Engage Hyper-Chill Mode With Tame Impala's 'Cause I'm A Man'

    Purveyors of "psychedelic hypno-groove melodic rock music," Tame Impala know how to make listeners zone out. Their debut full-length album Innerspeaker was met with intense praise from both critics and consumers and likely led to more than a few LSD induced revelations.



    Their latest release, "'Cause I'm A Man" (above) exhibits a departure from their live-instrument, decidedly Beatles-informed sound, embracing a more contemporary electronic aesthetic. Early YouTube comments are showing some distaste for the shift, but I reckon that people need time to adjust. The track feels amazing, hypnotizing the listener with the eddying bass line and deep, ethereal synth. The groove is entrancing and the washy vocals transport you to a higher plane of consciousness.

    As a man myself I can relate to the subject matter, especially the chorus, which triumphantly exclaims, "'Cause I'm a man, woman/Don't always think before I do." A tad misogynistic, maybe, but it's also campy and playful, so the reactionaries need to chill.

    Listen to "'Cause I'm A Man" above, and re-experience the ridiculously trippy video for "Feels Like We Only Go Backwards" below.
