Editors’ Notes

“Heart: Attack”—the minute-long intro of Neon Indian's 2011 album Era Extraña—instantly brings to mind the ‘80s-based, synth-heavy psychedelia of previous Neon Indian albums (2009’s Psychic Chasms and its 2010 follow-up, Mind CTRL: Psychic Chasms Possessed). But the next song, “Polish Girl,” is a sexy departure that has more in common with the cosmic disco of Air, Phoenix, or Vega (the other electro-tinged project fronted by Neon Indian’s Alan Polomo). The gauzy, shoegaze-inspired tune “The Blindside Kiss” blends Isn’t Anything–era My Bloody Valentine guitars with plenty of Psychocandy-era Jesus and Mary Chain reverb. Some Moog-like undulations hint at Stereolab’s retro-futurism on “Hex Girlfriend” before the tune takes a detour into more electronically flourished dream pop. Fans of Ariel Pink’s penchant for pumping beauty through murky fidelity will find a comforting familiarity in the instrumental “Heart: Decay” before the title track contrasts big distorted bass lines with shimmering electro-pop.

Customer Reviews


There are sounds in this album that you have never heard before. Trust me, they do not imitate any other artist or music. In Neon Indian's music the listener finds him or herself captivated by noises unknown to the common man. And these noises resound within our beings, within our souls. The electronic music of Neon Indian at times can sound like they should be played in a grand cathedral and at other times in a raving club and yet at other times within an old Atari video game. That is what makes this music great and interesting; you can sit with this album for hours discovering different sounds, unique in their own ways. So give it a listen, and you'll lose yourself.

Thank You Alan.

This is just as good as Washed Outs Within and Without. please do a tour together.

Alan knows what's up

I was expecting a popier sound, a more mainstream appeal type of an album seeing his fame level right now, but he kept it legit and listenable. He sort of is picking up where he left off, but with a more "i got this" aproach. he's definately a solid musician. i cant forget the rest of the band as well though.

Best tracks: Future sick, Halogen (I might be a shadow), Suns irrupt, polish girl, and hex girlfriend.
ok so I labled almost the entire album, so what.

only mistake: heart release needs to be 4629538765239874658274652 times longer

Initially appearing as a blurry, sample-driven electronic pop project with influences ranging from Todd Rundgren to Italo-disco, Neon Indian emerged as one of the flagship acts of the chillwave style during the summer of 2009. Over time, the project adopted fleshed-out instrumentation, higher production values, and funkier, more danceable rhythms. Neon Indian began as the multimedia project of Mexican-born, Texas-based musician Alan Palomo, formerly of the band Ghosthustler and the solo dance music...
