Review: Neon Indian - Era Extraña
A very nice synth-based pop record. Lots of flashes of 80s brilliance here with some analog-type noodling to keep things interesting. Though rooted in the past, Neon Indian also stretches the boundaries of this type of music - this doesn't sound dated or tired, which is a problem when dealing in this genre. The rhythms are particularly engaging, with a fresh, bouncy step. Very recommended.
Available on LP, CD, and MP3. The LP comes with a download coupon which gets you uncompressed WAV files.
