Without a doubt right now, music is important to better face this complex situation that we live. Whether it is watching the online concerts that many of our favorite musicians are putting together these days or simply playing that album that we love so much or that we have left to listen to at another time, the songs are key to forgetting everything that is happening and it seems that Tame Impala knows it too.
It turns out a few hours ago, Kevin Parker –The mastermind behind this huge project– shared with all of us a rather special gift that falls like a ring to the finger for these days when the vast majority of the world is at home and in full social isolation due to the quarantine caused by the coronavirus.
This is a rather curious mix of their latest studio album, The Slow Rush, which they released almost a month ago. In it we can hear a very interesting version of the songs that brought Tame Impala back as “Borderlline”, “It Might Be Time” or “Lost In Yesterday” but with another environment because it is filtered to silence the surround sound of each song a bit and make us feel as if the band is playing it in our house but in a nearby room.
On this strange called version of his fourth record material, Kevin Parker wrote on his Twitter account the following: “I did something for all the insulators out there. I call it ‘The Slow Rush In An Imaginary Place’ and headphones are needed for a total immersion effect. See you in there. ” Apparently with the reimagining of this album, Tame Impala seeks to give us the feeling of listening to them very close to us while we wait for the measures by COVID-19 to stop to see them live again.
We better not tell you more, put on the best headphones you have and Play below for an hour of this new version of the latest Tame Impala album:
And as you will remember, the dates that Tame Impala had scheduled in our country have been postponed by the coronavirus. For now the only thing that is known is that the Pa’l Norte festival – where they would share a poster with The Strokes, The Whitest Boy Alive, Foster The People and more – is planned to take place on September 11 and 12 in Monterrey, Nuevo León, Y The concert that the Australian band would give at the Foro Sol of CDMX together with MGMT and Clairo sse moved for September 10 at the same venue.
