you wouldn't understand


Two promising new tracks arrived in my inbox last night from mysterious newcomers Neon Indian, an anonymous new collaborative project from "a guy and a girl who make music via correspondence. One in Brooklyn, one in Austin." I've got my guesses as to who these guys are, but for now, just enjoy these spacey, wistfully nostalgic disco-psych jams:

neon indian :: 6669 (i don't know if you know)
neon indian :: should have taken acid with you



Paul Epworth (aka Phones) remixes one of my top 5 favorite songs of '08, Amadou & Mariam's Damon Albarn-produced "Sabali":

amadou and mariam :: sabali (paul epworth remix)

That second Neon Indian track isn't working, which is a shame, as it could be the best song title i've heard in a long, long time.

Definitely blend into the whole dreamy psych-pop craze. With some better production, I def could see these guys being the new MGMT.

If you like Neon Indian then you should definitely check out Daestro, they are from Detroit Michigan, US and are amazing!!! They're from the Ghostly label and they have been making some serious music...

If you think Neon Indian is good you should check out Daestro, they are a electro-ish band/production from Detroit Michigan, USA. They're pumping out some serious music...
