Neon Indian, a psychathetic sunburned side project between Alan Palomo of VEGA and Manhattan video artist Alicia Scardetta, is coming out with their full-length debut, Psychic Chasms (album art above), on October 13th. It'll be released via Lefse Records, who best described the upcoming album: 

"Neon Indian delivers equal parts synthetic nostalgia, Dreampop lullabies, and grinding guitar noise to create something eerier than the sum of its parts. Forged after a hazy winter gathering in Texas, this initial batch of tracks were the result of field recordings, record samples, a collection of bizarre synth sounds... Orbiting around the themes of drug induced heartbreak, weary afternoons, and lost chances, this music provides a lush soundtrack to the deadbeat exploits of teenage ennui."

So far, I already posted a track by the psychelectric duo a month or two ago, but their most recently leaked tune, "Terminally Chill," can't be missed. A hazy, drug-induced trek through a hot summer's day, Neon Indian dance for the sky, because the sun is their disco ball.
