Says Adult Swim: “When we heard “Fallout” from Neon Indian’s new record, Era Extrana, we knew we had to do something with him. So we tracked his ass down and said “let us make you a video!” He said “Uhhh, sure…” and we immediately called Lilfuchs, who made this homage to 80’s toons and sexy commercials. Put your arm around someone and click on this bad boy.”
OK, the lineup for this year’s Primavera Festival is outrageous: A$AP Rocky, AraabMUZIK, Atlas Sound, Beirut, Björk, Black Lips, Danny Brown, Death Cab For Cutie, Death Grips, Dirty Beaches, Girls, Grimes, Hype Williams, Japandroids, Justice, Liturgy, Mazzy Star, Melvins, Napalm Death, Neon Indian, OFF!, Real Estate, Refused, SBTRKT, Sharon Van Etten, Spiritualized, The Cure, The Drums, The Rapture, The War On Drugs, The xx, Trash Talk, Washed Out, Wavves, Wilco, Yo La Tengo and about a hundred other bands.
The first clip from yesterday’s new release, Era Extrana. In keeping with his general aesthetic, it looks like a 80s sci-fi flick, and follows a Daft Punk-helmeted lovelorn cyborg. Plus, it’s another brilliant collaboration with The Creators Project. Catch Neon Indian tonight on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon”.
This Week: St. Vincent’s third and most approachable album yet; Girls’ second release is heavy-hearted but even better than their last; Neon Indian expands his 80s crush; Das Racist’s first studio effort is smart, though they can still annoy; Grizzly Bear’s Chris Taylor and Twin Shadow’s George Lewis Jr. impress as CANT.
