InnerSpeaker is the debut studio album by Australian musical project Tame Impala. Recorded at a remote beach shack in Western Australia during the winter of 2009,[2] the album was released on 21 May 2010 by Modular Recordings.

At the J Awards of 2010, the album won Australian Album of the Year.[3]

Innerspeaker was acclaimed by critics for its reminiscence of 1960s psychedelic rock and was recognized as the 83rd Best Album of the Decade So Far by Pitchfork in August 2014.[4] The album peaked at number 4 on the ARIA Charts and was certified platinum in the country.

In March 2021, a 4xLP reissue of the album was released to celebrate the album's 10th anniversary.[5]


Tame Impala had previously released their self-titled EP in 2008 and single "Sundown Syndrome" in 2009. In the lead-up to the release of Innerspeaker, four small video snippets were released through their YouTube channel, showing them practicing the songs, "The Bold Arrow of Time", "Island Walking" and another instrumental piece. The album contains two re-recorded songs, "Desire Be Desire Go" (previously released on their self-titled EP) and "The Bold Arrow of Time" (previously recorded, but unreleased).

Past Tame Impala releases were done by Kevin Parker purely for his own enjoyment. Innerspeaker marks the first time Parker has "recorded something for an intended release. In the past [he has] just recorded a song, then done another two weeks later and eventually put them together."[6] While Tame Impala tour as a band, it is Parker's personal music project in which he writes and records all the music to. Commenting on this, Parker said "Tame Impala is just one sliver of the giant amount of noise-making that we do as a circle of friends. I don't feel bad doing the recording by myself because I don't expect that input in their bands...to us Tame Impala is just Kevin Parker's project and everyone has a project"[6] and "Tame Impala has always been a solo project. It has two halves: one half is the recording side which is very calculated and pieced together, and the other side is the live side, where we take what's been recorded and turn them into live songs."[7] Parker has been recording music solo for a long time, as he explains "I’ve always recorded music. When I was 12, I used to set up two tape machines and multi-track myself. First, I’d record a beat on the drums, then, I’d play that tape into another tape recorder while playing keyboard; then I’d take that tape and play bass guitar along with the drums and keyboard. I’d keep adding instruments. I did that for a long time until my dad bought me an 8-track, and then I continued recording music by myself, even if I was in other bands at the same time."[8] Parker's father "played a lot of music as a hobby" and was a "big influence" on Kevin.[8]


The album was recorded almost entirely at Wave House, Injidup, a beach shack about four hours south of Perth with 180 degree views of the Indian Ocean,[2] with "no internet, no phone reception and no TVs".[9] While it had been reported that Tame Impala were recording in a mansion, Parker ran into problems: "The mansion isn't really like a mansion to us, it's more like a big, wooden house; the roof was leaking and the power was so bad that it kept turning off and I kept losing drum tracks. I lost a whole day's worth of drum tracks one day while recording Innerspeaker. Sometimes the power would go off for a second, which was enough to kill off my eight-track, and I lost everything. We also had plastic on top of everything because the roof was leaking so bad". Still, he maintained that "it's the most amazing scenery [he has] ever woken up to" and that recording in the house was a luxury, with the scenery having a subconscious influence on the recording.[10][11]

Recording started in June 2009 and finished in August 2009.[2] Parts of the album were recorded all over the house, with some being recorded on the balcony overlooking the ocean whilst the Fremantle Doctor blew towards the house.[2] Additional recording took place at Poon's Head Studio and at Parker's House. Regarding the recording environment, Parker said, "the idea of going to some flash studio where there's some stranger telling you how to arrange your song is pretty absurd to us". Consequently, the majority of the album was recorded and produced by Parker, with Jay Watson and Dominic Simper contributing small parts to the recording.[12]

Mixing began in November 2009 and was undertaken by acclaimed Flaming Lips producer Dave Fridmann at Tarbox Road Studios in Cassadaga, New York.[13] Originally, Parker had intended to make the entire album by himself, recording, mixing and producing it all by himself, but he ran into problems when he was "mixing it and couldn't get the sounds [he] wanted to." Parker wanted it to sound "absolutely explosive" but was not able to do so on his own.[14] At first, he was hesitant to let Fridmann mix it and was "torn about instantly handing over everything". However, he later concluded that "in the end, there's no way in hell [he] could've made the album sound as good as Dave [Fridmann] made it sound" and that his experiences working with Fridmann made him "feel like [he had] taken a giant leap forward as an engineer".[12] Speaking about the album's and Fridmann's slightly lo-fi sound, Parker said "it has a different emotion to it, it brings out a different feeling".[12]

