Tame Impala- "Elephant"

New Musicadmin2 Comments

Tame Impala drops a new track from its forthcoming album, Lonerism, which is looking at an October 9th release in the US right now via Modular People. The Australian band's throwback sound feels incredibly punchy on this new track titled "Elephant." The guitars keep a steady, rock hard groove with some fuzzy distortion on 'em. The drums sound fantastic, and make it impossible to sit still during this 3-minute piece of vintage stoner rock bliss.

The organ is a great touch as well, and the more I listen to the track, the more it grows on me. Yeah, I wasn't a huge fan of the band's last album, which is mostly due to how steeped in Beatles worship it was, but I'm ready to enjoy Lonerism if the tracks bring a nice variety of sounds and a more distinct angle.
