With Neon Indian, St. Vincent and Bryan Street Tavern, Dallas Takes Over Today's Blogosphere
In other local-acts-on-the-web news, Neon Indian also grabbed a "Best New Track" nod from P4k today, as the site also debuted the former Denton act's new video for the song "Polish Girl." The video, which we have after the jump, shows a futuristic love story, complete with vintage computer equipment, while frontman Alan Palomo dances in some kind of space laboratory. Fitting, we think.
Pitchfork, just like us, seems to be quite impressed with the music from Neon Indian's album Era Extraña, which also earned its release today. In yesterday's anticipation, the site even ran a lengthy interview with Palomo, in which he talks about Mountain Dew and kitten videos, among other things.
Speaking of new music: Bryan Street Tavern got some good national publicity yesterday, as Japandroids chose their Dallas tour stop there last week to debut a new song called "Adrednaline Nighshift." A video of the performance has now ended up on Stereogum, and the Bryan Street Tavern sign can be seen in full throughout. Good for them, too: They've been booking some of the better shows coming through town lately.
