Two in one: Childish Gambino and Tame Impala

I am doing this post on the two latest albums that I've downloaded, the first being Culdesac by Childish Gambino and the second being Innerspeaker by Tame Impala.


Donald Glover is a man of many talents.  He is an actor, a stand-up comedian, and a rapper under the name Childish Gambino.  Culdesac is his EP that can be downloaded here.  Gambino's delivery is very Lil Wayne-esque, but is, in my opinion, much better than Weezy.  His lyrics consist of punchline after punchline, each of which is clever and unique.  Two of my favorite tracks on this EP are Do Ya Like and I Be On That.


Part two: Tame Impala.


Tame Impala is an Indie Psychedelic rock band hailing all the way from Australia.  There musical style reflects psychedelic rock bands of the 60s, but with a modern indie twist.  Their lead singer, Kevin Parker, has a singing voice which is very similar to that of John Lennon.  The production value on Innerspeaker is amazing, each song has its own unique flavor.  Not all of their tracks are 100% psychedelic, but for the most part they have a really trippy sound.  My favorite tracks off of this album are Alter Ego, The Bold Arrow of Time, and Why Don't You Make Up Your Mind.
