Best Bands of 2010 HUMMINGBIRD AWARD: #17 Tame Impala

8 Dec

Best Bands of 2010 HUMMINGBIRD AWARD: #17 Tame Impala

I love Dungen. I loved the classic 70’s heavy deep sound of classic Sabbath. I actually enjoyed the Swedish, who the hell needs English when the music surrounding the vocals were this good. So when listening to Perth’s own Tame Impala this year, I couldn’t help but notice the similarities. Where Dungen may be more Sabbath, Tame Impala takes off with heavier beats, a more stylistic approach to the vocals. Oh and they do sing in English. We love Tame Impala here at NBD.
