neon indian :: deadbeat summer

More nostalgia-laced, psychedelic "dream-wave" from secretive Austin/Brooklyn duo Neon Indian: you guys seemed to be way into the first two tracks I posted from these guys, but this one might be the best of the bunch. Look for the group's debut EP, Psychic Chasms, coming soon:

I hadn't ever heard that Beach House track before (rain in numbers). Maybe its just the production, but I loved it.

Neon Indian aren't bad either.

This Neon Indian track is donning a sample from the first few seconds of Todd Rundgren's "Izzat Love." Fucking awesome. I can't figure out who's responsible for the Brooklyn side of this project.

Mmmm, I'm pretty positive this is Alan's doing. Vox definitely give it away.
