SRSLY. It’s the start of the footie season, I’m not too sure I can be arsed breaking off for the start of the music season too. Can you? Ok, we’ll make a deal. I will, if you do. Here’s two passes to this year’s interweb HYPE thingy. Some call it chillwave. I call it spazznogcobnobwaaah. Reckon that’ll fit on the genre T-shirt?
Right. Not wastin no time on this one. We all have to chill. And paint pictures of cats on Paint. Wanna do what Bethany Cosentino would do.
But first, you want to go see Neon Indian – that there band that did a bit of a Clap Your Hands Say Yeah on the interweb, but were better – right?
To win add Getintothis on Twitter and tell us what Apache indian Geronimo‘s name stood for. There’s a whopping clue here.
Winners announced Sunday on Twitter. I will add and DM you.
The gig comes in association with Getintothis‘ good friends at Harvest Sun here’s their jibber jabber:
‘Neon Indian are an elusive new project from composer Alan Palomo. Neon Indian delivers equal parts synthetic nostalgia, Dreampop lullabies, and grinding guitar noise to create something eerier than the sum of its parts. Forged after a hazy winter gathering in Texas, this initial batch of tracks were the result of field recordings, record samples, a collection of bizarre synth sounds. Soliciting the visual acrobatics of video artist Alicia Scardetta, this project is setting out to be a multimedia maelstrom. Orbiting around the themes of drug induced heartbreak, weary afternoons, and lost chances, this music provides a lush soundtrack to the deadbeat exploits of teenage ennui.
Neon Indian’s bedroom ballads have already forged the upcoming Psychic Chasms, set for UK release this coming September. They’ve been compared to New Order, Future Bible Heroes, and most recently said to sound like a saw-wave cutting a Doobie Brother‘s song in half. Expect much racket to be had from this fresh faced crew.’
Support comes from Run Toto Run; a pop band who I’m not going to spew superlatives on only for you to grab a beer elsewhere and turn up lazyarse late and care not a jot. So let’s just say I said they’re good, get involved early, enjoy – as it will be worth it. I’m not lying.
