Remix: Tame Impala – ‘Cause I’m A Man (HAIM Remix)

Everyone is getting super excited over this remix, and with good reason. Sister trio HAIM have taken Aussie band Tame Impala‘s ‘Cause I’m A Man and made it their own, but amazingly without losing any of the magic of the original. With new vocals and a fresh new ambience, HAIM’s remix/cover is awesome is a real joy to listen to. It’s so nice to see such a successful band show their appreciation of another successful band in this way, just because they’re fans, as HAIM’s Danielle said in a statement on facebook;

“In 2009 I was in japan playing the summer sonic festival with Jenny Lewis as her guitar player. On a day off of the festival we played a side show at astro hall in tokyo with a band from Australia I’d never heard of called Tame Impala. I remember standing in the crowd and not really understanding how this MASSIVE sound was coming off the stage with just 4 people playing. They were one of the best bands I had ever seen live. When I went back to my hotel, i downloaded their ep immediately- told my sisters to also- and since then we’ve seen their incredible shows all over the world at various festivals and loved every record. Sooo needless to say, when we were asked to do this remix we jumped at the chance!! but we’ve never really done a “remix” before so we decided to put out our own spin on the song. Go get Currents if you haven’t yet- you’ll be stoked. – Danielle”
