    For the few people who may be interested, Tame Impala has released a couple of new songs, along with the announcement of their new album.

    I never understood this "Indie" rock label. If it's rock it's rock, right?

    I tend to agree. I use the term indie, because it gives people a basic idea of what it sounds like. Personally, I think its way too vague.

    Good call, Geo. If I had to guess, I would assume they were influenced by a lot of eighties synth pop, along with psych rock .

    Again, its very vague. Thats why I usually put indie/something else when I make a reference.

    If I had to give a definition of indie rock, I guess it would be relatively simple instrumentation, with various layerings (be it ample or sparse). Perhaps a little bit more creative liberty than mainstream rock. :dontknow:

    Indie tends to mean not mainstream, not signed to a major label...Thus more betterer
