Neon Indian Plays Fallon

I don’t think it’s a coincidence that the first time I listened to Neon Indian’s “Terminally Chill,” I was sitting in my recliner, letting my Radioshack back massager work its magic, and sipping on a glass of red wine.

A relatively new project by composer Alan Palomo, Neon Indian creates hazy pop, centered around “the themes of drug induced heartbreak, weary afternoons, and lost chances.” To me, “Terminally Chill” sounds like the music that should have been played when Phoebe Cates wore that red swimsuit in Fast Times. It’s an early 80s daydream complete with chirping birds, “like the days when lovesick haze chemical fried…”

The band recently hit up Jimmy Fallon and announced it will be playing at this year’s Bonnaroo.

Psychic Chasms is out now on Lefse Records.
