Neon Indian - "Deadbeat Summer"

When it concerns the 80s, Austin's Alan Palomo is master of all sounds funky, synthesized, and endearingly cheesy. As Neon Indian, 21-year-old Palomo isn't nearly as danceable as with past projects Vega or Ghosthustler—but the songs are every bit as blissfully carefree and catchy. With Psyhcic Chasms, Palomo has created a low fidelity tapestry of sun-drenched and light-hearted psychedelia channeled through a collection of electronic spare parts: swirling whistles and bells, lazer samples, flanger-effected keyboards and woozy reverb-soaked vocals. It may not be summertime, but it sure feels like it.
