Modcast #50: Tame Impala Mixtape #2 - Dominic Simper

Brace yourself your part two of our Tame Impala mixtape series, this time curated by bassist Dominic Simper. Dom doesn't muck around when it comes to the 'mix' part of 'mixtape', with this instalment featuring a variety appearances by the likes of GZA, The Strokes, Warpaint, Lil' Wayne and then some.

Tracklist
1. Aphex Twin - "Alberto Balsalm"
"One of the most meltingly beautiful pieces of music ever created."

2. Lil' Wayne - "I Feel Like Dying" (Flying Lotus Remix)
"I love both FlyLo and Lil Wayne, so this drugged out remix is perfect."

3. The Strokes - "I'll Try Anything Once" ("You Only Live Once" Demo)
"I probably like this more than the album version. Playing with The Strokes at Splendour is one of my teenage boy fantasies come true."

4. Caribou - "Sun"
"Off the new album which I've been listening to heaps in the last week."

5. GZA - "Duel of the Iron Mic"
"Off one on my favourite hip hop albums of all time, Liquid Swords."

6. Foals - "Balloons"
"I only really got into these guys in the last six months. Can't wait to see them live."

7. The Horrors - "Mirror's Image"
"Off one of the better albums of last year, Primary Colours. These boys are all gentleman as well, and brilliant live."

8. Warpaint - "Stars"
"Off one of my favourite EPs of the last year. And they're all babes. Yes please."

9. Ratatat - "Wildcat"
"We did a few shows with these guys last year. They were incredible."

10. Stone Roses - "Fools Gold"
"I don't know, I just really like this song."

11. David Bowie - "Space Oddity"
"This song was playing in our house while I was trying to compile my list. And you can't really go wrong with Bowie."

12. Death in Vegas - "Dirge"
"Tim from DIV helped engineer our album. I hadn't really listened to much DIV back then, but since meeting him have gone back in time to discover them and they're now one of my favourite groups."

13. Explosions in the Sky - "A Song for Our Fathers"
"Explosions in the sky are my sleeping music. I put them on most nights when I go to bed."
