Published Apr 01, 2013It's been more than a year and a half since synth devotee Neon Indian released his excellent sophomore album, Era Extraña, and the songwriter also known as Alan Palomo will revisit that collection this month with a remix EP. ERRATA ANEX is out April 9 through Mom + Pop Music.
The title, ERRATA ANEX, is an anagram of Era Extraña. A press release notes that "the mis-spelling of annex is intentional (it means 'complied errors')." The EP includes remixes from Twin Shadow, Actress, Optimo, Boyd Rice and Patten. Check out the tracklist below, and scroll past that to hear a couple of tracks from the EP, including Twin Shadow's version of "Hex Girlfriend."
Palomo said in a statement, "These remixes are a small collection found along the way of my year on the road while we were touring Era Extraña. The artists were chosen by whatever most consistently blared out of my headphones that fall and what I was most giddy to hear an amalgamation of from the songs I was playing live, and the artists I'd listen to later that night. If imitation is the highest form of flattery, then total re-imagination from song scraps must be something far more warm, mutant, and mutual. I hope you enjoy them."
