Tame Impala Talk Influences, Labels and Kylie Minogue!

Tame Impala are notoriously difficult to categorise, but that only makes them all the more magical. Prog gets deep with the mastermind behind the music, multi-instrumentalist Kevin Parker.

Australian prog-psych critical darlings Tame Impala have just made an album of phantasmagoric funkadelia. Which is all well and good, but where the hell do we locate it in what remain of the globe’s vinyl and CD emporia? “I haven’t been to one recently,” drawls Kevin Parker, who on record is Tame Impala, handling all of the writing, production and performing duties himself. “I figure it’s still in the new releases.”
