band’s new album will drop in mid-July. Lead single “Cause I’m a Man” is catching some nice play in the blogosphere; it’s a tune that sets the band’s sound in a late-night lounge atmosphere. It’s druggy, groovy, spacey. Frontman Kevin Parker said in interviews ahead of the single release: “I wouldn't say making psychedelic music is my focus. That's not the modus operandi for Tame Impala. It's about making music that moves people.” (Eric Sandy)
