It took a while to work up those 2012-in-review posts, so I’ve fallen behind on songs of the week.  However, each week I’ve made a note of the what my song of the week would have been, and now I’m playing a bit of catch-up.  So, for the week of December 17, 2012, my song of the week was:

“Mind Mischief” by Tame Impala

Probably not the best track on Lonerism (but it’s hard to choose when there are so many good ones!) it’s nevertheless my favorite.  This woozy psychedelic track ambles through the unforgettable melodies of its verses and choruses with little help from synthesizers, instead relying primarily on the guitar and the busy drumming.  The end result is remarkably cool.

“Feels like my life is ready to blow, me and my love we’re taking it slow…”
