Album Review: Neon Indian – VEGA INTL. Night School

Back with another review bitches! Surviving the implosion of chillwave, Neon Indian delivers a synth filled, but this time also funky record. Here are my thoughts on “VEGA INTL. Night School”:

It’s been 4 years since the release of the former Neon Indian project and it’s safe to say that multi-instrumentalist Alan Palomo has gone a different direction with this new album. It’s funkier, more shiny and has a certain indie dance feel to it. Overall I feel that he delivers a pretty cool album, but I just don’t think we get on the same wave length in the end.

There are parts of this record which I think are awesome, light and fun such as “Annie”, “Street Level” and “The Glitzy Hive”. Some of the gloomier parts are pretty cool as well, (“Slumlords Re-lease” and “Techno Clique”) but for the most part a lot of the content is forgetful and does not really stick at all. Like a lot of other electronic albums, this one lacks dynamism and gets boring in it’s full length.

Bottom line is, apart from a few of tracks, I unfortunately didnt really feel this project. That’s life I guess.

Fav track: Street Level

Score: 6/10
