Neon Indian is an indie electronic band from Denton, Texas. The music is composed by Mexican-born Alan Palomo (born July 24, 1988), also known for his work with the band Ghosthustler and as the artist VEGA. The band's debut, Psychic Chasms, has received many favorable reviews, including the designation of Best New Music and 14th best album of 2009 by Pitchfork Media.
Era Extraña Recorded in Helsinki, Finland during the winter of 2010, Era Extraña (a Spanish language title, literally "Strange Era" or "She Was Strange," depending on the context) was released September 13, 2011 on Palomo's Static Tongues imprint. Soon after the new album's release, Palamo will commence a US tour with bands Com Truise and Purity Ring.
On April 20, 2011, Palomo released a clip from his new album entitled Heart: Attack, which featured shots of Palomo in Helsinki, Finland while a new song titled Heart: Release played in the background. It was said to be the first of a three-part instrumental piece which will be featured on the upcoming album.
The album is currently available as a full stream on NPR's "First Listen" project
