    Tame Impala are set to release a Live EP on Record Store Day (April 19th) via Modular. Simply titled Live Versions, the eight-track effort features records from their 2013 concert in Chicago

    According to a press release (via Pitchfork), Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker selected the songs “based on how different the live versions are from the album versions. His goal was to give fans something they won’t already have; something they’ve only previously experienced at a Tame Impala show.”

    As a preview, the band has shared an extended, jam-heavy live version of Lonerism opener “Be Above It”. Clocking in at a whopping seven and a half minutes, the song expands and tweaks the original’s arrangement by adding in spacey blasts of synth and swirling psychedelic flourishes towards the end. Listen in below and check out the tracklist.

    01. Endors Toi
