After earning practically universal critical adoration for his first album, Psychic Chasms, Neon Indian mastermind Alan Palomo is finally ready his second offering.
Neon Indian’s sophomore album, Era Extrana, will be released September 13th. Here’s a video for the song “Heart: Decay” off of the upcoming LP.

While understandably pressed for time due to performing at massive festivals like South by Southwest and Bonnaroo and touring with the Flaming Lips, Phoenix, and Massive Attack, fans can’t help but be antsy for new material.
To create the newa lbum, Palomo holed up in an efficiency apartment in Finland and cobbled it together from journal entries he made during the time. The album has Neon Indian treading darker waters and exploring a little more somber territory.
