CCP Ep. #177: VEGA INTL. Night School by Neon Indian

Today we’re taking on a long-awaited “listener pick” from Doug Ferguson of the Music A to Z Podcast (one of the subjects of our 150th Episode Special‘s “music podcast” overview). Thanks to Doug, we’ll be diving into the album VEGA INTL. Night School by Neon Indian, a project of indie-electronic composer Alan Palomo. Neon Indian was also discussed in Music A to Z’s episode, “N Is For Neon Indian”, so give that a listen as well! Finally, we wrap up with a quick predictive experiment: The “thirty-year rule”… 2040s style! What elements of today’s music could potentially make their way into cultural rotation for a thirty-year resurgence? Hopes? Fears? Let’s hear ’em in the comments! And don’t forget to give Music A to Z a follow!

    – 27:49: Meant to say “accents on the second semiquaver of the measure”

  2. So, after some careful consideration I’ve decided that I’d like to see you review the album FFS by FFS. FFS is collaborative effort between the bands Franz Ferdinand and Sparks. I know you’re at least a little familiar with Franz Ferdinand, because “Take Me Out” was a big hit in the 2000s, but I’m not too sure on your familiarity with Sparks. They are a group that have been around since the 70s, and have tackled many genres in their career, but not a lot of people might be aware of them. But while they never had a lot mainstream success, they have enjoyed a cult following and have been cited as an influence on a lot of artists. I’ll be curious as to your take on the album.
