The Currents Collectors Edition box set includes the 2015 album on limited red marbled vinyl with alternate artwork, a 12" featuring two remixes, a 7" and flexidisc with three b-sides. Plus a poster and a zine of images and scribbles offering a candid glimpse into the making of Currents.
Dense with heady lyrical introspection, musically the most playful, bold and varied Tame Impala record to date, Currents finds Kevin Parker putting down his weapons and embracing change as the only constant – sonically, thematically, and personally. Musically, Currents sounds like the work of an artist at the top of his game and having a blast, indulging his whims and unafraid to dive down the rabbit hole after an idea.
Again operating as a one man studio band, Currents calls to mind contemporary hip hop production, Thriller, fried '70s funk, the irreverent playground Daft Punk presented on Discovery, swathes of future pop and emotional '80s balladry, all filtered through a thoroughly modern psychedelic third eye. A genre-bending soundscape fueled equally by curiosity as it is consciousness, it's exhilarating new territory for Tame Impala.
