By way of Denton, Texas, Mexico-birthed Alan Palomo leads the psych pop group Neon Indian — though this quartet wouldn’t audibly be considered your conventional Latin band in its traditional sense. But since their release of Psychic Chasms in 2009, these guys did indeed create the buzz on the blogosphere, and now rule electro’s chillwave, and Remezlca’s office speakers.

To our delight, Neon Indian has announced the release of their sophomore and highly anticipated record Era Extraña, which will be out in the US market on September 13. According to Pitchfork, the tracks include “Polish Girl”, “Future Sick”, “The Blindside Kiss”, and, best of all, “Hex Girlfriend.” The album was produced by Palomo himself, and had its final polish by indie-rock’s producer Dave Fridmann (who also produced The Flaming Lips, as well as Café Tacuba, Weezer, and others). Below check out the second teaser of a total of a five video series (this one’s Heart Decay, pt. II) for their forthcoming album, plus the tour dates below.
