Alan Palomo aka Neon Indian joins AbNon host Ben Aqua to discuss the evolution of his unique music and aesthetic — from his humble beginnings singing Frank Sinatra duets with his dad to being transformed by Radiohead as a teenager to covering “Vamos a La Playa” in front of massive festival crowds. We also coin the term “emotional italo disco” and host a sensual, romantic listening party featuring some of our favorite emotional italo tunes just 4 u. It’s soggy with existential music nerd commentary and plenty of dad jokes.

"Life is Meaningless," said The Oblong Boys, Austin's weirdest and most zolo band ever. In this episode, I talked to Oblong A, Mr. E, Pat A. Physics, and Lockemup about how The Oblong Boys were spawned, the concepts behind their unique brand of music and performance, and their late night guerrilla escapades. Think DEVO meets the Residents meets Frank Zappa in a hypercolor Yellow Magic Orchestra mega blender full of Sparks. Here's to The Oblong Boys!