Tim Holmes from the band Death in Vegas also came along during the recording of Innerspeaker to handle engineering duties, but was not required very often. As Parker recalls, "I told him that the Tame Impala set-up was pretty unprofessional and that there wouldn't be much for him to do. Tim was totally cool with it. He said he'd bring his fishing rod and help out when needed."[6] Parker later said, "He encouraged me to use some different mics instead of some old mics I was using, which helped a lot. I look back now and it was really invaluable having him there."[14]


Innerspeaker features album artwork from Australian artist Leif Podhajsky.[15] It features an image of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in North Carolina, United States.[16] The original image has been digitally altered using the Droste effect in recursion to make it appear as if the image continues into itself, creating a distinctly psychedelic feeling reminiscent of Pink Floyd's album cover for Ummagumma.

Parker revealed his intentions for the album artwork: "I had an idea for the album cover but didn't have the graphic design skills or the resources to carry it out. It was to be a shot of some scenery where the features of the landscape repeat infinitely into the horizon. Leif Podhajsky is an artist we found who has an amazing eye for weird cosmic art. We'll probably ask him to do the next album!"[17] and "I think it's pretty important that you have the right image for people to associate with the sound. Especially the colours. With the InnerSpeaker cover we worked with a graphic artist for a long time to get the right shapes and colours."[18]

The album cover for InnerSpeaker was nominated for an ARIA Award in 2010 for Best Cover Art.


Innerspeaker was released on 21 May 2010. Four singles were released from the album, the first single, "Solitude Is Bliss", was released in April 2010, second single, "Lucidity" was released in July 2010, third single, "Expectation" was released in December 2010 and fourth single, "Why Won't You Make Up Your Mind?" was released in February 2011. "Solitude Is Bliss", "Lucidity" and "Expectation" all featured music videos.

On 12 May 2010, iTunes accidentally made Innerspeaker available to buy immediately (not pre-order) and therefore it was leaked before the official release date. It was also leaked on the internet in poor quality a month earlier. Parker commented on this poor quality leak by saying "That was a real bummer. It was kind of bittersweet because I was glad that people could finally hear it, I wasn’t that pissed off about the sales or release or whatever, it was just that it was in bad quality from how it actually sounded."[19]

Originally, Parker intended for Innerspeaker to be a double album, but eventually lacked the motivation to make it. Many of the songs demos intended for the double album were later leaked onto YouTube in unmixed form.[14] An image in the Limited Edition version of Innerspeaker shows a drafted track listing, featuring titles such as "Feelin' the Dread", "I Know Where", "Dance", "Latenight Moonlight", "Pretty Song", "Stormy", "Funk Jam" and "Don't Ask", all of which have not seen an official release, which were possibly considered being released on the double album.[19] In 2012, Tame Impala recorded a cover of "That's All for Everyone" to be included on the Fleetwood Mac tribute album Just Tell Me That You Want Me, which was originally intended to be released on Innerspeaker. "When we made our first album our first idea is that it would be a double album and that it would finish with a cover of "That's All for Everyone". The joke being that we'd choose a song from Fleetwood Mac's double and use it to close out our double album, which was also our debut album. It never actually happened because we realized that making a double album was gonna be way too much work. So it was great when we got the offer to be included on that compilation because it meant we finally had a reason to record that song."[20]

The title Innerspeaker was selected by Parker, which was a term he came up with to try to explain the "feeling you get when you're at your most inspired, the idea that [a song] just appears to you vividly and if someone plugged a stereo into your brain they'd be able to hear it"[21] and also said "the songs come from somewhere internal, rather than slowly taking shape with a bunch of guys jamming in a room. One way of writing a song is that you've got an idea in your head and build a song around that. Another is more of a collaborative thing: It starts out as nothing and gets put together with whatever happens. This album was very much a case of the former; it's meant to give off the idea that the songs would be preserved."[8]

On May 27, 2011, Innerspeaker: Limited Edition was released on CD. This collector's edition includes a second disc, Extraspeaker, containing B-sides and remixes.

