Tame Impala Makes Music for Loners. But Now Kevin Parker Plays the World’s Biggest Stages.


With Parker backed by his touring band, Tame Impala became a headliner at festivals worldwide; coming dates include Primavera Sound in Spain, Glastonbury in England and Lollapalooza in Chicago, along with Madison Square Garden shows on Aug. 21-22. Some had frisky grooves hinting at Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson; one reimagined the grandiose buildups of 1970s power ballads. “I like the idea on this album that people will argue about what it sounds like, or when it sounds like it’s from,” Parker said. In a phone interview last week from Guadalajara, Mexico, where Tame Impala was performing, Parker had no firm title or release date for the album.
