the Tame Impala offshoot's 6th album is a psych rock extravaganza that very much lives up to its title - a sweeping collection of warm, warped & slightly bonkers psychedelic gems.

It brings to mind the work of The Flaming Lips, Mercury Rev, mid-'70s Lennon, MGMT, Todd Rundgren, Supergrass & many other genre-hopping sonic / space-explorers. Opener 'Waiting Around For Grace' sounds like an FM pop hit beamed in from a nearby planet, all wonky propulsion & giddy hooks - the perfect opening blast. 'Elvis's Flaming Star' stomps like a '70s glam band coached by Bowie, before collapsing into & out of a mid-tune daydream. Elsewhere on the record there are blissed-out ballads, twisted, futuristic raves, lysergic epics drenched in reverb & the gorgeous 6/8 classic 'Medicine Hat'. By the time you hit the finale: the out-of-control, ever-shifting 8-minute title track, it definitely feels like space...again, man. 8/10 - nme, "a dreanged & schizo band...indulgent, trippy & at times off-kilter" 5/5 - guardian.
