Koala Temple = Tame Impala + Foxygen
Koala Temple’s trippy style of rock takes nothing seriously, rambling and staggering like a fuzzed-out hippie on an endless DMT trip. Under the haze of drug-induced powerchill lies a rock-solid foundation of competent songwriting and performance. On “Beverly Musick,” Craig Murray’s half-mumbled vocals and angular guitar strums take the lead, with punctuation from Wren Kennedy’s meandering rhythm guitar providing an extra layer of cool to the mix. Meanwhile, Taylor Clark provides the rhythmic backbone of the band, pulling together weirdly satisfying drum sequences to construct a catchy beat. Josh Brown’s bass grooves round out the package rather nicely. Always spontaneous and striving to outdo themselves musically, their random clash of musical inspiration produces results that are both unexpectedly cohesive and blessedly unconventional.
