The beauty of Kevin Parker's music is how he can say just as much with instruments and melodies as he can with lyrics. The long awaited fourth album from Parker (AKA Tame Impala) reverberates the theme of perfectionism and anxiety. On Borderlines, he worries, "Will I be known and loved?", constantly thinking about how he will be received. "Posthumous Forgiveness" is a lament of his self-described flawed father. Take a close listen to the drums on this track, as they bring to life the message of the lyrics.
