Published Aug 06, 2012If ever you and Otto Mann need to soundtrack a beanbag chair and herbal dalliance session, make sure you have a Tame Impala record lying about. Playing a big stage in the afternoon, the Australias psych revivalists delivered a tight set that mixed spacey sounds, prolonged guitar breakdowns and epic stoner rock.
With steady bass lines and wandering melodies, cuts like "Lucidity" were mesmeric while an extended jam on "Half Full Glass of Wine" provided a little fire. Going big, a stadium-ready "Elephant" was the highlight of the gig, ending with a resounding, apposite "Yeah!" that hammered the point home.
