Neon Indian (aka Alan Palomo) has announced the long awaited follow up to 2011s Era Extraa and this years 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 hed 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, DFAs Plantain Studios in New York, Pure Xs practice space in Austin, Ben Allens studio in Atlanta, and mixed in Brooklyn with Alex Epton (XXXchange). Upon its completion, Alan noted most of what Ive 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.
