EDITORS’ NOTES

Alan Palomo’s leap from chillwave poster boy to champion of hedonistic dance-pop has been a bold arc indeed. His third album as Neon Indian is the peppy proof—a neon-tinged blast of saturated synths, fat beats, and relentless pop. It’s all destined for the dance floor, from the funk guitar and rattling percussion of “The Glitzy Hive” to the ska-tinged strut of “Annie” to the flittering arpeggios and ’80s disco drive of “Slumlord.” Palomo plays the perfect host throughout, tailoring the party to his immersive soundtrack.

Let's just agree...

... To get ahead of ourselves on this. It's been a patient four year wait away from "Era Extraña." With most artist it's easy to feel the hiatus away from the studio is a testament to how rare and seemingly mythical the creation of an album is; that the artist is bound to inspiration for furthering theirselves or their sound.

Taking time to appreciate both singles available illustrates very clearly that Alan and Neon Indian do not have this problem. There is a very clear idea behind this album that is written into two synth savory tracks offering the sensation that this is the result of four years of thought and diligent work.

It would be fair to tread with caution into most albums after this much time, but there is no lack of quality or intent from this band and personally I am ready to call it. It's obvious enough that we're in for a stellar addition to the Neon Indian Discography.

This band actually never grows old, it's a true fact. Maybe my favorite album of all time.

Uh, it's great.

I mean, 8 bucks for this album? Are you kidding me?! This is at least worth, like, $million.
