Nights at the Roundtable with the high priests of Modern Day Psychedelia, Tame Impala and a track off their debut album Innerspeaker, "I Don't Really Mind".
December 15, 2011

Tame Impala - safe as milk. . . . or not.

Continuing our romp through Modern Day Psychedelia (last night we did Jesse Sykes & The Sweet Hereafter, in case you missed it) it occurred to me that I haven't played any Tame Impala yet. The album's been out for a little less than a year and I don't know how I missed it, but this band from Perth Australia is f-ing amazing.

So tonight's track is off their debut album Innerspeaker. I Don't Really Mind is a sampling of what they're up to. They were a huge hit at last years SXSW and have been seen doing live gigs at KCRW. They're currently back in Perth, but I suspect they will be hitting the road at the start of the new year and if they make it back over to the States, I would really try and check them out if I were you. They've gotten a lot of good word of mouth and it's all justified. In the meantime, check out their site and pick up their album along with their debut ep and two singles they currently have available.

You can never get enough of having your mind twisted - trust me on this one.
