“Heaven” by Trust

Man I’m getting old.  I notice it in every single white hair invading my head and beard space.  I feel it in every popping joint at night as I carry a sleeping toddler up the stairs.  And I sense it at every concert or festival I go to, content to hang in the back (maybe even with a chair!) as youthful bodies kick and sway up ahead, their eyes glossing over me, a boring and crumbling wallflower.  Pay no attention to the old fart drinking beer in the back.  He’s just here to listen.

The Joup Friday Album: Tame Impala – Currents

tameimpalaLevitation was cancelled due to weather.  I’m a sad panda.  Here’s your Friday album.

This week, rather than pick some album from my youth that has been instrumental to me as a person, or some culturally significant all-timer that deserves your infinite spins, I’m going with a more recent offering that’s just way too much fun to not listen to today.  And while someday, Australian rock band Tame Impala’s third album Currents may become a certifiable classic or pop cultural milestone (it’s certainly good enough), for now we’ll just call it a ridiculously good pop record that blends psych rock, dreampop, and slinky disco synth-pop in a way that recalls the best 80’s albums that were never actually made.  It’s retro chic, but in a timeless way, and I’ve been grooving steadily to it since last summer.
