Neon Indian's First Tour

Neon Indian: "Terminally Chill"

As we reach the waning weeks of summer we get a slew of tour dates from Neon Indian, the band who delivered one of the best records of the past three months. Psychic Chasms (10/13 Lefse) delivers a hazy pop sweetness that while adhering to current musical trends manages to stay wholly unique. Alan Palomo the artist behind the like-minded and equally awesome Vega, uses his lo-fi psychedelic production and writing techniques to craft songs that sound as nostalgic as a late summer afternoon, yet thumping enough to play at a late night party. See tour dates beginning in Texas and stretching to the Music Hall of Williamsburg after the jump.

Definitely feeling the nostalgia. Cool tune!

I am a huge italo disco fan and was upset to find out that Neon Indian ripped off of one of the genres most beloved song. I asked them about it on their myspace page but they erased my comments and blocked me. Obviously they are trying to pull a fast one. I wouldn't care if they credited the song or wrote back to me but they didn't have the decency to respond so I am going around spreading this information on blogs.

Listen for yourself and pass the information along if you feel inclined:

Other than that I really like their album, I just don't like people that steal.
