stream new tame impala single 'elephant'

 

By now you’ve probably heard the first proper single from Tame Impala‘s upcoming sophomore album Lonerism, “Elephant.” But even if you haven’t — you kind of have, as it’s a psychedelic sampler with elements of The Beatles, Cream, Black Sabbath and Pink Floyd.

Not that that’s a bad thing. With producer Dave Fridmann (Mercury Rev, The Flaming Lips, MGMT), these Aussies have found a niche that’s less theatrical than fellow acid-tripping countrymen Wolfmother. “Elephant” chugs along a bit aimlessly at first, but once you’re warned “here it comes” it sure as hell does:

Lonerism arrives October 9th on Modular. Check out “Apocalypse Dreams” here.
