About Nathan Brooks

Generally into more experimental music. Modern neo-psychedelia (courtesy of Tame Impala, Pond, the Flaming Lips and King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard) was the first genre I got into. However, practically any rock from the '60s & '70s, be it the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix, Soft Machine, The Doors, Yes, David Bowie, or King Crimson, will suit me fine.

Tame Impala sound like a band. The music they produce has many different layers of sound to it and it is incredibly complex. Technically they are a band live, but all the recordings you hear on the actual albums are done entirely by one guy. Kevin Parker, a multi-instrumentalist from Perth, Australia, writes, performs, produces and mixes all of the music, but it doesn’t sound like it. You’d expect to hear just a lone performer strumming away timidly on his acoustic guitar, but you don’t. You hear electric guitars and synthesisers playing beautiful melodies, face melting basslines and captivatingly intricate drum beats across all of his music.
