Pond – “You Broke My Cool” Video

Pond, the sunkissed Aussie psych-guitar blazers whose three members include two Tame Impalas, have a new split-screen-heavy video for their song "You Broke My Cool." The band members and their friends shot the clip in the Perth countryside while they were recording debut album Beard Wives Denim, and from the look of things, they spent… More »

Pond – “Pond In A Park”

Beard Wives Denim, the new album from sandblasted Aussie psych trio and Tame Impala sister band Pond, arrives today. But the track below, "Pond In A Park," isn't on the album. It's nearly seven minutes of pillowy guitar fuzz and spaced-out harmonies, and it's streaming after the jump. More »

Stream Pond Beard Wives Denim

Aussie psych-rock power-trio Pond, who share two members with Tame Impala, have spent the past few months convincing us that they know how to conjure a fluttery, sun-dazed desert-rock vibe that would do their sister band proud; check the songs "Fantastic Explosion Of Time," "Moth Wings," and "Mystery" for evidence. Right now,… More »

Pond – “Fantastic Explosion Of Time”

Australia's Pond features two members of Tame Impala's touring band -- Nick Allbrook and Jay Watson -- so it's no coincidence that their music exudes the same warm, psych-y feel. The first track from their forthcoming Beard Wives Denim, "Fantastic Explosion Of Time," is an uptempo jammer, riding squealing guitar lines into fuzzy breakdowns. More »

Tame Impala – “Lucidity” (Pilooski Remix)

This remix by French producer Pilooski is subtle in a lot of ways, leaving in a good deal of Stereogum40 band Tame Impala's fuzzy lead guitar hook. But I really like the screams he used to punctuate each line. No word yet if this spacey remix will appear as a b-side to any upcoming… More »

POND – “Sunlight Cardigan” (Stereogum Premiere)

Australian trio POND share a member with Tame Impala -- you're bound to dig them if you're into that other crew's expansive MGMT-meets-Lennon psychedelia. The piano-streaked "Sunlight Cardigan" appears on their fourth collection FROND, an album that mixes cosmic space-outs ("The Place Behind A Duck") and duskier nighttime excursions ("Torn Asunder") with plenty of… More »

Tame Impala – “Lucidity” Video

Robert Hales orchestrated this video for Stereogum40 grads Tame Impala's "Lucidity" "500 odd kilometers" outside Melbourne, around a small town called Mildura: Cameras were placed inside weather balloons, launched upwards. If you believe in back-stories, there's more. More »

Stereogum’s 40 Best New Bands Of 2010

With fall on the horizon, we're escaping a slow summer and shifting into that final, fertile phase of the music year's release cycle.

Tame Impala @ Glasslands, Brooklyn 6/25/10

Innerspeaker, outer space. That Tame Impala's sold-out show count in NYC numbered three (not counting the word-of-mouth psilocybic riff-fest at Coco66) was totally appropriate -- that's a triptych of live shows, emphasis on the trip and ticks. Their YoursTruly session set a proper scene for their LP's aural flush -- remote location, pastoral… More »

Tame Impala – “Solitude Is Bliss (Canyons Remix)”

It's Tame Impala week in the city -- the band rolling around the city for three shows (watch this, don't miss) and various peripheral appearances, like a DJ set at that sure to be bananas Vice Creator's Project jump-off at Milk Studios this Saturday -- commemorated here with another remix on their Innerspeaker standout… More »

Tame Impala Does “Solitude Is Bliss” & “Why Don’t You Make Up Your Mind?” For Yours Truly

Aussie psychtronauts (wow, sorry) are here, in the States, playing shows with MGMT and revving up for a headlining trio of shows in NYC later this month that will be blogged to death. This is because the kaleidoscopic flangery of Cream riffs and Dungen pastoral swirl called Innerspeaker is incredibly immersive and fairly ruling, and… More »

Tame Impala – “Solitude Is Bliss (Mickey Moonlight Remix)” (Stereogum Premiere)

At the beginning of the month we gave you the video for Tame Impala's psychedelic Innerspeaker pop nugget "Solitude Is Bliss." The clip found a protagonist dancing away an apocalypse, getting hypnotized by confetti (or drifting remnants), shooting folks with his fingers, and punching dogs. If you watch it again soundtracked by this echoing,… More »

Tame Impala – “Solitude Is Bliss” Video

On the strength of their Innerspeaker LP and their shared taste in hairstyles, Australian psych-pop quartet Tame Impala are on tour in support of MGMT later this month. Our post about the drifting, spacious "Runway, Houses, City, Clouds" included a number of drug references. Initially the protagonist of this Megafore-directed video for "Solitude I… More »

Tame Impala – “Runway, Houses, City, Clouds”

Good things happening for Aussie label Modular this year (remember Jonathan Boulet toward the end of last, start anticipating an Avalanches record in 2010), kicking off with the four-piece psych cadets Tame Impala and their Innerspeaker LP. Think wafting, kaleidoscopic harmonies and flangey guitar parts one step to the left of Dungen, here… More »
