We tried to get these Aussie imports into the Electraplay studio for a 4-song set and interview but the timing was too tight … maybe we’ll grab them later this year when they come back to the U.S.
If you haven’t yet been hipped to Tame Impala, it’s understandable, as they are relatively new to this part of the world but their debut, Innerspeaker, undoubtedly will top a number of “Best of 2010” lists before all is said and done (definitely earned a spot on my list).
I’ve already compiled a list of comparisons but think you should make your own list after checking out this live performance the band filmed for Yours Truly.
I’ll be sitting down for a chat with these guys this afternoon before they head over to the LC to open the almost-sold-out MGMT show. Be on the lookout for that interview in the next couple of days.
