Kevin Parker (Tame Impala) Talks with Dan Snaith (Caribou) on the Talkhouse Podcast

The brilliant musicians discuss their differing creative processes and confidence in art, plus take a deep dive on clutch music gear.


Sorry, I tried to write a more “professional” first line, but this is just SO DOPE! Tame Impala‘s Kevin Parker and Caribou‘s Dan Snaith are two of the most fascinating artists working today, and when the Talkhouse Podcast discovered they’re also huge fans of each other’s work, we knew we had to get them together to chop it up.

In this warm and open conversation, the guys get into their very different creative processes; the pluses and minuses of having confidence in your artistic output; the clutch piece of gear Kevin uses to help get that sweet sweet Tame Impala sound; and much more.
