Is Alan Palomo of Neon Indian chillwaves least hermetic knob-twiddler? In March, this Texas-bred synthmeister released a collaborative EP with the Flaming Lips, and later this month, hes scheduled to tour college campuses with Kreayshawn, the Gucci Gucci rapper from the Internet. Before that trip begins, Palomo and his pals hit New York tonight to wrap their North American headlining tour in support of Era Extraña, Neon Indians sophomore full-length. The albums an open bid for the kind of electro-pop breakthrough attained in recent years by MGMT; one sweet licensing deal could be all he needs.
