Kevin Parker provided the ‘Play At Home’ performance on last night’s Late Show With Stephen Colbert.
Parker aired Is It True from the recent Tame Impala album The Slow Rush which Live4ever said is the, ‘realisation of some intricate dreams which only he will ever fully understand’:
“Things have changed in Parker’s life since Currents, which was nominally a break-up album, the most obvious of those being his recent marriage to Sophie Lawrence. Signs of the obsessive letting life get in the way are not always obvious however, instead the singer ponders whether he’s still relevant at the grand old age of 34 on the lustrous It Might Be Time, while he chooses to re-examine his relationship with his father (who died in 2009) on the sober Posthumous Forgiveness.”
“Or maybe there are: the epic closer One More Hour contains the line, “Whatever I’ve done, I did for love”, but it’s the album’s most stripped back moment, sometimes existing on a single keyboard phrase repeated over and over, the stop-start tensions revealing a coarser edge amongst the polished multi-tracking.”
