Tame Impala are a psychedelic rock band from Perth, Australia. They are signed to Modular Records. The band came to prominence in 2010 with the release of their first debut album, Innerspeaker.
Their name refers to the impala, a medium sized antelope. They like to see themselves as a steady flowing psychedelic groove rock band that emphasizes dream-like melody.
The definition of psychedelic rock. The genre is quite vague as I've heard all kinds of music called "psychedelic rock" and often it doesn't seem very psychedelic and other times not really rockish, but Innerspeaker does both things to the absolute max.
Tame Impala's sophmore album came out in the states October 9th, 2012. With a new style of psyechedellic music - more pop than rock, Lonerism has already gotten rave reviews including a perfect score from Guardian and a 9/10 from Pitchfork.
