This Tame Impala Demo Is Beautiful

Kevin Parker shares an early version of the Lonerism standout.

Last night (which would be today in Australia? Or tomorrow? I don't understand time zones), Kevin Parker of Tame Impala posted a very early demo version of the best song on Lonerism: "Feels Like We Only Go Backwards." With untreated vocals and what sounds like a toy-store keyboard, it's basically a handmade, lo-fi sketch of the room-filling original, and it sort of sounds like the kind of super pretty, rinky-dink pop song that a label like Double Double Whammy might put out on cassette. It's also a good excuse to revisit Sam Hockley-Smith's cover story on Tame Impala from the fall of 2012.
