Tame Impala graced us with three new songs and two remixes. for their Currents album
The unreleased B-Sides,Currents B-Sides & Remixes dropped with the Perth psych big-guns doubling up and gifting us an early release of the expanded collector’s edition of their 2015 album Currents. Here we have a collection of all the tracks .

The release features three unreleased tracks (including the instrumental ‘Powerlines’, (heard in this teaser) and two remixes (one by GUM aka Tame bandmate Jay Watson, and Soulwax’s funked-up take on ‘Let It Happen’). The track ‘List Of People (To try And Forget About)’ was originally written in the gap between 2012’s Lonerism and starting sessions for Currents, as Kevin Parker tells Beats 1 host Zane Lowe.
“I guess maybe one of the reasons it didn’t end up on [Currents] was that it was started on so early and I was so over it by the time I was finishing the album.”

It took Kevin Parker five years to perfect Tame Impala’s follow-up to the massively-successful Currents. Listening to this collection it’s easy to see where that time went — on his project’s fourth studio album, Parker played the part of perfectionist, with every synth note, guitar riff and drum beat intricately placed to be as sonically pristine as possible. This collection gives Currents fans plenty of the danceable prog-rock music they’ve come to love while also expanding outward into smooth, groovy new territory . Parker’s pure musicianship shines through with his latest offering, proving once again why the superstar likes of Travis Scott, Lady Gaga, Kanye West and more are clamouring to work with him.

This is a really good compilation and rarities of an artist are always something love to look for.
