Music by Bergman: GUM

Fremantle sweetheart, plus member of Tame Impala and Pond, GUM is Jay Watson’s aka for solo purposes. His debut release Delorean Highway is a coherent representation of GUM‘s limitless musical abilities, in which he’s shown mastering a diverse range of noise vessels.

Jay already has five solo albums and a further eight with Pond under his belt as well as 12 years association with Tame Impala. Despite the constant demands of those bands, Jay admits he finds it important to keep returning to GUM.

Divus Julius presents: The Streets

Mike Skinner’s The Streets gave British rap a voice of its own and changed the course of pop music.

Hit of the week: Tame Impala ‘Lost In Yesterday’

Tame Impala have shared their new single titled Lost In Yesterday. It’s the latest track from Kevin Parker’s upcoming studio album The Slow Rush, which is set to launch on February 14 through Fiction Records.

Lost In Yesterday follows Posthumous ForgivenessIt Might Be Time and Borderline from the follow-up to 2015’s Currents. The new track is described as “a deep dive into the addictive nature of nostalgia propelled by loopy, driving disco. An examination of time’s distorting effect on memories.”

Introducing…Temples

Temples were and continue being one of pop psychedelia great promises. As if blessed by the halo and grace of Tame Impala, the formation lead by James Edward Bagshaw debuted with a brilliant Sun Structures (Heavenly Records / Pias, 2014). An album that showed British band’s sound: luminous melodies, rhythms inspired by the sixties and clear references of neo-psychedelia. Despite having set the bar very high, his return four years later with Volcano (Heavenly Records / Pias, 2017) exceeded all expectations. A second album that strengthened his sound by adding a good dose of synthesizers and showed that their excellent debut was not a stroke of luck.

Temples have announced details of a new album. The now-trio will release ‘Hot Motion’, their third full-length and follow-up to 2017’s ‘Volcano’ on 27th September. They’ve also shared the title track from the album, about “the tensions of desire, dreams and nightmares,” alongside a video. Very soon at Vida Festival.

Divus Julius presents…Tame Impala

Tame Impala is Kevin Parker –  the almost legendary messianic figure and creative soul who has developed the particular sonic universe of psychedelic pop cultivated with guitar pedals, delays, reverbs and liquid explosions of color. There’s no one like him in the current music scene. We were left in 2015 with Currents, Tame Impala’s third album which ventured further into the pop genre, and added dance beats and R&B that only served to underpin the enthronement of the Australian.

For his fourth album, Tame Impala remained true to his usual impenetrability and stands silent, but we have seen him parade through a number of collaborations: he has shared the studio with Mark Ronson and SZA, he has produced Lady Gaga and Travis Scott, Rihanna covered him on her latest album, he has remixed Mick Jagger and Miguel and has released songs with A$AP, Rocky, Theophilus London and ZHU. So what does all this mean? Well, we know what Tame Impala has been until now, but we haven’t a clue what will happen when he visits the festival again. And that can only be a good thing. Tonight at Primavera Sound.
