Tame Impala is the latest group to perform on NPR’s Tiny Desk (Home) Concert series. Kevin Parker, Jay Watson, and Dominic Simper performed three tracks from the psychedelic outfit’s most recent studio album, The Slow Rush: ‘Breathe Deeper’, ‘Is It True’ and ‘Patience’. Watch their livestreamed set below.
During the performance, Parker refers to this version of the band as more like ‘Tame Impala Soundsystem’. “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 explains. “I’ve wanted to do something like this for a while and thought Tiny Desk would be the opportunity to do it.”
A few days ago, Tame Impala shared Four Tet’s Kieran Hebden remix of ‘Is It True’, a track for which they also recently released an accompanying visual.
