"Kevin Parker, the man behind Tame Impala, (has) never wanted to do the same thing twice ... on Currents it’s about adding elements of dance music. Particularly disco ... Currents is for playing out loud to very large groups of people. It’s meant for dancing."
- CBC Music

"... overflowing with deft production trickery, caressing Daft Punk croons and tightly marshalled bursts of guitar ... swooning synths are the order of the day ... a work of dazzling beauty; the layer cake arrangement suggesting Parker as a natural heir to Brian Wilson’s studio wizardry."
- NME

Currents from Australian rock band Tame Impala is the group's third release, dense with heady lyrical introspection. Musically it's the most playful, bold and varied Tame Impala record to date, calling to mind contemporary hip-hop production, Michael Jackson's Thriller, fried 70s funk, Daft Punk, swathes of future pop and emotional 80s balladry, all filtered through a thoroughly modern psychedelic third eye. A genre-bending soundscape fuelled equally by curiosity as it is consciousness, it’s exhilarating new territory for Tame Impala. Lyrically, Currents spans a tumultuous time as bandleader Kevin Parker turns the spotlight on himself and reflects on the road behind, where he finds himself currently, as well as the road ahead.

"I was in L.A. a few years ago ... a friend was driving us around in this old sedan. He was playing the Bee Gees and it had the most profound emotional effect … I was listening to Staying Alive, a song I’ve heard all my life. At that moment it had this really emotive, melancholy feel to it. The beat felt overwhelmingly strong and, at that moment, it sounded pretty psychedelic. It moved me and that’s what I always want out of psych music. I want it to transport me."
- Kevin Parker

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