Innerspeaker was released to critical acclaim, with many praising Parker's ability to put a modern spin on elements of 1960s psychedelic rock, creating a new and original sound.[30] The album was awarded with being the feature album for Triple J Radio from the 16th of May to the 22nd.[33] The album was nominated for a J Award for Australian Album of the Year on 26 July 2010.[34] At the end of Triple J's Australian Music Month (November), it was announced as the winner. It was also nominated, and ultimately won, the Rolling Stone award for Album of the Year.[35] It was also featured on the Triple J Hottest 100 Australian Albums of All Time in 2011, firstly being featured at number 18 in the list voted by Australian musicians and industry experts,[36] and secondly being featured at number 19 on the public voted list.[37] It was nominated for an ARIA Award in 2010 in the categories of Album of the Year and Best Rock Album and also for a WAMI Award in 2011 for Most Popular Album.[38]

Upon release, the album entered the Recent Releases chart on UK-based review aggregator AnyDecentMusic? with an ADM rating of 7.5.[22] Pitchfork placed it at number 43 on its list "The Top 50 Albums of 2010".[39]

Tame Impala ist ein australisches Psychedelic-Rock-Projekt unter der Leitung von Kevin Parker. Parker schreibt und singt die Songs und spielt im Studio auch alle Instrumente selbst; bei Konzerten begleiten ihn Mitglieder der Band Pond.[1]


Die Anfänge von Tame Impala liegen in der Schulzeit von Kevin Parker und Dom Simper, die als 13-Jährige erstmals gemeinsam Musik machten. Kevin Parker war Teil eines Freundeskreises, dessen Mitglieder in wechselnden Besetzungen Bands wie die The Dee Dee Dums, GUM, Mink Mussel Creek, Pond, Space Lime Peacock, Rabbit Island und Tame Impala hervorbrachten. Jeder spielte bei jeder Band mehr oder weniger mit.[2] Nach Erfolgen der Dee Dee Dums als Studentenband änderte sich 2007 der Name in Tame Impala, benannt nach der afrikanischen Antilopenart. Drittes Bandmitglied der Anfangszeit wurde der Schlagzeuger Jay Watson. Wie viele Bands zu der Zeit stellten sie selbstgemachte Aufnahmen bei MySpace ein und wurden dort vom Indie-Label Modular entdeckt, das sie unter Vertrag nahm. 2008 erschien unter dem Bandnamen eine erste EP, die ihnen erste Aufmerksamkeit einbrachte. Dazu wurden sie auch von internationalen Musikmanagern entdeckt und als Vorgruppe für die Australientour von Künstlern wie MGMT und den Black Keys engagiert.

Im Mai 2010 veröffentlichte Tame Impala das Debütalbum Innerspeaker. Damit schafften sie es auf Anhieb auf Platz 4 der australischen Albumcharts. Den Erfolg konnten sie auch auf Europa und die USA ausweiten: In Belgien und den Niederlanden kamen sie ebenfalls in die Albumcharts,[3] in den USA in die Heatseekers-Charts. Bei den ARIA Awards 2010 wurden sie viermal nominiert.[4]

Im Jahr 2012 stellte Tame Impala das zweite Album Lonerism fertig. Wie schon die EP und das Debütalbum war es im Wesentlichen von Parker im Alleingang produziert worden. Danach folgte eine ausgedehnte Tournee durch Europa und die USA. Inzwischen waren für die Auftritte noch Nick Allbrook und später Julien Barbagallo aufgenommen worden, so dass die Band live zu fünft auftritt. Im Oktober des Jahres erschien die LP und erreichte erneut Platz 4 der Charts in ihrer Heimat sowie Platz 14 in Großbritannien. Bei den ARIA Awards wurden sie 2013 erneut mehrfach nominiert und konnten drei Auszeichnungen gewinnen: als beste Band und für Lonerism als Album des Jahres und als bestes Rockalbum.[5]

Im Jahr 2015 veröffentlichte das Psych-Pop-Projekt Tame Impala das dritte Album Currents. Das Gesamtkunstwerk aus Disco-Tracks und Synth-Balladen wurde von Kritikern als Meisterwerk gefeiert und war auch ein großer kommerzieller Erfolg.[6]

Außerdem ist Kevin Parker auch als Produzent tätig. So produzierte er das Debütalbum seiner damaligen Freundin Melody Prochet, zu dem er auch Gitarrensounds beisteuerte.[7] Inzwischen arbeitet Parker als Kollaborateur Megastars wie Kanye West, Lady Gaga, Travis Scott und Mick Jagger zu; von Rihanna wurde er schon gecovert.

Am 14. Februar 2020 erschien Parkers viertes Album The Slow Rush.[8] Klangästhetisch schließt es an das Vorgängeralbum an, flirrende Keyboards und der typische Falsettgesang über die Drums sowie psychedelische Verfremdungseffekte sind zu hören. In den Texten reflektiert Parker über seinen neuen Star-Status, er singt über Bedauern und Reue, bringt dabei melancholische Wendungen ein. Der Rockmusiker Parker spielt auch auf dem aktuellen Album auf analogen Instrumenten alles selbst ein, vor allem mit echten Drumkits, und verleiht so dem Sound Körperlichkeit, Nachhall im Raum und Vehemenz.
