Solitude is Bliss

“I don’t care what I miss, company’s okay, solitude is bliss.”

Big things are coming for Loose Lips. A lot of things are going so terribly right in my life right now that it’s almost scary. One such thing is the opportunity for exposure that is coming my way for this little blog. Consequently, I’m planning a massive relaunch of this site in a month. New address, new formatting, new logo, new style, new writers, everything. Oh and I’m going to actually start advertising outside my group of friends. In the meantime, I’m not going to have time for too many new posts. I’m busy HTML formatting the new site! Let me tell you, it is not a fun process. Here’s a little something to keep you satiated though.

Tame Impala are a psychedelic rock outfit from Australia. They sound like a combination of the Beatles at the height of their acid area with just enough shoegaze to draw comparisons to the Verve. Their debut LP was released in late May to rave reviews, and deservedly so. I haven’t bought a full album in a long time (the internet and the availability of singles is definitely to blame for that, how hypocritical of me), but this is one that I made sure to purchase in its entirety. I’m so glad I did, because the entire album is a gem and works best when listened to from beginning to end. Though every song is excellent in its own right, Solitude is Bliss is the most obvious single. It’s warm, fuzzy, dreamy rock powered by a golden guitar hook around which all the song’s other elements serve as colorization. The best part is, it’s all about the joys of being alone. Listening to this song, I’m perfectly content with that.
