Tame Impala – “Apocalypse Dreams”

By Tom Breihan / July 9, 2012 - 9:05 am

Blissed-out Aussie psych-rockers Tame Impala landed on our collective radar two years ago with their Innerspeaker album, and now they’re set to follow it up with the new album Lonerism, set to arrive sometime in October. Frontman Kevin Parker produced it, with indie-psych kingpin Dave Fridmann mixing. The first single is called “Elephant,” but we don’t get to hear that one just yet. Instead, the band has shared a spaced-out six-minute album track called “Apocalypse Dreams,” which ups the ante on Innerspeaker‘s melodic float. They’ve also announced a bunch of tour dates around the globe. Below, use the widget to download the song and check out the tour dates.
