Fresh off of releasing the remixed and immersive The Slow Rush In An Imaginary Place, a re-imagined sonic Tame Impala experience meant to offer up some escapism during the coronavirus quarantine, Kevin Parker has returned for another gift. The musician joined Music from the Home Front, a special by Australian concert promoter Frontier Touring to celebrate Anzac Day (Australia and New Zealand’s Veterans Day) over the weekend.
The televised livestream found Parker in his most intimate setting yet: with just an acoustic guitar and microphone to deliver a dialed back version of the The Slow Rush song “On Track.” It’s a noteworthy performance to see how Parker can more than hold his own even without his expert production and psychedelic influences mixing with his vocals.
Earlier this month, Parker joined The Streets for the group’s first single in a half-decade in “Call My Phone Thinking I’m Doing Nothing Better” featuring a music video showcasing friends keeping in touch during the times of self-isolation. For more, Kevin Parker caught up with HYPEBEAST for the magazine feature “Tame Impala is Grown”.
Watch the full performance above and be sure to listen to the original for comparison. In more music updates, Run The Jewels celebrated the death of capitalism in their new music video “Ooh LA LA”.
