WATCH: Tame Impala Covers Outkast’s “Prototype”

You wouldn’t immediately expect Aussie psych-rockers Tame Impala to take a liking to Outkast B-Sides, but the band proved us wrong recently with a cover of Andre 3000’s The Love Below burner “Prototype” on Triple J’s “Like A Version” program. A band like Outkast borders on untouchable but Tame Impala keeps things straightforward here with a smoltering groove-funk take on Three Stacks’ deeper, softer side cut from the classic album that is now nearing its ten year anniversary. Check it out below.

…and the ridiculous and incredible Outkast video for comparison.
