In a very, very extensive interview with Under The Radar, Kevin Parker opened up about the impetus behind his two newly-released songs from Tame Impala's third album Currents, among other things.

Watch Tame Impala Play The Epic “Let It Happen” On Conan

Tame Impala's Kevin Parker still seems to be getting used to the idea that he's the man behind one of the world's most exciting bands.

The 10 Best Moments Of Coachella 2015 Friday

There's every other festival in America, and then there's Coachella. Every year, it feels like it matters just a bit more than the others.

This week's offerings are once again eclectic, but that's really the point. It's why we put this list together week after week, mixing up liquid dance jams and exultant gospel-hop, or… More »

This week, Death Gri… More »

Now here's another Ronson song with Parker on the mic. Whereas "Daffodils" had an early MGMT feel, "Leaving Los Feliz" boasts gnarly George Harrison guitar riffs and a hip-hop backbeat. Listen below.

Tame Impala LP3 Will Be Out This Year

Last we heard about Tame Impala LP3, keyboardist Jay Watson was hinting that Kevin Parker would take the band's psychedelic sound in a more electronic direction, adding that he doesn't think anybody in the band but Parker had heard the music yet.

Tame Impala’s Next Album Will Be “Less Rock And More Electronic”

Earlier this month we heard "Daffodils," Mark Ronson's collaboration with Tame Impala frontman Kevin Parker, who is credited on three of the tracks on Ronson's new album Uptown Special.

POND – “Elvis’ Flaming Star” Video

Former Tame Impala bassist Nick Allbrook left that band last year to concentrate on fronting his own Aussie psych-rock project, POND. The two bands still share multiple members, though, and you can definitely hear POND as the shaggier, zonked-out cousin to Tame Impala's technicolor explorations. Today, Allbrook and co. announce a new album, Man ItMore »

ASAP Rocky – “Riot Rave” (Feat Baauer) Video & “Unicorns”

One of the highlights of A$AP Rocky's Long.Live.A$AP was the Skrillex feature "Wild For The Night," and Rocky's new Gessafelstein collab "In Distress" ain't half bad either. So I was hoping "Riot Rave," Rocky's new video with Baauer, would be another example of prime party-time PMF EDM. Alas, it seems to be an "art video"… More »
