[AUSSIE ACID ROCK] There’s a scene in season five of Mad Men where Jon Hamm puts the Beatles’ 1966 classic Revolver on the record player, only to lift the needle mere seconds into “Tomorrow Never Knows.” A similar wave of fuzz-caked psychedelia and phased-out pop prowess completely engulfs Tame Impala’s sophomore record, Lonerism. Frontman Kevin Parker’s sweeping, Lennon-esque vocals go hand-in-hand with the album’s atmospheric synths and propulsive swath of late ’60s-inspired rock, anchored by existential themes and invigorated by the spacey electronic textures of tomorrow. Hell, you don’t even have to be high to see the colors—it just takes a drop of the needle.
