Tame Impala plays ‘Lonerism’ in full at Desert Daze festival

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of his sophomore album, Tame Impala played Lonerism front to back, at the Desert Daze festival in California.

Tame Impala has just wrapped up his headlining appearance at the Desert Daze festival in sunny California over the weekend, alongside fellow Aussie psychedelic rockers, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, and UK’s Beach House. 

Mixed by the legendary musician and record producer, Dave Fridmann, Tame Impala’s second studio album, Lonerism was released in October of 2012. To celebrate, the band played the full album, front to back, led by the singles Mind Mischief, Feels Like We Only Go Backwards, Elephant, and Apocolypse Dreams, before wrapping up with the album’s closing track, Sun’s Coming Up, with an extended jam.
