It might be winter in their home country, but Australian psych-rockers Tame Impala have shared some summer jams just in time for the other side of the globe’s warmest months. On the follow-up to their 2010 debut, Innerspeaker, frontman Kevin Parker took the reins in the studio, recording Lonerism with acclaimed producer Dave Fridmann (Flaming Lips, Sleater-Kinney) mixing. The full record arrives Stateside this October 9, preceded by the first single, “Elephant,” and an extended teaser cut that’s been on repeat around here since last week, “Apocalypse Dreams.”
Also brand new from Tame Impala is their contribution to the new Fleetwood Mac tribute record. We’ve heard a number of artists pay homage to Stevie Nicks-led singles so far, but now Lindsey Buckingham gets his due with “That’s All For Everyone.” Even as a longtime Tusk fan, this one’s hitting the spot a bit more than the original at the moment. Hear Parker & Co. make the 1979 track their own — along with LP details and an “Apocalypose Dreams” stream — after the jump.
