Artist: Tame Impala
Label: Modular Recordings
Genre: Indie Rock / Psychedelic Rock
Notes: Second single from 1st LP
Analysis: Tame Impala are a psychedelic indie outfit who had sort of a mini-breakout this year, being praised all over for their debut album Innerspeaker. ‘Lucidity’s video is a dizzying bird’s eye view of the band playing in a desert, as the POV gets farther and farther away, eventually reaching as far as the Earth’s atmosphere before falling back down. I’m not sure about the long-term future of these guys, but ‘Lucidity’ is a pretty decent jam.
