Tame Impala

Why: Tame Impala are the best Australian band since heavies like the Birthday Party and the Scientists were stirring up shit in the early 1980s. But this Perth trio works in a much more ethereal vein than those groups, as guitarist Kevin Parker's angelic voice rises effortlessly to the heights of his mates' stratospheric shoegaze-rock symphonies. On their phenomenal debut album, Innerspeaker, judiciously sweetened melodies gush forth in a honeyed cyclone of sound. Meet the new Wizards of Oz. (Neumos, 925 E Pike St, 709-9467, 8 pm, $12, all ages)
