"I want to bring it back to just being about the music that we are playing, about the instruments, the guitar, the bass, the drums and these personalities.
I have this strong feeling that the next album should be something that really does strip away the additional things that we've experimented with on the last two albums, which is electronics, symphonics and orchestral work and all that kind of stuff. I kind of feel like it will be nice to reconnect and remind ourselves of just the basics of who we are."
Thank fuck. It's not to say I didn't enjoy the last two albums, but I definitely enjoyed them far less than everything else they've released.
"Born in LA at a Doors show" best thing I've ever read. Haha.
Despite some serious pushing at the beginning which caused several girls infront of me to bail mid first song, the crowd was great. I noticed a lot of people singing along to the congrats songs which made my heart happy, not so many for the new stuff but that will come. I ended up in a group of really nice guys who were SO happy during siberian breaks it was the cutest thing, they were also super enthusiastic dancers which was fun. It was really nice to see people getting excited for every song, not just the big 3.
They really do sound amazing these days. The lights and visuals were fantastic, you can really tell they've worked hard on their live show, huge improvements from the first time I saw them over 3 years ago. The new songs are so so beautiful live, introspection in particular seemed to have a whole other element to it live.
They make me so happy. I haven't felt this happy in ages.
that would be huge!
lala and i had a conversation about tame and mgmt
at the impala concert
about their imminent success
but the more i think about it
i used to think mgmt were like the new pink floyd
i love to compare
and now i'm not sure... it's like they're just The Management
which is its own huge thing
i should've learned my lesson about comparisons
but now i'm feeling like
tame impala is
*speaking in cyclical novelties*
meh but anyway, they deserve a grammy for the work they've put in. their live show is fucking insanely good. the album is immaculate. the louder you play it the better it sounds.
