At Coachella, Tame Impala and his band were playing through, “Why Don’t You Make Up Your Mind?” when a surprise guest interrupted. Out emerged A$AP Rocky wanting to play his version “Sundress,” which fittingly samples the aforementioned Tame Impala track. After a memorable duet, Rocky opted to try something a little more psychedelic, so he turned towards his glistening “L$D” track from theAT.LONG.LAST.A$AP album. It was a special two-song performance from the rapper who embedded himself effortlessly into the pop/psych-rock band.
The lysergic Australian music project led by multi-instrumentalist Kevin Parker recently released “Patience” and “Borderline,” after a lengthy hiatus. The former of these, aptly titled as could be, was Parker’s first release since 2015, and succeeds in laying the tone for what’s to come next from the forthcoming Tame Impala LP.

After transitioning from psych-rock darling act to mainstream popularity with their 2015 album, Currents, Tame Impala has kept fans on edge as they gear up for their next record. Having released the first single of the project, “Patience,” in March, the Australian band seems to be gearing up for something big with their next one, “Borderline.” The track comes right in time for their headlining Coachella performances.
“Borderline” expands on the danceable and electronic-leaning sound they began to explore on Currents. Distant vocals float textured keys and thick bass, making for a crossover piece as warm and sunny as the Indio desert. Such an aesthetic is one the band has clearly mastered by now, and is yet another exciting peak into an album that has kept fans waiting for four years.
Sia, Diplo, and Labrinth have unleashed their debut album as LSD, featuring infectious tracks like “Angel in Your Eyes.” Oliver Heldens teams up with Devin and Nile Rodgers for the breezy “Summer Lover,” and Gareth Emery and Ashley Wallbridge an emotive new collaboration, “Amber Sun.” Avicii fans rejoiced a few days ago with the release of a posthumous song, “SOS,” with Aloe Blacc (and there may be more on the way!) Claptone thrills with a grooving remix of Purple Disco Machine‘s “Body Funk,” and Adventure Club, Krewella, and Crankdat deliver the powerful “Next Life.” Fox Stevenson follows February’s “Out My Head” with “Go Like,” and Galantis reveal a summer-primed remix of Kygo and Valerie Broussard‘s “Think About You.” Tame Impala leads us into the weekend with a smooth new single, “Borderline,” and Matrix & Futurebound reveal their first LP in 12 years with tracks like “Spellbound.” Cassian has released a take on RÜFÜS DU SOL‘s iconic “Treat You Better,” and Armin van Buuren kicks off Trilogy with Shapov with “La Résistance De L’amour.” Robotaki debuts a new EP, featuring songs like “Beaches,” and The Chemical Brothers kick off their latest album with tunes like title track “No Geography.”
As each week brings a succession of new music from some of electronic music’s biggest artists, here’s a selection of tracks that shouldn’t be missed this NMF.
