The Australian psych-rock ensemble Tame Impala earned some worthy attention last year with the release of their second LP, Lonerism, which ranked No. 6 on this year’s Pazz & Jop. A mix of Zombies-style harmonies and Barrett-era Floyd, the record somehow seemed even trippier and more kaleidoscopically explosive than its predecessor, 2010's Innerspeaker. Whether that has to do with the morale boost the group's mastermind, Kevin Parker, must have felt when that record was ballyhooed or the fact that maybe he just found a better stash, his loner ways are paying off. With the Growl.
