Tame Impala: Albert Hall, Manchester
Dave Simpson, The Guardian, 13 July 2014
IT MUST BE STRANGE for Tame Impala's Kevin Parker to have written an album about isolation and loneliness and then be required to share his innermost feelings with the entire world. However, he has developed a crafty solution to the exposure conundrum presented after Lonerism became one of 2012's most talked about albums. Taking the stage amid a psychedelic light show of strobes and electric circles, he is drenched in such a blurry dazzle that you could watch him for 90 minutes and have difficulty recognising him outside afterwards.
