Pitchfork TV invited Neon Indian to cover a Prince song for them, and in turn Neon Indian’s Alan Palomo invited a bunch of his friends to join him in the studio for a rousing version of “Pop Life” including Kristin Kontrol (aka Dee Dee of Dum Dum Girls), Holy Ghost!, Young Ejecta, Adeline of Escort, Hannah Cohen, Xenia Rubinos and Midnight Magic.

A few days after Prince’s death, Palomo was asked by The Guardian to write an essay about Prince, obviously one of his all-time heroes and musican inspirations, you can read the essay, titled “Prince, the purple unicorn” here.

PRESS QUOTES ON VEGA INTL. NIGHT SCHOOL:

“The most deluxe, comprehensive Neon Indian album yet.” – PITCHFORK

“Palomo peels back the layers of psychedelia that have sometimes obscured his
work in the past, striving for a directness that results in the most crystallized –
and accessible – version of his aesthetic yet.” – ROLLING STONE

“This is not only Neon Indian’s best record, it is one of the best of the entire
year.” – THE 405

“A grizzly splendor of spindled guitars and futuristic synth lines, while vocally he
reaches for an intone that could reasonably pass as Prince in braggadocio form.”
– UNDER THE RADAR

“The album rewards investment in its world, and that world feels fully realized –
alive, even.” – THE VERGE
