Sunday seems like a good day to post a shimmering slice of psychedelia. So, here’s Tame Impala’s Beatleesque “Feels Like We Only Go Backwards” from one of the best albums of 2012, and a favorite of mine, Lonerisms.
This is a tough song to pull off live. On record, it is dreamy, ethereal, delicate and in my experience that is hard to replicate on stage. But Tame Impala manage to do a very effective version on the Jools Holland Show this past Friday night.
This song is infused with John Lennon’s vibe. Same is true for the second, “Elephant,” (with a smattering of ELO and Slade thrown in).
