There's no doubt that Modular Records has one of the coolest websites of any record label. Today, the Australian based company gives us a 53 minute mix from Kevin Parker, best known as being the singer / songwriter / guitarplayer / multi-instrumentalist / producer of Tame Impala.
Panda Bear - I'm Not
Caribou - Sandy
King Crimson - I Talk To The Wind
Serge Gainsbourg - Sous Le Soleil Exactement
Mac Demarco - Cooking Up Something Good
Dungen - Stadsvandringar
Beck - Earthquake Weather
Royskopp - Eple
The Field - Burned Out
Can - Future Days
Air - La Femma D'Argent
Appropriately titled "Kevin Parker's Island Getaway", the mix is generally pretty light and airy, with plenty of psychedelic textures, intricate grooves, and funky melodies that Tame Impala fans are sure to dig. Rock mainstays like King Krimson and Beck are mixed in with more obscure artists like Serge Gainsbourg and Dungen. A very rewarding listen for your own island getaway, real or imaginary.
After releasing the very successful Lonerism in 2012, Tame Impala and are currently tearing up the live circuit, even amidst a change of bass player.
Oh yeah, how cool is this artwork?!?
