Neon Indian is the most successful moniker of Mexican American performer Alan Palomo. His debut record Psychic Chasms came out in 2010 and was a critical success that firmly established him in the indie music world.
Neon Indian was my first job in music. But Alan and I go way back, like way back. We met at a speech and debate tournament in Dallas, TX when I was a sophomore in highschool. In college we started working together and the band took off. In this episode we talk about our old days together, his journey in the music industry, and where he thinks Neon Indian is headed.
