Aptly titled, Tame Impalas third studio record Currents is a warm sonic wave straight from Australian waters, combining neo-psychedelia and alternative dance. Sometimes the wave washes over you, and sometimes you find yourself surfing atop it. The album marks Tame Impalas venture deeper into the ever-growing world of electronic music, but doesnt stray too far from their rock roots.

Currents is the third studio album by Australian psychedelic rock act Tame Impala, released on 17 July 2015 on Interscope Records. For the first time, Parker also mixed the music. Currents Tame Impala album. 2015 studio album by Tame Impala. The lyrical themes of Currents centre on personal transition and growing older. Parker's lyrics on the album are entirely autobiographical. His vocals are clearer and less affected than in prior Tame Impala releases, which is partially owed to him having more pride in his lyrics he said he hoped it would be easy for listeners to understand them. After two Tame Impala albums that centered on Kevin Parker's withdrawal from society, he has entered the stream of life on Currents. And he's lonelier than ever. The bemused, occasionally melancholy isolation that defined Innerspeaker and Lonerism has metastasized into heartbreak, bitterness, regret-feelings that can actually kill you if left untended.

The psychedelic rock outfits third album is available for streaming through an apparent exclusive with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporations digital music site, well before the official July 17 release via Universal. The new album, unauthorized leaks for which have appeared online in recent days, is the followup to 2012s Lonerism and 2010s InnerSpeaker, both of

As with the last 2 Impala albums, pretty crummy sound quality...plenty of extra noise pressed into the vinyl, and lacking dynamics (with the slight exception of the original Innerspeaker 45rpm). Listening to Pond's vinyl releases puts into perspective the sub par sound of Tame Impala on vinyl. I wish Pond's people had gotten ahold of Impala's "masters"...: (
That's because it was pressed at United. Very typical of the shit they press.I'm getting a Euro copy, pressed at MPO (France), where they actually have quality control and don't use sub-standard vinyl pellets.Go check allyour recent US pressings of albums you have. I bet they mostly all have a hand etched "U" in a circle. United, Rainbo and the two shittiest major plants on earth. Followed by GZ Media out of the Czech Republic.I try only to but (new) records if they are pressed at RTI, QRP, (in the states) and Optimal, Pallas, Record Industry, MPO (in Europe). If a US release is comes from United, then I check for a Euro press that is likely done at one of the four best in the world.Note that major artists (The Beatles, Pink Floyd/Waters/Gilmour, Zep, Collins, Gabriel etc have their latest remaster pressings done in the same places (often Optimal) for all releases, whether for Euro market or North American. Because they don't want their hard work, and that of the engineers, to be ruined by some amateur pressing plants trying to sell records to hipsters who don't even play records, or know what a good record actually sounds like. Another good example is the Blue Note 75th anniversary releases. All sources are cut by Bernie Grundman, but the US pressings are from United and have many flaws. The exact same albums for Euro market are done at Optimal in Germany and they are all silent and perfect.I have a crusade against United. So fucking incompetent.
Bought this album the day it came out brand new for $25. Had no idea it was limited. There was no hype sticker saying 'limited edition coloured vinyl's ir anything so I assumed all copies were like it. I was personally disappointed with the quality of the coloured vinyl so I went to my record store to buy a new one (after I found out the coloured was limited) for $27 Canadian and I broke the seal and it was the coloured version again. Complete gamble which one you're going to get. Great album but I personally don't think there was anything limit to this limited release
There is literally no way of knowing if you get this version of not. I bought this like 2 weeks ago & it was this version. I actually was so happy it was this version, because I like to own colored versions of any album gets a release that's colored. There was no sticker on mine or anything I opened it & started freaking out when I saw the gold disc. The album is so amazing I was just buying it to own a copy. Also the other limited edition version looks nothing like this pressing. It is yellow & purple vinyl & you can tell a difference if you look at both copies. I personally think the gold & lavander go better with the album cover & themes, but hey that's just me. Anyway both this album regradledd of it colored or not!!! It's a really good album!
what store did you get this from? just wondering.. .
does anyone know how many of these were pressed? how "limited" is limited?
I thought I read 5000 when it came out at the record store, I no longer work there so I have no way to look it up unfortunately
Can someone tell me why this colored version is so expensive? I don't understand why it is more than $70 everywhere.
