Why does /mu/ hate Tame Impala?

i love alter ego and that's about it, thanks for reading

>>
>>55373828
I really like them OP

didn't like that new single of theirs though.
>>
Not innivative
Overrated
Etc
Still i give a shit about them, albums are not bad. Coming album would be suck though
>>
>>55373917
Why? The newest singles have been better than Lonerism.
>>
>>55373988
>Not inivative
They're the best band to illustrate the psych mindset and experience, so that's pretty fucking innovative.
>>
>>55374015
Have you listened to the Grateful Dead?
Or Pink Floyd's first two albums?
>>
why the fuck does it matter if they're not innovative? how can you listen to Mind Mischief or Apocalypse Dreams and not just enjoy the good vibes and tap your feet?
>>
>>55374051
>tap your feet?
literally the plebest thing to do while listening to music, get the fuck out of here
>>
>>55374051
Lonerism is an alright album.
>>
>>55374044
great stuff, but old as hell
>>
>>55374015
please delete this

best band currently*
my bad
>>
>>55374015
Is this cringe thread?
I mean sorry my fingers slipped but you just went full retard
>>
>>55374102
But yet they still illustrate the psych mindset and experience in a much timeless way than Tame Impala wishes to do so.
>>
>>55374015
haha oh man you're not fucking serious are you?
jesus, this is who I argue with on /mu/, fuck me
>>
Name another mainstream rock band that's doing better things than Tame Impala. Do it now. I fucking dare you.
>>
>>55374155
I don't know about timeless all their stuff especially Floyd and the deads eariler stuff is very dated all around
>>
>>55374174
Swans
>>
waaaay too popular
>>
/mu/ doesn't like anything except harsh noise, really

This wasn't a bit if you ask me

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TN1NZRnHBsI

While this has definitely aged.
>>
>>55374196
This is not a good argument, considering many people here like Pink Floyd, Beatles, Bob Dylan, and Talking Heads.
>>
>>55374015
THISSSSSSSSSS THIS THIS this.

Grateful dead, pink Floyd and the Beatles did it for their time. Tame impala does it for this generation. And it's even better. I can't stand the grateful dead, but I love the Beatles and pink Floyd and king crimson, but tame impala does the psych sound the best. Take off the nostalgia goggles. I will defend this point till I die.
>>
>>55374015
duuuuude this music is like blowing my MIIIIIND
>>
>>55374191
LOL
>>
>>55374289
To Be Kind was in the top 40 charts, Swans are mainstream as fuck
>>
>>55374000
nice trips
>>
>>55374328
album sales are not an indicator of mainstream popularity in this day and age anon

sure, they are very well known, but to call them "mainstream as fuck" is a bit much
>>
>>55374278
Anco did that for "this generation (kek) than Tame Impala.
>>
Tame Impala (I think it's one dude?) just uses the basic psych rock formula that's been around since the 60's. What you end up with is an enjoyable listen but nothing really new. He does it better than a lot though.
>>
>>55373828
i don't 'hate them', but tame impala is just so damn inoffensive and dull which is a huge turnoff for a lot of listeners
>>
>>55374440
anco peaked with spirit gone vanished and that was in 1999-2000 not this generation...
>>
>>55374503
dull? Wat their music just jumps right at you into your soul, so colorful and alive
>>
>>55374505
So you like Lonerism but dislike the rest of Anco's discography?

I'll bite though, Lonerism is a far better than MPP.
>>
Tame Impala is the millenials hope for good psych /thread
>>
I don't HATE them, they just get worse after repeated listens. Nothing spectacular or original.

Would rather listen to Holydrug Couple or Follakzoid for neo-psych
>>
>>55374611
Unknown Mortal Orchestra? Real Estate/Ducktails? Foxygen? Temples? Thee Oh Sees?

just to name a few.
>>
what is it with the sudden influx of Tame Impala? There's nothing notable about them, they're as uninteresting as Black Keys.

I like the rest of ancos stuff but spirit vanished is Avery Tare and panda bear best, easily, except maybe strawberry jam
>>
>>55373828
/mu/ doesn't, a few people on /mu/ do
I love Tame Impala, I think there's nothing wrong with bringing a new generation of listeners to psych rock/pop
>>
>>55374641

I love all of these, but there's a certain quality to Tame that I think exceeds them, in terms of accessibility that doesn't compromise quality songwriting & production.

Real Estate are excellent but monotonous, Foxygen turned to shit with whatever that Starpower crap was, Temples I unfortunately expect to be a one-trick pony, as much as I like them.

listen to Unknown Mortal Orchesta- Multi-Love
and Pond- Man It Feels Like Space Again and of Montreal- Aureate Gloom

