Tame Impala & Kendrick Lamar : Backwards


Kiwi rapper Tommy Ill sampled Tame Impala’s Feels Like We Only Go Backwards to great effect on mid-2013 mixtape Fearless Bueller, now here’s K-Dot taking hold of K-Parker’s track for the Divergent soundtrack (I don’t know and will never know what Divergent is). Some major reworking strips the Tame Impala track to its core, adding masterful string arrangements in the process. Kendrick goes in hard. Ridiculously hard. It’s just a shitty teen soundtrack dude, chill out! But I suppose we should be thankful the hunger is still real even after the success of good kid, m.A.A.d. city.