Not true, I just bought this album 2 weeks ago in a books a million. I was actually surprised because it said nowhere on the album that it was limited edition. In fact there were no stickers saying anything & I thought I was just getting a normal US copy. Was so happy when I saw the good & lavender vinyl!
From what I understand, I think it was pretty much only for those who preordered the album. It was either that or only the very first run.
I see... Yes, it's beautiful! Any idea of how many were pressed?
As far as I can tell, they only did one initial run of the colored version. The rest were all on black vinyl. The colored version is a pretty cool set. Purple and clear yellow.
Mine sounds great, i guess it was bad luck for some, full bass response no warp, just perfect! Anybody know the amount of these made?
I second this. I just pulled this out again to listen for the first time since I bought it and it sounds fantastic.
With pressings nowadays, I do give some leeway if the warp is slight and does not interfere with play. Mine sounds fine but I would say only barely acceptable in terms of the severity of the warp on record one (record two is flat). I can't hear any distortion.The music itself is great. I do listen to this album often. I got the print, but it was handed to me from behind the counter of the shop. Would have been nice to have a download card considering the quality of the pressing. It's nice to have the semi-valuable colored vinyl and I don't have any complaints about sound quality w my copy.
Not the best pressing, both records a bit warped but I find the sound to be acceptable. I do not notice any distortion or interference.
I got a copy of this edition, and it got bumps. Muy turntable is in good conditions and those bumps are on 4 or 5 tracks... What can I do? Would they give me a refund or another new one?
My copy sounds great, very little, if any distortion...
Did anyone else's come with a glossy print of the album artwork? Can't see it listed anywhere that it comes with it, was surprised to see it included.
yes, i also have a copy of the glossy print.
I agree with all... This pressing is of extremely bad quality. It's really a shame that such an amazing release be treated like this.
Super bummer that it's eye candy and nothing else :/ Guess I'll just stick to my FLAC release of the album that I bought separately.
Q:Are you a vinyl guy? How do you like listening to music?30. By: wxyn Thread | PermalinkA:Funny enough, I'm not a vinyl guy, and never really have been. I love the romance of it, like everyone else, but I would never argue that it's superior to any other way of experiencing music. I've never listened to a vinyl record and though "ok THIS SOUNDS BETTER than a CD, or itunes etc etc etc"KEVIN PARKER WORDS, there is not too much effort on this pressing I guess... I heard lonerism and it sucks too, just stay away from tame impala on vinyl.
Distortion after first track of every side.
this is one of the worst pressings i have ever received
Can someone confirm if this version sounds better than the US standard black vinyl? I'd like to buy based on quality and not color for this LP.
Where's the download code Interscope? You greedy mother freakers! And it's $35!! Fiction, Tame Impala's label in Europe, included it in their pressings.
The free MP3 version is available via Amazon...just sign in to Amazon, find your order for the LP, then click on "Currents (Limited Edition Colored Vinyl)" and on the right hand side, click on "Play In Your Library", download and install the Amazon Music app on your computer, find the Currents album cover, drag that over to the right where it says "Download to Your Computer" and voila! It's as easy as 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8!
Not a bad press on my end. Music sounded descent although the vocals were a little on the low end but the sound was pretty descent (this might be becasue of my low-end turntable/sound setup) - even heard some stuff i didnt know was there compared to the digital release. Although i dont mind the download code not being included in this release i do find it pretty odd for a +$30 album. Altogether not a bad album to have on vinyl. I do plan on buying the Euro version later down the line though! :D
Yeah, not the greatest pressing for the US album....no digital download code, easily fixed by pushing record in my digital recording software...but the lack of a DL code was an interesting move. Again, not the greatest pressing, but the colored vinyl is nice. What it comes down to is the album content, which is very well put together and recorded. Fast becoming one of my favorites for 2015!
Does anyone know how many this is limited to?
Probably not that 'limited' must be in the 5000 region at least. The EU/Australian press may be the more limited of the different versions.
I wanted to know too.
Was anyone else's US Interscope pressing warped? I had to return mine to Amazon. Hoping this isn't a common defect! :/
i have a slight warp on disc one, i bought it locally. it plays fine, but its a slight warp
I received two badly warped copies of the limited Interscope pressing. Both are being returned in hopes that the black vinyl version that's on its way doesn't suffer from the same issues.