feel the funk
>>
>>55374821
MULTI-LOVE IS SO FUCKING GOOD
>>
>>55374821

Loved MIFLSA (but I treat them as a Tame-relative because band members), yet to listen to the entirety of UMO's LP3, and I'm just getting into Of Montreal right now.
>>
>>55374872
just for the funk, id listen to LP3 and aureate gloom right now
>>
>>55374872
i really see them as different bands, as Tame Impala is pretty much a fully Kevin Parker-inspired project, while Pond is a collaboration of minds, and Kevin isn't part of that collab
>>
Tame Impala is hands down the best band in the world right now. They are not pretty good, they are pretty incredible. But more than just how good they are, They represent the first ripple in a massive change that we are about to go through musically as well as culturally. I think that over the course of the next 10 years we are going to see a sort of mini-renaissance similar to what we saw in the late 50s-60s post war. With pot and gay marriage soon to be legal federally its gonna be a whole new world. 2012 end of the world isn't the end of human life, its the end of one way of thinking and the start of another. Pot...cash...crop...money! As someone already said here on Reddit, The united states will be the only country in the world were pot is legal federally. We are gonna have jobs again, and money to burn. Money to spend on art and music. In a sense, a need will be created for GOOD art and music. Not something that is coldy manufactured by hitmakers. Tame Impala is leading the charge! They are proving that people CAN tell the difference between real and manufactured music! Im not saying Tame Impala are the next Beatles but they are making enough waves to make change. Moral of story, Tame Impala Rocks!!!! They (kevin park) are making real beautiful music that only happens when a talented person commits a lot of time to something that they are passonate about. Tame Impala is a real life "bedroom" band, they way it is meant to be.
>>
>>55374872
you should listen to WAND - Golem

I love Tame Impala and this is the worst thing I've ever seen
are you 15?
>>
>>55374901
im on it

>>55374926
true, yet you can't shake off the feel that it's very similar minds in the works
>>
>>55373828
Maybe it's too easy too like and and looks like it copies old stuff.

But I seriously can't get this level of feels with old psych. I don't care what /mu/ thinks, the feels tell me Tame Impala is fucking good.
>>
>>55374926
Kevin Parker produced man it feels like space again, they're totally related

the only difference between tame impala fanboys and pink floyd fanboys is that pink floyd fanboys didn't have the internet growing up so their shit-talking of other bands wasn't heard as much
>>
>>55375192
since when do tame impala fans shit talk other bands?
>>
>>55373849
reddit likes multi-love too
>>
>>55373828
People hate on TI for being too accessible, as if Multi-Love isn't a fucking pop song
THERE'S NOTHING WRONG WITH POP MUSIC
>>
>>55374015
>Innovatie
Hey man, I like Tame Impala and there's nothing innovative stuff that they do
>>
>>55375209
did you even read anything in this thread? tard
>>
>>55375326
I guess you don't get the psych experience, it's alright
>>
>>55375326
Tame Impala isn't a re-hash, I think anyone who's familar with psych rock can attest to that
they're like psych 2.0, whereas bands like Temples are just straight up ripping off psych pop acts
>>
>>55375360
No, I know what you mean but there's nothing new on the table besides the nostalgia
>>
>>55375372
>implying TI aren't just ripping off pysch pop acts

lol wtf, how do people get this stupid ?

also temples > lame impala

>>55374440
anco is not psych rock, they're way more experimental and incorporate electronic music so much more than tame impala does
>>
>>55375408
yes because thats all i said is i love the beatles.
good job anon
heres your response.
>>
>>55375377
nostalgia for what? I don't live in the past, tame impalas music is incredibly modern sounding, vulnerable, and genuine. I'm sorry all you can do is spot influences and dismiss like a try hard
>>
>>55375372
I'm not saying they're rehash, im just saying that there's nothing new on the table when it comes to their music but in a positive way.

> Temples are just straight up ripping off psych pop acts
If so then they ripped of bands poorly

electronics can't be psych? LMFAO what is tangerine dream
>>
>>55375406
at this point it just comes down to opinion, but I don't know how you can like Temples and not Tame Impala. Temples is just as accessible, but less psychedelic
you're probably a contrarian who doesn't like them because they've got more buzz and praise
>>
>>55375409
mpp is psych rock/ psych pop
>>
>>55375469
don't listen to that guy, he's clueless, anon, you have better taste
temples is alright, tame impala has better hooks, better mixing, etc
>>
>>55375462
I didn't say electronics couldn't be psych, I said psych ROCK
obviously the more electronic elements you add, the more you deviate from the rock sound
>>
>>55375503
Ok well the beach boys were also labeled a rock band even though in their hippie career they used very little guitars
>>
>>55375478
MPP is one of my favorite albums, and it's so not psych rock
I don't even think Feels or Strawberry Jam could qualify as psych rock, it strays too far from the psych rock umbrella
I'm caring about labels too much, but ultimately AnCo is more aptly described as a psych-pop or neo-psychedelia group
>>
>>55375524
is this a joke lol
they're also more commonly labeled as pop by the way
>>
>>55375566
no, check it again, even Wikipedia considers them a rock band. they are technically a pop group you're right but they incorporate the rock and roll elements

their early stuff is chalked fulll of guitars
that bright surf guitar sound is signature beach boys
>>
>>55375623
I'm just saying the general idea was they were a surf rock band then a psych one, and finally pop/rock
>>
>>55375438
Wow, I didn't say anything that they are a try hard. I like them but they don't really innovate anything much. Can't believe this is what TI fans on the internet
>>
>>55375835
that's one TI fan and they're prob underage
they have a point, but noticing influences isn't a try-hard thing at all
>>
>>55375600
>wikipedia considers them a rock band

AND SO IT WAS, AS TOLD BY MUSIC GOD WIKIPEDIA
>>
>>55375854
Just noticed that the influx of TI fans came in after their release Lonerism and before that it was cool to talk with them here at /mu/ and last.fm. Fandom shits at everything....
>>
>>55375903
KEK
>>55375926
more fans means more bad fans too
10 fans with 1 bad apple isn't as loud as 10 bad apples in a 100 person fanbase

I choose you SULA BASSANA
It cast's psychic wave on Tame Impale
It's super effective

it has nothing to do with fans either you get it or you don't
