Our Top 10 Tame Impala songs lists looks at the studio work of the brilliant Australian musician and composer Kevin Parker and his brand of  psychedelic music for the 2010s.  Kevin Parker plays all the instrument on every Tame Impala studio album similar to the way musicians like Todd Rundgren and Lenny Kravitz have done with their studio albums. On the road Kevin Paler would employ musicians Dominic Simper, Jay Watson, Cma Avery and Julien Watson to play the album parts live. So far the Tame Impala discography consists of four studio albums including InnerSpeaker released in 2010, Lonerism released in 2012,  Currents released in 2015 and The Slow Rush released in 2020.
