MP3 At 3PM: Neon Indian

Neon Indian is back with Era Extraña, the follow-up to 2009 debut Psychic Chasms. Chillwave poster boy Alan Palomo recorded the new album in Helsinki, Finland, alone during the short solstice days, and it took his music in a darker direction. Thematically, the LP draws on the concept of what cyberpunk means in 2011; the word “extraña” translates from Spanish into “strange” as well as to “command the act of longing.” Era Extraña is due out September 13 via Palomo’s Static Tongues label, and a tour kicks off September 15 in Philadelphia. But right now, you can download album track “Fallout” below.
