Neon Indian: RCRD Collection
Many are mistaken. They think Neon Indian, the solo project of Alan Palomo, operates with one sound ("chillwave") that fell out of style just as quickly as it was adopted. For the truth, check his new record Era Extraña or revisit Psychic Chasms and notice that many legitimately great songs rest firmly beneath the haze. Really, Neon Indian is a restless sonic explorer with a deep understanding of pop, which makes him a no-brainer for our RCRD Collection series.
Download or stream his picks from our catalog. From the lush, sampledelic pop of The War On Drugs to Laurel Halo's IDM meets frozen lake electronica and Eric Copeland's trash day collages to Ducktails' hazy, nostalgic drones, these are not only a blueprint for Palomo's writing, but some of the catchiest, weirdest music available today.
