MP3: “Hex Girlfriend” (Twin Shadow Remix)

VIDEO: “Fallout” (Dir. by Lilfuchs)

Neon Indian announces an exclusive Record Store Day release, the “Hex Girlfriend” 10″ which will feature the album version of the track as the A-Side and the Twin Shadow remix of the same song as the B-Side. The 10″ is limited to 500 copies and will only be available on April 21, Record Store Day. 200 of the 500 copies will be pressed on translucent coke bottle green vinyl & 200 have an opaque blue swirl on the coke bottle green. The band is preparing for a massive Spring Tour with Purity Ring, Friends and Lemonade, starting with a very special performance at the Museum of Modern Art on March 7th, see updated dates below.


Neon Indian is the brainchild of Alan Palomo, who’s 2009 debut record Psychic Chasms not only earned the 20 year-old a spot on numerous year-end lists, but assisted the forming of a genre that, though known by a few names now (hypnagogic pop, glo-fi, chillwave), summoned a very unique and specific electro-mangled sound. Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, and SPIN all praised Palomo for his adventurous new sound, and he was tapped to perform at top festivals like South by Southwest, Bonnaroo, and Sasquatch and also scored opening slots for bands ranging from Massive Attack and The Flaming Lips to Phoenix and Chromeo. Written and recorded last winter in an efficiency apartment in Helsinki, Finland during its short solstice days, Era Extraña was ice sculpted from arpeggiated synth-scapes and scribbled journal entries made during his stint there alone in constant solitude. “It’s the closest you can get to feeling like you’re at the edge of the earth,” he says. “And there were moments where I lost sight of what I was really there to do.” Era Extraña was released on September 13th, 2011 on Palomo’s own Static Tongues imprint in conjunction with Mom + Pop Music in the United States, Transgressive Records in the United Kingdom and Europe, Dine Alone in Canada, Arts&Crafts in Mexico, Pop Frenzy/Inertia in Australia and Big Nothing Records in Japan.

“Rather than the deeply submerged sounds of its debut – which drew the attention of the Flaming Lips, who tapped the band for a collaborative EP – Mr. Palomo is taking the same milky synths and putting them to use in pop that’s crisp and ecstatic.” – The New York Times
