As for those end of year lists: 'Lonerism' is the Number 1 album in NME, Loud & Quiet and Filter, Number 6 in The Guardian, 10 in The Sunday Times and The Fly, 11 in Uncut, 12 in MOJO, 13 in Clash, and the guys have just been named as Artrocker's International Band of the Year. Truly, Tame Impala are the band that have united the critics!
In other news the official video for 'Feels Like We Only Go Backwards' has now clocked up over 550,000 hits on You Tube just a fortnight after being posted as well as being voted no 6 in Stereogum's videos of the year yesterday. Created by animators Joe Pelling and Becky Sloan, it's a hypercolour wave, a visual imprint of their sonic landscape, and totally Tame Impala.
This all follows on from the recent Memory Tapes remix of 'Feels Like We Only Go Backwards' released last week. The remix will be available as part of the 'Feels Like We Only Backwards' package, available in both vinyl and digital formats on the 17th Dec in the UK and EU via Modular.
'Lonerism' is out now worldwide on Modular Recordings. Get your copy now via iTunes, Rough Trade, The ModShop, or your favorite local record store.
