It has been quite a while since we last heard from Neon Indian. Well, Alan Palomo is back with a sunny, grooving bop that could soundtrack the summer. The single is called Annie and you can listen to it right here:
Annie can now be streamed on Spotify or purchased on iTunes. Listen and jam!
Neon Indian recently conducted a talk entitled “Auteurs In The Ether” at a TEDx conference in Martha’s Vineyard. Alan dives into the issue of having a single-minded focus on authorship, and looks to answer the question “if your inspiration comes from an inner monologue or an open dialogue, does either one make it any less original an expression?”. There are also some great references to the ways in which DIY culture, originality, and creativity are all changing, and why those changes don’t need to be considered negatively.
It has become easier and easier to do-it-yourself, you could argue that the “learn three chords and start a band” ideology behind punk, was reborn in the mid-2000s, but instead of a beat up guitar and a pawn shop amp, you scored a copy of Ableton Live and a second-hand laptop. We thought DIY empowerment was punk, now we are literally doing it all ourselves.
New Neon Indian music alert! Alan Palomo has released a ew track under his Neon Indian moniker, for inclusion in the brand Grand Theft Auto V game (y’know, the one Wavves also has an entire radio station in, which just so happens to also feature FIDLAR. Hooray!). Stream ‘Change of Coast’ now.
“Change of Coast” is available to purchase as part of the official “The Music of Grand Theft Auto V” soundtrack over on iTunes.
Just announced — Neon Indian will release a brand new remix EP on April 9, ‘Errata Anex’ (hey woah look, it’s an anagram of ’Era Extraña’). The EP will feature remixes of previous album tracks from Twin Shadow, Actress, Patten, Optimo, and Boyd Rice.

We love Anthony Bourdain. So we love that last night’s (final) season premiere of Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations featured two Mom+Pop bands. The episode was shot in Austin back in March during SXSW. Bourdain caught up with Alan Palomo of Neon Indian to make the rounds at his favorite Austin haunts and hotspots, and then spent some time with Derek and Alexis from Sleigh Bells (along with a whole mess of their friends, and a whole mess of crawdads). You can catch a portion of the Sleigh Bells segment above, and the Neon Indian piece (along with the full Sleigh Bells piece) over on The Audio Perv.
