Neon Indian Teases New Single, Mini-Synth Available With Deluxe Album Purchases
Today, Palomo's announced a new trick up his sleeve: a custom synthesizer. Along with the standard album version of his band's upcoming Era Extraña release, Palomo, through his new Static Tongues imprint label, will be selling a $49.99 deluxe package of the release, which will include a CD, the 12" vinyl of the same release, a T-shirt, an autographed poster and a custom synthesizer called the PAL 198X.
Created in tandem with the folks at Austin's Bleep Labs, the PAL 198X is essentially a version of the company's already for sale PicoPaso synth. Promises Palomo: "It does not make the same sound twice."
Check out Palomo's full comments on the synth after the jump, as well as a video of the way the PicoPaso works and a SoundCloud embed of the PAL 198X's capabilities.
Oh, and check out the latest single off of Era Extraña, "Polish Girl," via a stream on NPR's site. They call the song "full on electro-pop." As if Palomo knows anything else.
"We teamed up with our brethren homies in Austin, Bleep Labs, to proudly bring you the PAL 198X. It's a triple triangle-wave oscillator noisemaking device with interchangeable controls for maximal sonic contortion. You can attach knobs, light-reactive photocells, and a variety of other devices for semi-modular capabilities. It can interact with a variety of objects around your house whether electronic in nature or not. It can even interact with your pet. It does not make the same sound twice. Basically, I want you to hack this fucking thing."
