New Tame Impala – “Elephant”

Lonerism, the new album from one of my favorite spaced-out psych rockers, the ever-casual Tame Impala, is set to drop October 9th here in the States. This is the first official single, set for an August release. It’s been a long time since I saw these guys at the old Emo’s outdoor stage (so long ago, in fact, that particular venue doesn’t exist anymore), but hopefully these guys will have a slew of tour dates to announce soon, including a stop here in Austin. Maybe a late lineup addition to Fun Fun Fun?

I also do it to introduce you cool cats to tunes you may have missed independently.
