Yesterday, the folks at The Fader posted the above clip to Youtube, showing the young gents and newly added lady in Neon Indian performing at the bar at Barcadia for a new video feature the magazine is calling "At The Bar With Southern Comfort." Consider this performance a far cry from the band's usual live show--and anything the band's released to date, too. Instead, this showcases the band performing an old Mexican folk tune, "Mi Viejo," and doing so acoustically, go figure. Not a hundred percent sure how I feel about it yet, to be honest--although it does show a side to Alan Palomo that few have seen.
Also, for what it's worth, I agree with Alan's qip at the end of the clip: Barcadia's Street Fighter II arcade game is completely not fair.
