Aussie psych-rockers Tame Impala have announced the release of their long-awaited fourth studio album 'The Slow Rush'.

The 12-track record features their previously unveiled track "Borderline" and the new single "It Might Be Time".
According to the press release, the single, is described as,
“Your paranoid shadow snapping at your Achilles heel. It’s the horrifying idea that your mojo’s gone out for a walk and it may not be coming back. It’s second guessing yourself, wondering ‘have I still got it? Did I ever??’ Your paranoid inner observer taunting you in your own denial, telling you to wake up and accept your salad days are over. A dynamic, bombastic burst of pungent prog-pop, ‘It Might Be Time’ pulses on an insistent keyboard groove, punctuated by collisions of overblown drums flaying at the edges, the outward expression of a restless internal funk. A heady psych bomb threatening to implode, ‘It Might Be Time’ is potent Tame Impala 2020.”
UK dream pop/indie/psych band Tourists have returned with their catchy new single "Align", their first in almost three years.
As needle-fine guitars duel through hives of retro-electronics, ‘Align’ sees the Torquay five piece announce their return with a darkly exhilarating rush of shoegaze-washed atmospherics and breathtaking pace.
Ruminating on the concept of interpersonal manipulation and control, ‘Align’ arrives as something of a statement of intent from a band looking to cast off the shackles and take back control of their destiny.
Speaking about why ‘Align’ was the right track to re-introduce the world to Tourists, Tom Wilkinson of the band says:
“[Align] follows the idea of somebody mastering their own inner spirit to command others. We feel this track really reflects our main musical influences – the deep-rooted post-punk element coupled with 80s synth/dark-pop. As we played it more it took on a life of its own, getting heavier with more dynamics, and a dramatic, driving ending.”
