Neon Indian announces fall tour, shows with Phoenix; it’s as if your 2009 summer rose from the grave all zombie-like

Neon Indian announces fall tour, shows with Phoenix; it's as if your 2009 summer rose from the grave all zombie-like

Back in the sweet summer of 2009, it was like everybody had a new carefree pop obsession every day. If you weren’t surfing the chillwaves with Neon Indian’s “Deadbeat Summer,” you were living some sort of super-smooth John Hughes fantasy with Phoenix’s “1901.” But those days are over, over I say! Being way into Neon Indian and Phoenix is so 2009; being into Ariel Pink is so 2010. If you want to return to the glory days of last year, there is only one real plan: go see Neon Indian open for Phoenix on a handful of tourdates this September. For added 2009 flavor, I recommend listening to “My Girls” on a loop during the drive to the show.

If you can’t make those five dates in which Neon Indian and Phoenix join forces, you may still be able to get the Neon Indian part of the bargain. Alan Palomo and crew will be going on tour for a few weeks in the fall, giving you plenty of opportunities to relive “The Year Chillwave Broke.” During some of those dates, they’ll be joined by either Chromeo or Dam-Funk, two fine purveyors of 80s-inflected synth funk.
