In the latest edition of Guitar Magazine, Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker told us of the mix of emotions that come with exploring a decade-old album in order to put together the celebratory reissue.
“It was really moving, I didn’t expect it to be,” he said. “I actually found the 16-track recorder that I recorded it on, which I haven’t bothered to pull out of its box for 10 years. I kind of assumed that the hard drive had shat itself, y’know? I didn’t expect it to work! But it just turned on, and all the songs were there… so much has happened since, I’ve kind of forgotten what it felt like to be a wide-eyed kid, unsure of who he is, trying to prove himself through music.”
InnerSpeaker was recorded in remote – that is, in a large isolated house with no internet, not the pandemic meaning of the word – sessions over the summer of 2009. It arrived in May 2010 to critical acclaim, with reviews praising its modern take on 1960s psychedelia.
