Is Noise Pop really over? It doesn’t seem like it when you consider the wealth of incredible underground music coming our way this week.
The story is internet-famous by now: Neon Indian’s Alan Palomo crashed out on his NYC stoop in a tequila haze and woke to find his laptop—loaded up with almost two years worth of recordings for the follow-up to his critically beloved album, Era Extraña—gone, baby, gone.
