Innerspeaker is the debut studio album by Australian progressive rock band Tame Impala, originally released in May 2010 via Modular Recordings and Fiction Records.

The origins of Tame Impala can be found in the Perth music scene. Kevin Parker played in a number of bands, one being the Dee Dee Dums, a rock duo that consisted of Parker (guitar) and Luke Epstein (drums). Tame Impala emerged in 2007 as Parker's home-recording project, and he posted a number of tracks on Myspace. This brought interest from a number of labels and eventually, he signed with Modular Recordings. To transfer these recordings to a live-stage, Parker enlisted the help of Dominic Simper (bass) and Jay Watson (drums) and began playing at some local gigs.

The album was recorded in 2009 at a remote beach shack called Wave House on the Western Australian coast where the band members were isolated from phones and the internet. The album was mixed by acclaimed Flaming Lips producer Dave Fridmann in New York. Tim Holmes from the band Death in Vegas also came along during the recording of Innerspeaker to handle engineering duties.

The cover art was designed by Australian artist Leif Podhajsky and features an image of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in North Carolina, United States. The original image has been digitally altered using the Droste effect in recursion to make it appear as if the image continues into itself, creating a distinctly psychedelic feeling reminiscent of Pink Floyd's album cover for Ummagumma.

Innerspeaker, which was certified gold in Australia was well received by critics, and with good cause. Although it lacks a stand out single, Innerspeaker demonstrates a subtle yet encompassing sense of control, each track part of a whole unit.

The vocal reverb sound is reminiscent of John Lennon and the drums drive the songs without being overly prominent, but noticeable for the clever use of cymbals giving the album a 1970s psych and prog rock vibe. The album flows perfectly making this a very strong debut album.

It won Triple J's J award for Australian Album of the Year 2010, was nominated for three ARIA awards, also winning the Rolling Stone award for Album of the Year in the following year.

The album reached #4 on the Australian Albums charts and also peaked at #24 on the UK Independent Albums charts.
