Coinciding with his release of the acclaimed new album ‘VEGA INTL. Night School’, Neon Indian has shared an epic short film ‘Slumlord Rising’. Opening with a stunning continuous four minute tracking shot,the film delves into the seedy, and sometimes blood-soaked, Los Angeles nightlife world. Co-directed by Palomo and Tim Nackashi, the film is presented as part of a special collaboration with Yours Truly and Wetransfer, arriving in conjunction with a complete oral history of ‘VEGA INTL. Night School’, featuring the voices of 15 of the album’s contributors.
The new video arrives alongside a relaunch of Neon Indian’s hotline number, which was originally introduced in August to give fans a taste of the new material. Fans who call +1-512-643-VEGA will hear a special greeting from the man himself, and be sent a preview gif of the video.

Adoring dark clothing, you’d be fooled into thinking The Jezabels are an impure and gloomy band. They are not.
The Australian fourpiece may have taken more of an electronic approach with their second album, ‘The Brink’, but they still class themselves as ‘intensindie’.
‘Look of the Love’ is a heartfelt and emotional track, taken from the ‘Uptown Girl”s perspective. The track was recorded in London with producer Dan Grech-Marguerat.
Indietronica watched them perform last night and they were far from the cries of gothic urbania. With bright dressing room styled lights and a pink and blue lazered backdrop, it was as if the band had emerged straight from the boot of from Ryan Gosling’s car in Drive and landed on stage.
