Tame Impala - Currents
Tame Impala – Currents

In which Kevin Parker‘s Tame Impala make a seamless transition from psychedelic rock into psychedelic synth-infused electro-pop-disco-soul-something (let’s not get too bogged down in genres, eh?). It sounds so natural that the first time through I didn’t even notice that he’d almost abandoned his guitar – it’s still there, of course, but now it is the synths that shoulder the majority of the burden. He’s a damn good songwriter and as this album makes clear, a fantastic, meticulous producer as well.
