Shot on location in Syndey and directed by Cara Stricker, “Echoplex” comes from the band’s recently-released debut album, Illumination, which features contributions from Swedish singer MAI, Melbourne-based chanteuse Kimbra, Dappled Cities’ Tim Derricourt, and Neon Indian/Vega’s Alan Palomo.
Watch the video down below and let us know what you think.
Though it’s not completely necessary to do such a thing, Neon Indian fans are pretty excited right now. Myself included. Neon Indian will be releasing, well, re-releasing Psychic Chasms as Mind Ctrl: Psychic Chasms Possessed.
The record will be released as remastered deluxe edition on CD and for you vinyl heads, on double Vinyl on September 28th. The album will be out digitally on August 31 on the FADER Label / Static Tongues. The new record contains nine bonus tracks which has exclusive remixes and cover versions by Toro Y Moi, DNTEL, Bibio, Javelin, YACHT and more. Talk about a Chillwave fest.
Neon Indian will be emarking on another tour this Fall with Prefuse 73 and Modern Mystery favorites, Miniature Tigers, in addition to their previously announced tour dates they will be headlining with Chromeo and Phoenix.
Singer/songwriter Jesse Woods has also recently done a highly acclaimed cover of Neon Indian’s “Mind, Drip,” which you can listen to below, as well as the original.

Whenever, and if ever, two of your favorite band’s tour together, most people consider it extremely lucky. Yesterday it was announced that the Miniature Tigers are not only doing their first headlining tour, but they are taking The Spinto Band along with them as openers.
Can we say ‘Dream team’? Because I’m going to.
The groups will be taking over the U.S. in full force this summer for your listening pleasure.
The Miniature Tigers have also just released their first video for the single “Gold Skull,” from Fortress (Modern Art), due out July 27th. The new record was produced by no other than The Morning Benders’ frontman, Chris Chu, and also features a produced track (“Gold Skull”) by Alan Palomo, better known as Neon Indian. The Spinto Band are also working on new material so be prepared to be filled with new tunes this summer by both bands.
Check out the tour dates below, and the new video from the Mini T’s!
