West Australian psych warriors Tame Impala return with their new album `Lonerism.`
Again recorded and produced almost entirely by Kevin Parker in studios, planes, hotels and homes around the world, and mixed by the trailblazing Dave Fridmann (Flaming Lips / MGMT), `Lonerism`s sound is not so much reinvented as completely redrafted and stretched way, way out.
It`s a quantum leap forward for the band, the seeds of which were sown shortly after their debut album `Innerspeaker` was mixed. Featuring twelve new songs, Lonerism`s most apparent advance is in its synthesizers - there`s swathes of them cutting melancosmic shapes across almost every track. There`s still the searing guitar lines, bouldering drums, free bass and of course Parker`s voice, but now there`s heavily mournful pads and sunshine lead lines from an army of analogue explorers in the mix.
