Stream Tame Impala’s New Album, ‘Currents’
We're only a couple days from the official release of the third album by Tame Impala, but why wait that long? The Australian psych-rock outfit are streaming the excellent Currents in its entirety via NPR. Listen to it below.
The album is the much-anticipated follow-up to Tame Impala's 2012 effort, Lonerism, and frontman Kevin Parker told NME it marks a sonic shift for the Perth rockers. "I wanted to make something that from the sound of it could be down at the club,” Parker said. “I just realized that I’d never heard Tame Impala played somewhere with a dancefloor, or where people were dancing. Listening to it was very much kind of a headphone, solitary experience. Which is cool, but I’ve moved on from that. I’ve always loved listening to music on my own, but there’s another side of me that is just fascinated by… like Goa trance for example – just a rave on a beach in India, you know? Where there’s not an artist to be worshipped, just someone that’s spinning the music, and it’s just this free flowing continuous energy. It was a front that I wanted to conquer, because I had conquered the solitary.”
Check out the album below and let us know what you think.
