But lo and behold, there were reviews coming out saying "And Tame Impala's new EP 'Antares, Mira, Sun".
Tours in 2008 included supports for You Am I, The Black Keys, Yeasayer and MGMT, as well as performances at Southbound Festival, Meredith Music Festival and Falls Festival, as well as national headline tours in support of their EP.
Parts of the recording also occurred in Parker's home studio in France.
The first single "Elephant" was released in July 2012.
As a result, one of the tracks on Lonerism is titled "Endors Toi", which roughly translates from French to English as "fall asleep".
The album cover is a photo taken by Parker of the Jardin du Luxembourg in Paris, France, with additional editing by Leif Podhajsky, a graphic designer who created the album art for Innerspeaker.
This brought interest from a number of labels and eventually, he signed a worldwide deal with the independent Modular Recordings in July 2008.
The cover art is meant to be a painting; an interpretation of a diagram, so those labels are just there to make the diagram make sense.
