He may not be too keen on the idea of releasing a new album any time soon, but Tame Impala’s frontman Kevin Parker certainly hasn’t ruled out mixtapes. Kevin Parker’s Island Getaway is the 149th addition to Modular Records’ Modcast project and has a cruisey, summer vibe, justifying the title.
The mixtape, which is available to stream in its entirety and also free to download, kicks off with Panda Bear and also features tunes from King Crimson, Beck, Royskopp and plenty more. Island Getaway spans a full 52-minutes, making for a solid mix. Modcast #149 is the second time Parker has contributed to the series, with his last mix coming in as Modcast #52.
Parker must be striking while the creative iron is hot. Tame Impala continue to dominate charts and awards ceremonies the world over including our very own APRA Awards, which sees the band very well represented.
