Neon Indian “Era Extrana”

October 9, 2011

More bleeps and bloops for the pioneers of the 16-bit era, Neon Indian. “Polish Girl” reminds me of Mega Man for the SNES. So nice to have a video game system in stereo. That was quite the accomplishment in those days.
If you like yelling into a dark hallway, “Hex Girlfriend” provides great inspiration. I think if Catherine Wheel ever got into the synths that they’d sound like this. I also like “Fallout.”
New Order fans will enjoy “Halogen (I Could Be a Shadow).” The other good track is “Suns Irrupt,” although really they’re all good. The last track is “Arcade Blues (Single).” I don’t know whether it’s the single, or if it means when you’re single you spend all your time depressed in arcades. If there’s one thing we know, it’s that we know one thing.
