Editors’ Notes

Australian musician Kevin Parker is a bit of a musical savant. Although Tame Impala tours as a band, the group's psychedelic trip-pop is pretty much due to Parker's writing, playing, and even producing. Parker sidekick and collaborator Jay Watson shares songwriting credit this time around, notably on two standout tracks: "Elephant" (an impossibly delectable blend of Sabbath stomp and Syd Barrett trippy-ness) and "Apocalypse Dreams" (a gorgeous, chameleonic tune that reflects Parker's noted influence, Todd Rundgren). And though it's hard to hear the opening "Be Above It" or "Mind Mischief" without detecting some Revolver- and Sgt. Pepper's–era Beatles in the songs' DNA, Lonerism is loaded with more synthesizers and ambient sounds than guitars. It's definitely a more pop-oriented album than the crunchy Innerspeaker, and it reveals another compelling side to Tame Impala. (Check out Watson's other band POND, and its LP Beard, Wives, Denim, for another dose of satisfying psych-rock.)

Customer Reviews

I found what I was looking for.....

You know that place that only music can take you? Somewhere other than where you are, or makes where you are seem unreal. Feels like we're only going backwards just took me there, and I loved the ride.

Altered state minus the…

I’m surprised this album hasn’t received more reviews. It’s evident that Kevin Parker’s music comes from a place that can’t be simply defined by terms such as, psychedelic rock, shoegaze, etc. It is a strong album from start to finish. Just bought it on vinyl as well…

Slippery Bliss

This album is like a great acid trip you can return to any time you want. Songs so good they put a stupid happy smile on your face and make you want to thank Kevin Parker for putting this into the world.
