What: Lonerism by Tame Impala.
When: October 5 through Modular Recordings.
Key notes: Second album from the Kevin Parker-fronted outfit, following 2010 debut Innerspeaker, which took out our Critics and Readers polls for that year. Like Innerspeaker, Lonerism was recorded and produced almost entirely by frontman Kevin Parker in "studios, planes, hotels and homes around the world", and later mixed by Dave Fridmann (Flaming Lips, MGMT). Features cover image by collaborator Leif Podhajsky and forthcoming single ‘Elephant’.
From the presser: “Lonerism’s most apparent advance is in its synthesizers – there’s swathes of them cutting melancosmic shapes across almost every track. There’s still the searing guitar lines, bouldering drums, free bass and of course Parker’s voice, but now there’s heavily mournful pads and sunshine lead lines from an army of analogue explorers in the mix.”
