Label: Fader Label
There's little wonder about Texan Alon Palomo's moniker on his debut, a home-produced blast of fluorescent effervescence and day-glo tone color. He wields samples like the Avalanches and drops fuzzy, gritty funk in a Stones Throw vein on tracks that are nominally lo-fi but have plenty of punch behind their yacht-rock choruses. What do you call this kind of psychedelic, style-scavenging indie pop? Who knows, but lined up with CFCF, Wavves and even Animal Collective, it sounds very 2009.
