Let It Happen
Label: Universal Music Australia Pty. Ltd.
Tame Impala's third album immerses Kevin Parker's gleaming psychedelic melodies in dense, throbbing production that lovingly preserves the edges of each sound even as they swirl into an electronic soup. Crisp finger-snaps ride the meditative buzz of "Let It Happen," distant vocals filter from underneath the clear and vivid drums of "New Person, Same Old Mistakes," and everywhere spidery licks of guitar are subordinated to the thick bass that drives the songs' melodies and the album's loping groove.
