As I was listening to the new Neon Indian record, VEGA INTL Night School, hearing track after track of sublime electronic dance music, I had the thought that this was the dance pop record every other dance pop oriented band was trying to make in 2015- in other words, the best one I've heard this year. Neon Indian is Mexican-born Alan Palomo's band. He moved to San Antonio, Texas as a child. Palomo attended college in Denton, Texas, and Denton remains his home base. He had already been writing and performing music in high school, under the name VEGA.
