Neon Indian Introduces the PAL198X
- Words: Patric Fallon
We always had a sneaking suspicion that Alan Palomo (a.k.a. Neon Indian) had a decent sense of humor (you'd kind of have to with song titles like "Terminally Chill"), but who knew that he could be downright funny? And informative, too! This piece of colorfully warped VHS footage is a sort of infomercial for a miniature analog synth the Texan producer helped create with Bleep Labs, the PAL198X. Palomo and friends exhibit the many ways to use and apply the noisy little device, with a bit of kitsch and all-around weirdness thrown in for good measure. If we caught this on the tube at 3 a.m. on a Wednesday, we just might buy two.
