Neon Indian is a new project from VEGA's Alan Palomo. The Austin/Brooklyn-based duo's debut album Psychic Chasms is scheduled to be released in October via Lefse Records, and is full of warped, electro-psych-pop goodness. I heard a couple of their songs yesterday and they've been playing in my head ever since. Here are some words from the press release:
"Neon Indian delivers equal parts synthetic nostalgia, Dreampop lullabies, and grinding guitar noise to create something eerier than the sum of its parts. Forged after a hazy winter gathering in Texas, this initial batch of tracks were the result of field recordings, record samples, a collection of bizarre synth sounds. Orbiting around the themes of drug induced heartbreak, weary afternoons, and lost chances, this music provides a lush soundtrack to the deadbeat exploits of teenage ennui."Monolith Festival in Colorado this September. The lineup also includes Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Girl Talk, The Thermals, HEALTH and Deer Tick. Sounds like a damn good festival. You can catch VEGA at Club de Ville on Friday, July 17th.
