Australia’s Tame Impala continue to rise in fame as they ride the current surge of psychedelic music which seems to be growing for 2013. Their latest video for ‘Mind Mischief’ from their award winning second album ‘Lonerism‘ was put together by Urban Outfitters.

The Tame Impala sound is one equally informed by The Beatles as it is beat poetry, by Turkish prog as it is by Turkish delight, and by English folk as much as homeless folk, and it’s a breathe of fresh air that reeks of all of these at times and none at others.
