New Track – Tame Impala : Elephant (Todd Rundgren Remix)

Tame Impala‘s rumbling epic ‘Elephant‘ gets the remix treatment from legendary rock experimentalist Todd Rundgren.

TAME IMPALA REMIX DAFT PUNK

Tame Impala and Daft Punk might seem like an unlikely musical pairing, but the Aussie psych-rockers have an awesome new synthy bass driven remix of Daft Punks, “End of the Line” that might be even better than the original.
