Who: Tame Impala
Where: Recorded in Western Australia’s port city of Fremantle at Kevin Parker’s home studio.
Why: Headline reads: “World’s Most Successful Modern Day Psychedelic Rock Band Sells Out”. Nowadays nothing sells like success, an era in which even the very concept of “selling out” seems foreign, downright alien even. The words themselves “sold out” feel odd and strange on the new millennial tongue. And so the tired old debate continues: Is rock dead? No. It’s just trying to get laid.
When: Released July 17, 2015
