More Info:

Cocooned away inside walls of psychedelic fuzz in Western Australia they re-created their preferred period one song at a time with the aid of gear and production techniques that sounded like they hadn't been dusted off since 1968.

Reviews:

By Matt Campbell

I stumbled upon Tame Impala as a result of social networking actually working. A friend posted this on another friend’s page, and BOOM! ... new music for Mr. Campbell! Another friend also mentioned this to me the old fashioned way, word of mouth. So, between the two, I had no choice but to check it out.

At first I thought it was your run of the mill indie/psychedelic/space rock. Then when you get three or four songs in you realize there is something special about this, something different that you can't quite figure out at first. Maybe it’s their old school, Beatles-esque vocal melodies and harmonies ("Mind Mischief"). Or maybe it’s the drum parts that feel like they were made up on the spot ("Endors Toi"). The best way for me to describe the sound of Lonerism is to think of a three-story building. Now imagine you are on one of those old-school elevators that looks like a gate, no walls, just iron. First floor is simple '60s, Beatles/Monkees/Beach Boys pop. Second floor is a room full of '80s synth and guitar tones ("Nothing That Has Happened So Far Has Been Anything We Could Control"). The third floor has MGMT and Beach House jamming. Now imagine this, the elevator travels up and down the building, never stopping on a floor. Since it's an old school elevator, you can hear each floor in all its glory mixed together to create Lonerism. Before you know it, you've been on the elevator for 3 hours.

Grade: There is something about that girl next door, I can't quite put my finger on it, but she is different.
