Neon Indian News

NEON INDIAN'S VEGA INTL. NIGHT SCHOOL IS OUT!! "SLUMLORD" VIDEO!

Years have passed since Alan Palomo graced these shores providing live versions of hits like “Should Have Taken Acid With You”, “Terminally Chill” , “Polish Girl" and more from his chill-wave, daytime dance back-catalogue.

Well he's back with VEGA INTL. NIght School. The album boasts slicker production while sticking to Palomo’s ability to create twangy beats nodding unmistakably to 80’s 8-bit laden dancefloors. The new release is reminiscent of Daft Punk’s early work with reliance on progressing, heavy basslines and synth funk melodies (developed by Palomo’s side project, VEGA). It is insanely listenable and will surely stir interest with renewed followers and fresh listeners alike on record and played live.

To coincide with his album we present to you the incredible video for the single "Slumlord".

Neon Indian also made an appearance a few days before album release on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon!

Jaakko Eino Kalevi (Popfrenzy Presents) News

Jaakko Eino Kalevi Debut Australian Tour in October

We're delighted to be bringing over Jaakko Eino Kalevi to Australia in October.

Already something of a cult figure in Helsinki, where he lives and works part-time as a tram driver, Jaakko’s (pronounced “Yah-koh”) debut release for the label is an alluring introduction to a charismatic artist whose softly psychedelic pop blends funk and folk in an intriguing and highly satisfying manner. A self-taught multi-instrumentalist who is happiest behind the drums, Jaakko plays, sings and produces all his own material. Having released a steady stream of diverse music on local labels for several years, Jaakko has long been considered one of Finland’s most promising young artists and with his signing to Weird World becomes the first ever Nordic artist to work with Domino or its subsidiaries in the label’s 20-year history.

Playing in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane, these shows are not to be missed!
