Band: Tame Impala
Song: Feels Like We Only Go Backwards
Keeping up with yesterday’s theme of being behind the times, here’s a gem from Tame Impala’s Lonerism album. These guys have a great psychedelic Beatlesy-vibe to them. Like the Beatles, Flaming Lips and countless others, their sound fits all criteria for great “drug music”; it’s experimental, unpredictable and sonically adventurous but doesn’t forgo hooks for abstract ambiance or endless noodling. Plenty of bands put out stuff that is more immediately accessible, but music like this that often ends up providing the most rewarding listening experience. Enjoy.
