Watch Tame Impala Cover OutKast’s “Prototype”

Tame Impala covering OutKast?

OK.

The band stopped by Australia’s triple j radio station for the “Like A Version” segment that has an act cover a song they love. Tame Impala picked “Prototype” by OutKast, one of their all-time favorites, and it is pretty faithful to the original. It’s always a little surprising when a rock band goes hip-hop, but “Prototype” isn’t really even hip-hop, and once you hear it you realize it’s not much of a stretch. A slightly trippy atmosphere, a hint of funk, and a smooth, chilled out vibe make this song right up the psychedelic Aussies’ alley.
