    First there was Jet then Wolfmother and now Tame Impala. the classic rock and roll sound has become the key to success in the Australian alternative scene, which in the case of Jet and Wolfmother has led to worldwide success. Tame Impala bring a great 8 track sound to the table, you can very much tell from their debut EP that they have grown up listening to Led Zeppelin, Cream and psychedelic rock. They are signed to the same record label (Modular Recordings) as Cut Copy and Wolfmother and internationally the Klaxons.

    Here are 3 songs from their debut EP. it was released in October 2008 and went to the top of the local EP charts.

    i'm sure fans of the Beatles, early Pink Floyd and Led Zep will thoroughly enjoy this.

    thats an incredible live concert from the band. people who enjoy jam bands will love it. i'm still predicting that these guys will go big things next year.

    I'm sorry but I'm just not of fan of these guys at all.
    They were the opener for The Living End which wasn't really a great idea.
    The crowd cheered the most when the left the stage.

    jam bands aren't really appreciated by the general public. the living end has a pretty mainstream following especially after this latest album.

    You're going to see them? Awesome. Wait are they touring? I might go see them to. Only they'll probably play in an 18 place so...bit of a problem.

    Yeah you cant really judge a band by how Living End fans feel about them. I was a little disappointed when I bought their latest album.

    Still haven't listened to them

    Modern day 70's inspired Australian psychedelic rock band with a singer that sounds like John Lennon.

    New single - Solitude Is Bliss

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vxvf7gR4-2M"]YouTube- Tame Impala - Solitude is Bliss[/ame]

    I've been playing their s/titled EP like blinking crazy these last few months, it's a work of genius. The album Innerspeaker less so, but is still really damn good and well worth a listen.

    Here's something from pitchfork:
    Solitude is Bliss
    Runway House City Clouds



    I hope there's someone else out there digging this shit...

    Reverb? It's flanger isnt it? They seem to use the shit out of that function to get that wavering sound...

    Loving the crap out of this band. Listening to the album now, bought it last Friday. Brilliant!

    Wait until Deaths_Friend finds this forum he loves them more!!

    but im alright with having 2 about this great band.

    Innerspeaker is easily the best aussie album since In Ghost Colours possibly even the amazing Cruel Guards. if i get sick of studying later tonight i might write a full review of the album on this thread
