Neon Indian

19 06 2009

Ahh dream pop..where have you been? The latest installment of my favorite genre comes from the mysterious Neon Indian, the anonymous collaboration of a Brooklyn girl and a guy from Austin, TX (there’s quite a bit of identity speculation out there, but I have no idea). A lot of people aren’t fans of this “elusive” marketing technique that seems to be en vogue lately (see: The Golden Filter), but I say as long as the music’s good I don’t mind. With all the information overload these days, when you can know everything about anything, it’s kind of nice to get to know an artist solely from their musical output. And I suppose I’m more likely to want to see the live show (I guess I’m just easily manipulated like that).

Their new EP Psychic Chasms will be out later this year, and based on these tracks, it’s gonna be awesome.
