SOME STUFFS: Neon Indian has new album and tour ready this fall

What you are looking at is the official cover for Neon Indian‘s forthcoming album, Era Extraña (Static Tongues).

What will Neon Indian’s music sound like? The bio says Era Extraña is an “8-bit shoegaze record… peering through the fence of a teenage apocalypse drive-in flick.” Personally, I was sold with “8-bit” but… listen and see for yourself how that translates to the real thing. It sounds like the kind of demo tapes that surfaced in the mid-1980’s that managed to turn on 17 people, as if it was waiting to mature. The song below is part of a 3-part “movement” on the album, but shows how much Neon Indian has nurtured himself in the last two ears. It’s mature.
