Listen to: The Less I Know The Better

…And to their credit, the singer doesn’t spend a lot of time talking about it!

Truly, it’s great to find a cohesive, fluid, ballad-like song under 4 minutes. Plus, besides being the songwriter, lead singer Kevin Parker plays almost all the instruments while in studio–reminds me of the late, great Donnie Elbert–and has his own wonderful great falsetto.

And this just makes it all the better: “Parker has also stated that Supertramp, one of his favourite bands, are a major influence on the musical style of Tame Impala. Despite their difference in sound, he feels he is always somewhat ‘channeling Supertramp’.”

You can also read an Ask Me Anything conducted on Reddit: Parker seems just like a normal guy doing stuff he loves to do.
