Tame Impala won a Brit Award last night for Best International Group but I’m finding this latest album (Currents) to be rather overly processed for my tastes. When I saw them live in Sydney a few years ago they were much weirder. It’s not like I wish them to be trapped in some melodic Psychedelic chaos for eternity, I’m a fan and I really have no problem with any band going off in any direction that suits them, satisfies their tastes or their evolution, but the machines sound stiff rather than appealingly Electronic, the sounds are so smooth that they make Beyonce sound like Black Sabbath. I understand that it is very catchy and I will listen to the album a few more times and try and warm to it. I want to like them Ha Ha, I have followed them from early on and shall stick with them, I don’t have to like everything to remain a fan. What do you think?
All the best to the band for their success.
