PREVIEW: DOWNLOAD Neon Indian’s “Terminally Chill” MP3
WE GIVE IT: 14/20 Watts
At only 21 years of age, Neon Indian‘s Alan Palomo is the man behind the trippy, nostalgic psychedelia that fills Psychic Chasms. On what comes off as a very impressive debut record, Palomo keeps a high-energy, yet drowsy feel constant. The listener drifts at a steady pace, sometimes getting caught up enough to dance on tracks like “Terminally Chill” and the title number, “Psychic Chasms.” However, on songs such as “Should Have Taken Acid with You” and the closer, “Ephemeral Artery,” you’re so buried by the pure strength of the sound around you, that you can only enjoy the scenery as it appears on every side.
