Neon Indian debuts “Slumlord Rising” short

Neon Indian debuts "Slumlord Rising" short film. The track comes from Neon Indians latest release VEGA INTL Night School,

Coinciding with last weeks’s release of the his new album VEGA INTL Night School, Neon Indian (aka Alan Palomo) has shared an epic short film “Slumlord Rising.” Opening with a 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 14 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 Alan and be sent a preview gif of the video.
