Neon Indian Triumphantly Return To Jimmy Fallon

The last time Neon Indian played on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, they had something of a moment, with Fallon full-on dorking out for them. The band returned last night to play their new single "Polish Girl," and things went much the same way, with the usually-enthusiastic Fallon getting even more into the… More »

Neon Indian – “Polish Girl” Video

Neon Indian's album Era Extraña is out today, and now we've also got a video for the advance track "Polish Girl." The clip looks almost exactly like a low-budget '80s sci-fi movie, which means it's very much in keeping with the whole Neon Indian aesthetic. It follows the story of a disconnected cyborg… More »

Neon Indian Era Extraña Comment Party

You've heard a bunch of songs from Era Extraña -- "Polish Girl," "Arcade Blues," "Hex Girlfriend", maybe even more -- and according to the frenzy in the comment section, you probably entered to win one of Alan Palomo's synths. Now NPR is offering a stream of the record. We're listening. More »

Neon Indian – “Arcade Blues”

We've already heard a handful of tracks from Neon Indian's new album Era Extraña: "Fallout," "Polish Girl," "Hex Girlfriend." Now here's another new one, "Arcade Blues." It's a twinkling, forlorn indie-pop tune with a beat made out of sound effects that, I'm pretty sure, come from Mortal Kombat. Hear it:… More »

Neon Indian – “Hex Girlfriend”

We've already heard "Fallout" and "Polish Girl," and now here's another track from Neon Indian's new album Era Extraña. It's a bright, fuzzy bit of guitar-pop without too much of the decayed-synth squiggle that's become one of the group's trademarks. Actually, the track might be the clearest example we've yet heard of frontma… More »

Stereogum Monthly Mix: August 2011

We took last month off from our Monthly Mix series in favor of our midterm flashback/annual summer jams compilation Cruel Summer, which you should grab if you haven't. But it is a new month -- the last one of Summer 2011 -- so here's a filtered recap of the month's finest free… More »

Neon Indian – “Polish Girl”

The lovelorn "Fallout"'s made the rounds, now there's another serving from Alan Palomo's forthcoming Era Extraña. It's called "Polish Girl," it is about a Polish girl, and it makes interesting, intuitive allies out of Neon Indian and M83 vis a vis the latter's "Midnight City." Beyond the obvious synth-ronicity between their approaches to… More »

Neon Indian – “Fallout”

Here's the first MP3 from Neon Indian's excellent new LP Era Extraña. As seen over a series of short video-teasers, Alan Palomo holed up in Helsinki for part of the album process (work was finished upstate New York with Dave Fridmann), though the album itself looks more to the UK, channeling old 4AD,… More »

Neon Indian – “Heart : Decay” Video

Young Alan Palomo is readying his second LP as Neon Indian, titled Era Extraña. Unlike the somewhat obfuscated and anonymous rollout for Psychic Chasms, this time Alan is ready for his closeup -- this video, for the Part Two ("Decay") of the album's three-part instrumental "Heart" piece, has Palomo traipsing around the Era Extraña'… More »

Neon Indian Era Extraña Info

Washed Out moved beyond "chillwave" to something sturdier on Within And Without. Toro Y Moi did the same via his Underneath The Pine. Now it's time to see if Alan Palomo can build upon the success of 2009's Psychic Chasms and escape pigeonholes on new album Era Extraña. He wrote and recorded it… More »

How Independent Rockers Celebrated #IndependenceDay

How did you celebrate July 4th? On a rooftop BBQ listening to our summer mix? Maybe you stayed in and watched old episodes of Hoarders on Roku? Maybe I stayed in and did that. There is no way to know. But all across this great country we do know there were fireworks to be… More »

Flaming Lips x Neon Indian – “Is David Bowie Dying?”

We saw pictures and videos of The Flaming Lips' Wayne Coyne collaborating with Neon Indian's Alan Palomo. (There were also related Tweets about dropping acid.) The resulting 12-inch is already sold out -- only 1000 copies of the EP were made, and they were sold in Dallas and Oklahoma City at one record store… More »

Inaugural Governors Ball Coming To NYC

Organizers just announced the lineup for the first ever Governors Ball Festival in New York City on Governor's Island, of course. The festival takes place June 18. The schedule isn't up yet, but since they promise "no overlapping sets," I'm guessing it'll all be on one big stage, all day. UPDATE: Looks like it'… More »

Wayne Coyne And Neon Indian Take Acid, Collaborate

No longer just a tease: Wayne Coyne and Neon Indian's Alan Palomo have been hinting at a collaboration between their bands over Twitter, and it looks like the two got together over this snowy weekend in New York to work on some songs. Their collaboration is part of the Flaming Lips' plans to release… More »

@WayneCoyne Teases Neon Indian Collab

From the cesspool of hashtags, overshares, and lunch-order updates that is Twitter comes a little something worth shining a light on, via the frequently follow-worthy @WayneCoyne account. (I haven't followed since his account launch, but that week he twitpic'd a few photos of his wife's bare bum, which really isn't a big deal since you… More »

Neon Indian Covers T. Rex

I'm used to people covering Neon Indian, but here's chillwave's biggest Marc Bolan fan putting his spin on T. Rex's "Children Of The Revolution." The track won't see an official release, but Fat Possum's in the midst of reissuing T. Rex's classic album, and this cover's obviously a way to raise interest in those… More »

Neon Indian – “Mind, Drips” Video

IFC.com just premiered Neon Indian's video for "Mind, Drips." The coolest part of the video are the undulating waves of color, achieved with a piece of technology that the directors invented, the LZX Visionary, "... an analog video synthesizer that manipulates images in the same way an audio synthesizer does for sound." According to… More »
