"Sleep Paralysist!" Try to say that a bunch of times fast. Based on his previous output and the title of this song, you'd think that Alan Palomo bka Neon Indian was about to drop another warped, humid single on us. But maybe dude figured he'd clean things up a bit because this wasn't actually coming out on cassette, or maybe the new, clearer sound came as a result of working with Grizzly Bear's Chris Taylor for this song on Green Label Sound. Whatever the case, this is somewhat uncharted territory for Palomo. The drugginess of his original work is gone, instead replaced with crystal clear space age funk.
