Neon Indian 'Slumlord Rising' (short film)

Neon Indian 'Slumlord Rising' (short film)
Alan Palomo's new Neon Indian LP VEGA INTL. Night School crossed his original chillwave approach with the gloss of '80s-era R&B. The latter seems to have been an inspiration to the new short film Slumlord Rising, a retro-leaning look on Los Angeles night life with a bit of a chaotic edge.

As you'll see below, the video takes place in and out of a popular night club, with various joggers, glammy ladies and briefcase-toting scumbags looking to make their way in for a dance or two. The night takes a turn for the worse, though, when a gang of guys with guns stop by to do more than the electric shuffle.

From there, you're treated to deception, shady deals, and a midnight motorcycle ride. The soundrack combines VEGA INTL. Night School's "Slumlord" and "Slumlord's Re-Release".

You can peep all the grisly details of the video, co-directed by Palomo and Tim Nackashi.
