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.
“Going full on electro-pop for “Polish Girl,” Palomo uses a soundscape that seems to encompass all your favorite Nintendo games. Singing about a particularly forgetful girl he manages to express the frustrations of spending all his time on the road.” Read the rest of the article on NPR.
Buy “Polish Girl” on iTunes today! Era Extraña is out September 13. You can pre-order a physical copy of Era Extraña at www.neonindian.com.
