Neon Indian’s Alan Palomo turns solo with new album ‘World Of Hassle’.
The Texas-born artist specialises in retro-futurist electronics, releasing three wonderful albums under his primary moniker. His previous album landed in 2015, and as sessions continued the producer reached a road block – opting to discard his previous over-arching themes, he also discontinued Neon Indian as a name, embracing a broader sense of freedom.
So, Alan Palomo it is then. New album ‘World Of Hassle’ is out on September 15h, led by last month’s excellent ‘Nudista Mundial ’89’ single – which boasted a guest spot from Mac DeMarco.
Alan Palomo has scheduled a burst of Stateside live shows for October and November, while also sharing his excellent tongue-in-cheek new synth burner ‘Stay At Home DJ’.
With its wry cry of “everybody’s a DJ” is moves from yacht rock atmospherics to warm analogue synths, before making room for that Roxy-esque saxophone solo.
Backed by some nifty animated visuals – think Jem, or He-Man – it’s a cool 80s roller that dares to have fun.
Tune in now.
