Tame Impala, fuzz-rocking everyone’s pants off at the Oxford Art Factory last night.

After opening for Sigur Rós last week and jetting up and down the coast for various dates in Brisbane and Melbourne, Australian band Pivot launched their album O Soundtrack My Heart back here in Sydney at the Oxford Art Factory on friday night.
It was great to get a double-dose of them in such a short space of time (they’ve been pretty busy touring Europe since signing with Warp Records back in March); and interesting also to be able to compare their sound across such different venues, from the cavernous Hordern Pavilion to the much more intimate loungeroom of the OAF. As lush and atmospheric as the sound that filled the Hordern was, I definitely prefer the more visceral, in-your-face experience in the smaller space, where you can almost get splashed with Laurence Pike’s sweat as he beats the hell out of his drumkit right in front of you.
