Back in April, Tame Impala released their Live Versions for Record Store Day. According to a press release, the nine-track collection went on to become to highest-selling vinyl of RSD 2014. Now, Modular is releasing the EP for mass consumption; it’s available for purchase here and is streaming below via Spotify.
The recordings are pulled from an October 2013 show at Chicago’s Riviera Theatre, feature material from as far back as their 2006 self-titled EP. Frontman Kevin Parker hand-selected each song. “His goal was to give fans something they won’t already have,” reads press for the release, “something they’ve only previously experienced at a Tame Impala show.”
As such, jams often stretch the songs far longer than their original versions, with some breaking the seven-minute mark handily. Also included is a brief, previously-unreleased instrumental called “Sestri Levante”. Take a listen to all the Live Versions below.
