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.

Remember a few months ago we launched our monthly subscription service, Boombox? Well, since then our subscribers have been hand-delivered digital albums from FIDLAR, Wavves and Polica, have been offered exclusive access to singles from Polica, Beat Club, and Smith Westerns, and have received brand new digital EPs from Neon Indian and Kid Astray before any else has even had a look in… and Boombox is only just getting started.
We have a lot of exciting stuff up our sleeves for the rest of the year, and we wanted to give you guys a taster of everything we’ve been working on (because we feel selfish keeping it all to ourselves). Head over to our Soundcloud player to stream the first installment of what will be a semi-regular compilation series from Mom+Pop, this time featuring singles from Jagwar Ma, Polica, Flume, Neon Indian, Hunters, FIDLAR, Wavves, Kid Astray, Mikhael Paskalev, Beat Club, Animal Kingdom, Smith Westerns, Andrew Bird, and Lucius. Phew!
