CHOON OF THE DAY: "SLUMLORD" - Neon Indian
Once a chillwave wonder, now synth pop revivalists, Neon Indian might be delivering one of the strongest contenders for the album of the year if judged only by the quality of its first two singles. Following the rapturous "Annie", Alan Palomo's band delivers the energetic "Slumlord" as a further tease before their 3rd studio album "VEGA INTL. NIGHT SCHOOL" drops 16th October. In the year where Hot Chip and Toro Y Moi's albums hugely disappointed, it might be Neon Indian saving indietronica's good name. In pop music categories "Slumlord" is as stellar as it gets.
