I often pick a new album to listen based on its cover. OK, Tame Impala‘s Lonerism was rated 9 on Pitchfork. But still, when you enter a record shop, the cover is what defines the album you are going to pick, even before you start listening to it.

Lonerism

I guess the photograh of Les jardins du Luxembourg in Paris catched my eye, for some reason.

Tame Impala is an Australian band who makes awesome psychedelic rock. Lonerism is probably the best psych rock album I’ve listened to since White Fence’s Is Growing Faith, and God knows how much I love White Fence. Oh, and I love how they define their music: psychedelic hypno-groove melodic rock music. Simply awesome.

Here’s Keep on lying, probably the best song of the album, almost six minutes of pure happiness.