My discs are warp free and sound clean. No hiss or pop. You might just have had some bad luck and received a poor copy.
crappy press, but dang this record really grew on me alot!!!
Agreed, I was very disappointed with the quality of the press.
Truly one of the best albums released this year. They might have changed up a bit, but theres alot of their old sound still in there. It really is an inspired piece. Anyone who gets mad because they don't sound the same wasnt looking at tame impala in the right light in the first place.
The American press is shit 160gm, whereas the Euro vinyl is 180gm. Plus the EU one has a download voucher, result!!
Music sounded great, but for $30, the pressing itself is subpar. Feels around 150g, and my disc 1 had a small defect and Amoeba confirmed I was not alone and that it was likely a pressing defect. Additionally, the discs were packed inside of the inner glossy sleeves, almost guaranteeing rips/tears during the shipping process.
It had to do more with physical warping. The first track on either side of disc 1 had a subtle enough inconsistency that the needle could not find the groove until I pushed the headshell into place. I ended up sending it back to Amoeba for a refund.
Where was your defect? I've only listened to it once and that was the day it was released. I seem to remember it being right before the runout. Both of my records had torn through their sleeves too. So that's cool.
Yeah, $30 is too high for a double lp pressed at United. The majority of all records pressed there are defective, unfortunately.At least it was mastered at Sterling.
This should say orange transparent. The US version isn't yellow. Album 9/10!
Can anyone tell me as to why there is no download card in the new Deluxe Tame impala Currents vinyl? The European version has one, why doesn't the american version have one? i DON'T GET IT, HEY INTERSCOPE SEND ME a download code I'M @ [email protected] ---dont be cheap :-)
No mention of the (Australian Modular) colored vinyl pressing ('solid' color, not the opaque Universal pressing) from JB Hi Fi in Australia with the LTD postcard set and download voucher?Similar to the lenticular print set from the band website in Aus.Who was that one pressed by?
Yea I'm confused on this because it was $30 more to get the lenticular prints. That really doesnt make sense. I kind of feel the vinyl coming with the prints will be a special version limited to 500. I bought a colored version anyways so I have both, so will check the upc number to see if they are the same. I feel the 500 should be unique because it was $70 and you had to be lucky to be around a computer when it was announced.
Yeah, no download card...bummer town. Love the new sound though, synths are killer! Album is amazing from start to finish and the gatefold artwork is beautiful!
Where's the download code Interscope? You greedy mother fuckers! And it's $35!! Fiction, Tame Impala's label in Europe, included it in their pressings.
I smell Grammy.
Big disappointment. Once again one favorite band changes style completely for the bad. Bye bye, thanks for the previous albums.
Most reviews I've read say this is their best album. But I guess artists like to grow and move forwards rather than rehash the same sound over & over.
ive seen people post pictures of their colored vinyl online and Ive noticed that the european versions of the colored vinyl are solid and a bit darker and the US presses are clear. anyone notice that?
Also the European version has the first disc as Yellow & second as Purple. Seems to be round the other way on themail US version.
Yep my UK version is sold on both discs
Yes, I have the US version and they are transparent. I can only assume the Fiction Records version is more solid.
So far one of my favorite releases of the year. This album is more synth-based, relaxed/chill, & really cleverly written. Check it out!
does this include a download???
mine didnt come with a code either
Mine did not come with a download card. Pretty bummed.
Doesn't specify if there is a download but most releases do include one
Any idea on the # of copies they pressed?
The store I picked it up at said that this version is already our of print from the manufacturer so 500 sounds about correct, would love to get confirmation on that number though, anyone know for sure?
500 hand numbered with the extra prints from the band's website for initial announced preorder. Not sure how many printed for colored domestic limited run.
jerr-mightaswell I believe the lenticular prints themselves were limited to 500. The coloured vinyl were pressed at a larger number, easily in the thousands. However I can't be 100% sure. But I don't think they would've had a second pressing of the coloured vinyl, the lenticular prints were merely added to the first 500 of this pressing. This is correct. The colored vinyl version including the prints was limited to 500. A lot more colored vinyl versions were pressed without the prints - I've seen someone suggesting 3500, but I wouldn't be surprised if the actual number is higher. There's no official numbers, though. The prints were only for Australian pre-orders through the official band store (although they shipped them worldwide).

i think 500 for the ones with the lenticular prints
500 I believe.
500 copies I've been told
