Hello Montreal, Are You Ready to RAWWWWKKKK With Tame Impala?

Posted by Greg / April 30, 2011

Something about warm sun, patios, beers outside and BBQ'n gets me in the mood for psych rock. Chalk it up to the genre's 70s aesthetic with its big sunglasses and unbuttoned shirts. Thank goodness Tame Impala are rolling through Montreal just in time for the weather that suits them best. Spawned from the hot soil of Australia, Tame Impala are one of the year's top rock contenders these days, with their debut album, Innerspeaker, blowing minds and speakers around the world with a fury and creativity all their own.

How could I say anything less of a band that I initially mistook for Black Sabbath? Yes, that actually happened - I was sitting in Cafe Pi reading a book and heard "The Bold Arrow of Time" playing quietly in the background. The sick riffing, the fuzzy guitar tones took me back to a long gone era of rock with rough edges smoothed out by psychedelic exploration. Unrestrained in every way without losing the listener. Pick up a book and a coffee and relive that moment with me right now:Totally sick, right? They capture everything I want from their type of music. And as you would expect, they are intense live too. Check it:
I dare anyone to think of a better way to spend their warm Saturday night. This is the kind of show that you'll wish you went to. So do a favor to your future self and just go, okay? Start by having some beers in Square St. Louis just up the street... but if the cops catch you, don't say I told you to.
