Tame Impala – “Solitude Is Bliss (Mickey Moonlight Remix)” (Stereogum Premiere)

At the beginning of the month we gave you the video for Tame Impala’s psychedelic Innerspeaker pop nugget “Solitude Is Bliss.” The clip found a protagonist dancing away an apocalypse, getting hypnotized by confetti (or drifting remnants), shooting folks with his fingers, and punching dogs. If you watch it again soundtracked by this echoing, phased, opium-hazed remix, everything feels a bit mellower. Even the riot police. The tweaking was done by Ed Banger-associated UK producer Mickey Moonlight, aka Midnight Mike, aka Mike Silver.

Innerspeaker is out 5/21 in Australia and 6/8 internationally via Modular. You can stream the album in its entirety here. Or, if you prefer, get trippy with it. The guys are in the States soon with MGMT. And sometimes by their lonesome.
