Artist of the Week on Musikki – Tame Impala

Tame Impala is an Australian psychedelic rock band led by Kevin Parker.  Born from the ashes of the Dee Dee Dums, they signed to Modular Recordings in 2008 and released their first EP in the same year. In 2010, they released their first full length, “Innerspeaker”. Their debut album was acclaimed by fans and critics, which rose great expectations for their second effort. On October 5th, they released Lonerism and no one was defrauded. After a promising debut the band delivered yet another brilliant record.
