In suitable quarantine style, Kevin Parker has delivered a languorous hour-long reimagining of Tame Impala‘s latest album, The Slow Rush. The alternate edition titled “The Slow Rush In An Imaginary Place” features a full-length continuous mix of their Valentine’s Day-released LP. With each track muddled by crowd noises and distant reverb, the new mix transports listeners on an immersive experience tinged with melancholic nostalgia and dreamy escapism—reminiscent of hazy party nights or even a live concert itself.
Tame Impala’s Australian and New Zealand April tour dates have been rescheduled to December due to COVID-19 crisis. The San Francisco and Mexico City shows follow suit in their rescheduling to Fall 2020. In March, the psychedelic project announced their intent to promote eco-friendly initiatives with Maine nonprofit REVERB during the tour.
“I made something for all you isolators out there. I call it The Slow Rush In An Imaginary Place. Headphones required for full immersive effect. See you in there,” wrote Parker in an Instagram post.
