We want this. We want this so bad. Synth pop band Neon Indian’s sophomore album, Era Extraña, drops on September 13, and one of the disc bundles comes with a custom mini-synth called the PAL 198X.
Neon Indian twanged onto the scene (theremins abuzz) in 2009 with their debut disc, Psychic Chasms, and have only continued to hone their skills (and build out their band) in the ensuing years. The band even collaborated with Wayne Coyne as part of the Flaming Lips frontman’s recent descent into experimental genius/madness.
While we’re decidedly jazzed about the new album’s impending droppage (check out the track “Polish Girl,” it’s quite rad), we’re also really into electronic shizz, such as the aforementioned synth, which was designed with Bleep Labs to be included in the limited-edition Deluxe Package ($49.99).
Check out frontman Alan Palomo flaunting his acting chops in the above video, which also features cats, trippy graphics and a subtle dig at Witch House (OOoooOO no he didn’t).
