Today's Quick Mention: If you have
nothing going on, or the opportunity to skip out of
work early presents itself, I highly recommend
heading down to
at 5pm to see my friends the
play. They just put out an LP titled Plague,
and it's a good one.
I really love Tame Impala. The band's last
album, Innerspeaker, was an all around great
listen that placed near the top of my year-end list
back in 2010, and I can't help but hope that their
upcoming full length will be even better. The
effort is titled Lonerism, and you'll be able
to snatch up at some point in October via Modular.
Impala - Apocalypse Dreams:
Releasing a swirling six minute slab of pure psych as the
first taste off a highly anticipated album is probably not
what I would advise, but I like that they did it.
Mainly because this band is just fantastic at making the
sort of music that's easy to get lost in, and them
reassuring me that this approach isn't going away is sort of
nice. Now, grab headphones and prepare to zone out.
