He uses it in all of their gigs and as you can see from the link of the Telefunken company they have identified he uses an m80 dynamic mic. If you watch Tame Impala at the deezer session you can see not only him one but Jay Waston using two as well. Jay has an all gold one and all white one which can be seen at 1:45. In the video link below. Kevin can be seem with an all white one right off the bat. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HOtye4edBbAmore

This mic has a bit of presence to it and can produce plosives if you don't have great control, but for the right kind of vocalist, the sparkle and tone from this mic can go a long way. I like mine so much I want to upgrade to one of the custom finishes. Also makes a very good snare mic. There are some clubs where I've had engineers tell me they didn't like it, but on big stages it's killer and suits my voice well, to my ears anyway.
