Tame Impala - The Slow Rush

Record of the Week is The Slow Rush, the return after a five-year absence from Kevin Parker's Tame Impala. It has been meticulously produced, you only need to take a few minutes to listen deep into the dense and swirling production to get a feel for how much thought has gone into its vivid production. It's another bold step away from their earliest psych-rock incarnation with a pretty sparse use of guitars, The Slow Rush is instead crafted with woozing synths that chug and glimmer to pretty glorious effect. Pop songs full of hooks and super smart production, just wait for the sun to come out this year and people will be playing this to death.

+ Limited Indie shop version double LP pressed on heavyweight red and light blue coloured vinyl.
