STREAM: “Slumlord” –
Neon Indian (aka Alan Palomo) has announced the long awaited follow up to 2011’s Era Extraña and this year’s standalone single “Annie.” Slated for
release via Mom + Pop on October 16, VEGA INTL. Night School was
conceived during a period of aesthetic reinvention for Palomo, as he retooled the
lo-fi and spontaneous writing style he’d developed as Neon Indian by
incorporating elements of the cleaner production values and dance oriented
approach of his previous recording moniker VEGA, ultimately merging the two
into one fast lane. Developed over a four year period, the album brims with funk-
centric guitar lines, pronounced Balearic rhythms, and the most elaborate
songwriting of his career.

Composed and recorded in a variety of locations including, but not limited to, the
cabin aboard a cruise ship, DFA’s Plantain Studios in New York, Pure X’s
practice space in Austin, Ben Allen’s studio in Atlanta, and mixed in Brooklyn
with Alex Epton (XXXchange). Upon its completion, Alan noted “most of what
I’ve learned about human nature in my twenties has happened after dark. People
are just kind of more honest then. More deliberate. I like to call the places I go to
Night Schools.”

The new album single “Slumlord” arrives alongside an inventive relaunch of his website as Nightschool.biz  The site features an hotline (+1-512-643-VEGA) to receive and send audio of the song and a special voice greeting about the album, in addition to newly announced US tour dates and an album-preorder that comes
with instant grat tracks “Annie” and “Slumlord.” Find a full list of upcoming North American tour dates below.
