Best New Track: Tame Impala's "Eventually"

OK, Tame Impala. We get it. Your new album is going to be one of the best of the year.

At this point, I feel like the Aussie psych-rock outfit have already released Currents, their ridiculously anticipated third album. They've been dropping single after single - read: addictive, trippy hits - for the past two months, painting a picture of how outstanding this potentially seminal album will sound.

Yesterday, we were gifted "Eventually," which, in my opinion, is the golden track of the four they've leaked. Decorated by waves of heavy reverb, "Eventually" hops between those growly, distorted moments and twinkling psychedelia - all obviously led by Kevin Parker's unmistakably woozy falsetto.

Judging from what my fellow critics have said, I'm the only one who believes this one stands alone as the best leak yet, but sue me - I think this hazy lullaby is so dreamy.

Look out for Currents, via Interscope Records, on July 17.
