Product Description

Tame Impala make psychedelic hypno-groove melodic rock music. It's intended for moving one's body to, and it's intended for keeping still and observing other forms of movement. It's bombastic but it's swirling, think of the shoulder bones of a giant striding feline creature through some kind of tunnel. Tame Impala are Kevin Parker, Dom Simper and Jay Watson. Kevin and Dom have been musical companions for a good 9 years, having met at music class in high school at age 13, sometime after Kevin had began honing his primitive self recording skills as a way of putting tune to his newly learned drum beats. They found Jay sometime last year in rural Western Australia and admired his groovebrain and corresponding wrist movement. By stroke of luck he was moving to Perth with another band and this allowed them to jam. The Tame Impala sound is one equally informed by The Beatles as it is beat poetry, by Turkish prog as it is by Turkish delight, and by English folk as much as homeless folk, and it's a breathe of fresh air that reeks of all of these at times and none at others. The EP is 5 tracks of untamed enthusiasm and unexpected delight.

Cool modern Psych from their early E.P./mini album. A less polished sound which is a just a bit rougher around the edges than "Lonerism" and none the worse for it.
If you like "Nuggets"-era Garage with hints of Revolver-esque experimentation and a dash of Stoner thrown in the mix, then this is well recommended.
At last, Pysch for the 21st Century; Turn on, download, wig-out!

Honestly, if you only listen to one new band this year, make it Tame Impala. This little EP is a majestic starter before you tuck into the feast that is the album Innerspeaker. If you like music & your ears work. i implore you to by this!!!

I am definitely a late-comer to the Tame Impala party, only getting into this band last year. But since then I've devoured both albums (Innerspeaker; Lonerism) and recenty saw them in concert (more on that later). After that show I just had to get this EP.

"Tame Impala" (2008 release; 5 tracks; 21 min.) is in the studio the one-man project of Kevin Parker who indeed plays all instruments himself. What struck me most about this EP is how raw and simpler this recording is compared to the Lonerism album. The EP is also much more guitar-oriented, with hardly any use of keyboards, again as compared to Lonerism. The best tracks on here are: the opener "Desire Be, Desire Go", which sounds immediately familiar; the closer "Slide Through My Fingers", which made me think back immediately of Pink Floyd era-Piper at the Gates; and the middle track "Half Full Glass of Wine".

I saw Tame Impala (live they are a five-some) in concert just a few weeks ago here in Ohio, and they put on a blazing set, playing many tracks from Lonerism, but also mixing in some older songs. The last song before the encore was an updated "Half Full Glass of Wine", which now is a monster track that showcases how much Tame Impala has grown in the 4+ years since this EP was released. Bottom line: this EP is worth having, reminding us of the simpler beginnings of Tame Impala.

Tracklistng:
1. "Desire Be, Desire Go" 4:10
2. "Skeleton Tiger" 4:25
3. "Half Full Glass of Wine" 4:26
4. "Forty One Mosquitoes Flying in Formation" 4:18
5. "Slide Through My Fingers" 3:20

Like the Vines, Wolfmother & Jet, recent Aussie rock exports have been overtly retro. Tame Impala do the same with late 60's psychedelia and fuzzy paisley pop, so there's a lot of Beatles, Love, Jimi Hendrix Experience & Kinks going on. No bad thing though, eh? Soaring vocals, rhythmic surges, delay-swept guitar bursts, giant hooks and kaleidoscopic stereo-panning make for a grand listening experience. Standout tracks include Skeleton Tiger which does everything I said above (with a spasticaly brill M8 & bonkers drumming) and desire be desire go, which sounds like its been ripped from Kula Shaker's might debut "K". Vintage, far-out, and cool, man.

Bought this after stumbling onto Innerspeaker and being blown away. I can only echo other reviews really. If you've heard Innerspeaker then be warned this is a much rawer, less produced version of Tame Impala but equally mindblowing and awe inspiring. This is organic music that comes from some other time and dimension, just unspeakably brilliant and hypnotic. As other reviewers have said, Tame Impala take a classic psychedelic/psych rock template and bring it bang up to date. They are simplay amazing, live and on record.
