I just love when I like side projects better than the music of the band that they are spun off from. Let me introduce to you Neon Indian. Alan Palomo of the band Ghosthustler, and also known as the artist VEGA has spun off some of his recordings that just weren’t right for either of his other two personas into new moniker Neon Indian.
Here is ‘Sleep Paralysist’. use the download link to have the song for yourself as well.
Neon Indian came to be in 2009 after a few of Palomo’s ‘extra’ tracks were posted around the internet and picked up by some influential indie music taste-makers. Pitchfork gave credit to the debut EP Psychic Chasms as Best New Music of 2009.
Neon Indian is also getting a big push now after being picked up by Mountain Dew and their Green Label Sound promotion to introduce great underground music to the masses.
