Towards the end of the conversation, Parker reflects on unintentional influences. He touches on the link between of Beach House’s Walk in the Park and Tame Impala’s Feels Like We Only Go Backwards. This moves into a conversation about interpretation and making a song your own.
Rick Rubin talks to Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker about his newest release, The Slow Rush, and his creative process. Kevin shares key influences on some Tame Impala songs and also plays Rick a demo for an unrealized song from his voice memos. Then Kevin turns the tables on Rick, asking about his work on Californication and Yeezus, which yields sage advice on record making.
