Sophomore Album from Australian Tame Impala // Lonerism
In the proverbial fight to the Album of the Year award, Tame Impala has released there long awaited sophomore album Lonerism.
A year ago I assumed/concluded that Australia’s Tame Impala would not be able to succeed after their bountiful 2010 debut Innerspeaker. I’ve, in fact, come to love this album thoroughly more than their former release. Only if every sophomore record were such quality.
Best Said: The songs of Lonerism, when only fragments of a given lyric can be discerned, convey a sense of walls being built; of an arm’s length being extended. They’re not a collection of psychedelic freakouts so much as a collection of controlled psychedelic slow-burns — though the fat, swirling guitars in “Endors Toi” would make Swervedriver proud — Lonerism makes alienation and introversion sound both alluring and, ironically, inviting.
