Vega Intl. Night School is possibly even more esoteric than Era Extraña, yes.

Annie is one the best songs of the summer. Looking forward to this one.

"More TBA" fortunately, but it's not often you see an Aussie tour with a Wollongong date but without a Melbourne one.

Hands down the best

I've had Annie and Slumlord constantly on constant repeat. Fucking stoked. Al Pal is greatest human alive. So jealous, Laz.

Never heard this before. But its the reason I tend to stray around this part of the forum.
Do any of you have any recs from his discography ?

He's only got two full albums under Neon Indian, both are great, also has a few other singles released here and there, my favourite is Sleep Paralysist.

Reactions?

I can barely recall a note. It's the first album this year I've been really pumped for that's disappointed me. The fact he's not really making chillwave any more doesn't help.

Stunned by the really good score on RYM. Loaded it up and expected to see it somewhere around 2.5 and it's at 3.55, well ahead of either previous album.

I liked this thing a hell of a lot. Annie is one of the songs of the year - definitely a great summer jam when it came out - and there is a bit of funk permeating the thing that should get him extracted from the whole "chillwave is dead" bullshit mentality if the reviews do the album justice.

What's up, guys! How ARE you. Hello and welcome, as I am here for a review.

I was initially terrified to even listen to this album, because I had built it up so much in my head over the past four years, I had no idea what to expect, I was afraid that it would suck, that it would be hated by everyone for being too 2k9, that every review would just be "chillwave is dead;' airbrushed directly onto a screen. When Stereogum had a thing about The Glitzy Hive a week before the album was released, they were like "well ummmm its really 2k9 lol" and I was freaking, man! Worrying about your favourite band's relevance is an unfamiliar feeling on this forum, the sensations were new and overpowering. And then the album started streaming, and... I didn't like it! I couldn't remember a bar, like Ax. Maybe it was because I was listening to it on my laptop's speakers, so it sounded like a wax cylinder recording being played on a Commodore 64, but I felt flat and afraid. And then, finally, it all sunk in.

this album is fUCKING GREAT

& fuck stereogpum.


Seriously, this album is so much more dense and conceptual than his earlier stuff, I'm just absolutely rapt. Everything about it is absolutely wonderful once all the layers in the songs sink in. It's also absolutely thematically perfect for this stage of my life, and god, the tunes man! Dear Skorpio Magazine, Smut!, News From the Sun, C'est La Vie, The Glitzy Hive. They're all fucking great. I loved Annie and Slumlord, but was deeply afraid they would be the only standouts. But I love every damn track, I've had the album on almost nonstop for the past month and am still not inclined to stop. I legit think it is equal to To Pimp A Butterfly on the ol ultrafav, and it may in fact be better because it does not end with Alan Palomo speaking to the spirit of Giorgio Moroder.
