Tame Impala, CURRENTS:★★★★ 1/2

Kevi P; wordsmith, psychedelic producer & melodic genius. Tame’s second album currents is Kevin Parkers brainchild and follows an introverts attempts to enter society and his resulting loneliness and isolation from it. Currents feels like a break up album, with opening single ‘let it happen’ functioning as an ode to rejection and following sounds such as ‘eventually’ lamenting but accepting this loss. It is a psychedelic masterpiece which manages to artfully combine modern electronics with tunes reminiscent of the bygone era of the 60’s. As all good psychedelic tracks do the nearly 8 minute journey ‘let it happen’ and the luscious multi-tracked harmonies of ‘gossip’ provide an out of worldly and out of body experience.
