I've been paying pretty close attention since they swapped the Coachella 2010 video for the Trentemoller video on Wednesday night, and so far I count 3: Trentemoller, Phantogram and Tame Impala.

You actually seen a 4th video on there at some point?

I guess this thread is started in the Lineup section (opposed to the other 3 tame impala threads), but come on, at least make your OP worth something to read instead of a quick sentence that reads "First!"

"First"? I posted this at 2:40 in the afternoon, well after this thread was started. I have no idea why my post was logged at 7:50 AM, I was definitely sleeping at that time.

Anyone who's been here for any bit of time knows we here place high value on the search function. If Tame Impala is confirmed, post it in one of the other Tame Impala threads that have been popping up on the front page in the past few days.

I love Innerspeaker. I started listening to them last week when I saw that they were on the rumored list. I know some people were complaining about all their music sounding exactly the same, but I would still consider it pretty good. I'm excited for their live show too.

I saw Tame Impala at Sasquatch last year(had never heard a song) and in Vancouver in December(after playing Innerspeaker repeatedly). They were excellent both times and i am looking forward to seeing them once again.Any band that lists Todd Rundgren at the top of their influences list is OK by me.

They're definitely channeling psychedelic 60's acid rock with their music, and they sound a lot like Cream to me, which is also the time in clapton's career when he was experimenting with acid

For me it's probably going to end up being

Tame Impala

Chemical Brothers

Depending on scheduling I'd really like to fit in Omar Rodriguez Lopez...

The closer it gets though the more excited I get for Tame Impala. My only concern is that they get the XX treatment from last year and get like a 5pm set on the Outdoor and it will be packed. They have been getting so much play on XMU lately.

I think you put your finger on it. These guys are really talented. Their bass player was the best one I hear this weekend and the guitar work is not your run-of-the-mill stuff. But the singer was a bit tentative and garbled and their presence was lacking. Seems like the album producer brought out what the event couldn't.

They caught their stride for the last third/half, though. Their last jam channeled some of the Dead's better stuff. I would definitely be a buyer with these guys. I don't think any two of them add up to my age, so they should grow into their talent.

Warpaint into them was really good. I was at the front with some caifenes fans that had never really heard most of the bands at the outdoor stage. They ended up really getting ito tame impala at one point. The transitions they would have were really good especially for the last song. The rhythm section just kept it together so well. I liked how the singer played off the crowd with the use of his delay peddle in the last song. Good show.

I saw Tame Impala at their last Coachella appearance and also at Outside Lands this past summer, and while I love their ability to replicate their songs live there is nothing mindblowing about their performances. I will surely be there to see them (barring any conflicts) but don't expect them to take their music to a new level. They just play their perfected songs with their perfectly rehearsed effects recreating their albums live. Just my 2 cents.
