Vor ein paar Tagen erst hatten wir hier den Four Tet Remix eines Tame Impala Songs, jetzt hat NPR ein Tiny Desk Home Concert mit den Australiern veröffentlicht. „Tame Impala Soundsystem.“

With beats, effects and synths pumping through a DJ mixer sitting on a school desk in his home studio in Australia, we present Tame Impala like you’ve never heard it before. As much as I love Tame Impala’s music, I’m probably more intrigued by the creative process that brings the songs to life. The studio version of the band is pretty simple on paper: All songs are written, produced and performed by Kevin Parker. For the live version, Parker is still front and center but surrounded by a host of musicians who interpret his recorded work almost to a tee.
So it came as a shock to me when the Australian maestro explained what he wanted to do for his Tiny Desk (home) concert or his „Tame Impala Soundsystem“ as he puts it. „I’ll get Jay (Watson) and Dom (Simper) and we’ll do this kind of electronic jam with heaps of equipment around us and we’ll recreate the songs with samplers and sequencers,“ Parker says. „I’ve wanted to do something like this for a while and thought Tiny Desk would be the opportunity to do it.“
