Tame Impala Returns With A Hazy 'Apocalypse Dream'
  • MONDAY, JULY 09, 2012

  • Posted by: Joe Puglisi

Australian pysch-rockers Tame Impala craft tunes full of lilting, swirly riffs and enough fuzzy vocals to make you feel like you're in some sort of lucid dreamscape. That's why we can't wait for Lonerism, the band's next LP, due in October via Modular. Our first taste of the new collection comes in the form of "Apocalypse Dreams," a righteously Impala romp through their standard sonic psychedelia. Download it below.

According to the press release, the band's new collection features a notable advance in the band's use of synthesizers -- "swathes of them," to be exact. Just keep in mind it'll be hard to delineate between noises while their smoldering riffs swirl around in your ear canal.

Neon Indian may wish he had dropped acid with you, but Tame Impala basically puts it in your mouth and tells you to swallow. HERE WE GO MONDAY!
