In Space, No Chimps Can Hear Neon Indian Scream...



Speaking of CMJ '09 (kinda), Neon Indian's up at the music marathon this weekend, set for a performance tomorrow night. And a hotly anticipated one at that--or so say the folks over at Spin, who've named Palomo and Pals among its 25 must-hear artists at the weekend-long festivities.

And, sure, that's a good enough excuse as any for us to post the above, brilliant Heidi Petty-created video, which sets old NASA footage of Ham the Astrochimp to Neon Indian's "Laughing Gas." (Hat tip.)
