Video of the Moment #1892: Tame Impala

By on Wednesday, 19th August 2015 at 6:00 pm

A lot of people think they’re amazing and will follow them to the ends of the earth, but the hippy dippy, psychedelic sound of Tame Impala seems to have passed me by. I’m really trying to ‘get’ them though. The Aussie band, led by Kevin Parker, released their third album ‘Currents’ in mid-July, and ‘Let It Happen’ now has its own promo video. Anyone who has been unfortunate enough (or fortunate, depending the way you look at it) to spend much of their lives going in, out and through airports for their job can probably relate to this visual, as it’s a very stressful thing. Well, except for the talking sandwich. Yes, there’s a talking sandwich with tomatoes for a tongue. Right. You probably want to watch the video now, so I’ll leave you to it..

Live Gig Video: The Flaming Lips cover Tame Impala’s ‘Elephant’

By on Friday, 1st November 2013 at 4:00 pm

The Flaming Lips recently released their cover version of Tame Impala‘s ‘Elephant’. It wouldn’t be the Flaming Lips without something a little off-kilter about the performance, and Wayne Coyne delivers in that respect by flapping the edges of a giant silver disc around his ears like a fly’s wings. It has to be seen to be believed. Watch it below.

If you’d like to compare this version with the original, head this way to watch Tame Impala’s promo as this previous Video of the Moment.



Video of the Moment #1111: Tame Impala

A public school kid has an active imagination about his young, tight skirt-wearing teacher in Tame Impala‘s new video for the song ‘Mind Mischief’, explore territory previously trod over by Van Halen in ‘Hot for Teacher’. But it just wouldn’t be a Tame Impala video if it didn’t have an element of trippiness. Watch it below. There are some naked people cartoons so yeah, probably best if the kiddies didn’t watch this with you.
