Back in February 2020, a month or so before the COVID-19 pandemic took hold and changed the course of the months to come, Kevin Parker, mastermind of the indie/psychedelic band Tame Impala, released a new album.

The Slow Rush was a dense, layered listening experience from Parker, and quickly earned rapturous acclaim. Given what was to come in the months after its release, The Slow Rush is really one of the best records of the year to put on as an escape from the frustration and sadness the year has brought.

With a hopeful eye toward 2021, Tame Impala announced rescheduled North American tour dates — as the pandemic put a stop to Parker’s 2020 plans. In lieu of touring, Tame Impala performed an NPR Tiny Desk (Home) Concert in late August:

The album’s 12 songs fly by in just under an hour, captivating the listener all the while. At the risk of shaping the experience of anybody who turns on The Slow Rush, this quote from Parker in a recent news release sums up the album succinctly:

“A lot of the songs carry this idea of time passing, of seeing your life flash before your eyes, being able to see clearly your life from this point onwards. I’m being swept by this notion of time passing. There’s something really intoxicating about it.”
