Having trouble getting to sleep? Never fear, Tame Impala auteur Kevin Parker is here to help you find some soothing slumber.
The 33-minute playlist, which was curated for BBC Radio 1’s Phil Taggert.
Tame Impala’s main man Kevin Parker shared a “Bedtime Mix” which help’s you sleep.
The goal is to have a soothing, quiet collection of songs.
The Perth producer has compiled a 33-minute ‘Bedtime Mix’ at the request of BBC Radio 1 host Phil Taggart, with a peaceful playlist that harkens to the neo-RnB and soulful psych-pop of Tame Impala’s Currents album. The mix has got a globe-trotting selection of French electornica, Indian trance, and influential Germans, Kraftwerk, with Kevin explaining in the accompanying interview that he had to pull ‘Autobahn’ off the tour soundtrack as it nearly sent the driver off to sleep and off the road; “It’s that hypnotic and immersive.”

Tame Impala’s 2015 album Currents has been making waves for its spacy kaleidoscopic tracks that fuse dance beats, electronic music and psychedelic rock for a trippy album. Despite its mind-expanding powers,Currents might still be too hard an album lull you into a deep slumber.
“Making a chilled-out playlist is not something I do regularly,” Parker said, “but having been asked to do it, I’m looking back at the playlist now, and I may actually put this on tonight when I go to bed.”
