The Fashionably Late Top 50 of 2012: #7b - Tame Impala

When it comes to year-end lists, y'all know I don't mess around. I don't post my picks from the previous year for weeks after the next year has started. In 2012, there was a bounty of music that entered the world that made me deliriously happy to be blessed with the sense of sound. So I pondered, marinated, and contemplated for weeks. Music from 2012 has been digested for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. And now, friends, it's time. Time to share with you what I consider the cream of quite a crop indeed. You might see things omitted here that you think should be on a Best Of list. This list isn't what I think you want to read. This list is what I feel about last year. If it's not here, I either didn't spend enough time with it or just didn't love it enough. A big thank you to all of the artists who created the music that I fell in love with last year.

WHO: Tame Impala

WHAT: Lonerism

WHEN: October 2012

WHERE: Modular

WHY: Sometimes even music writers need a little nudge. Thankfully, when it comes to Tame Impala, I had not one but two nudges (thanks, Brandi and Matt). If not for them, I might have missed out on the fluorescent, psychedelic dreamsicle space oddity fantasy that is Lonerism. Possessing one of my jams of the year, the powerfully pulsatingly sexy stardust groove machine that is "Elephant," Lonerism proves itself to be more than worthy of frequent listens.

MY JAMS: "Enders Toi" "Mind Mischief" "Feels Like We Only Go Backwards" "Elephant" "Nothing Has Happened"
