Album: The Slow Rush B Sides & Remixes
Artist: Tame Impala
Label: Island Records Australia
Non-Airable Tracks: Breathe Deeper (Lil Yachty Remix)
Description:As an avid Tame Impala fan, the slow drop of each track on this "mini album" was a long, near excruciating process to watch. Nevertheless, the arrival of the final product is nothing short of another Kevin Parker classic. The B Side tracks, which include The Boat I Row, One More Year and Patience act as much more of a middle child between its predecessor album Currents and TSR. All three encapsulate the ethereal, dreamlike sound of Currents with the groovy, get-on-your-feet upbeat tracks we are introduced to in TSR.
The most popular remix on the album, Breathe Deeper featuring rapper Lil Yachty, is a collaboration many fans, myself included, never would have anticipated. The product, unknown at the time, provides a preview into the new direction Tame Impala is actively pursuing. Met with mixed reviews, I personally can't wait to see more collaboration and production with a mix of talents in the industry.
