Our Tastemakers at are always on the hunt, exploring and searching for the next new sound and talent to catch their ear.

This month, we’re recognizing the top buzzing Artist on, psychedelic rock group Tame Impala. Tame Impala is a band from Australia led by singer, songwriter, producer and guitarist Kevin Parker. The talented, genre-defying band was introduced to by our Tastemaker Tatiana back in August of 2014.

Their recent explosion coincides with the recent summer release of their album Currents in July. The album has gained praise by publications like Stereogum and NPR as a progressive piece of work that only solidifies the talents of writer Kevin Parker.

Tame Impala first came together in 2007, and gained initial praise following the release of their debut album Innerspeaker, which went gold in Australia,  in 2010. They followed that success up with the release of their sophomore album Lonerism in 2012, earning themselves a Grammy nomination for Best Alternative Music Album.

Tastemaker Tatiana shared Tame Impala over a year ago and the band has since signed a deal with Interscope, played Coachella and even been recognized as one of the biggest names in psychedelic rock today.

Check out some of the band’s music on their profile and experience why Tame Impala has been the most talked about Artist amongst our Tastemakers this month.
