neon indian - Era Extrana
Two year since assisting the birth of the "chillwave" subset with debut 'Psychic Chasms - a 2009 end-of-year favourite from NME to Picthfork - Alan Palermo presents his second Neon Indian album. To assist the writing process he sequestered himself in Finland during the winter solstice months of 2010/11, and returned with a finely layered collision of shoegaze, electro-pop and chiptune memes which were tenderly masticated by producer Dave Fridmann (Flaming Lips, MGMT) and spat out as a chrome coloured bubblegum of ultra-modern, retro-fetishitic pop. Palermo sums up the forlorn mood of the album best with his statement that "we're now living in the era mysticized by a lot of future-geared 70s and 80s cinema, but it's definitely not quite how they imagined it.", and 'Era Extraña' certainly has that eerily empty sense of yearning for unfulfilled teenage dreams articulated by ransacking the most emotive strains of pop music and culture for any lingering essence of romance.
