Neon Indian: "Deadbeat Summer" (MP3)

"Deadbeat Summer" is drowsy lo-fi pop done very right. Frustratingly pictureless mystery duo Neon Indian are preparing to release an EP titled Psychic Chasms, and this wasted piece of washed out groove is likely to appear on it. In two or three months, when you're sitting around trying to figure out why you're sitting around when it's so gosh darn beautiful outside, put this on and the reason will suddenly become clear.

I am a huge italo disco fan and was upset to find out that Neon Indian ripped off of one of the genres most beloved song. I asked them about it on their myspace page but they erased my comments and blocked me. Obviously they are trying to pull a fast one. I wouldn't care if they credited the song or wrote back to me but they didn't have the decency to respond so I am going around spreading this information on blogs.

Listen for yourself and pass the information along if you feel inclined:

Other than that I really like their album, I just don't like people that steal.

Thanks!

Yeah, good ear for catching that, but I wouldn't call it a rip off; it's just obvious that Alan Palomo is a fan of the Pineapples track. It's an influence in the same way that Frankie Knuckles influenced Animal Collective: http://www.prefixmag.com/media/animal-collective/your-love-my-girls-animal-collective-vs-frankie-kn/24589/

Quite a tune. I can't put my finger on it, but I'm so drawn to this unconventional tempo

@Matthew Tait .
Why are posting that everywhere, i already read the same thing posted by you on lastfm, theyre not stealling nothing, theres a million songs that sound similar to other ones and that doesn't mean theyre stealling.

it's not an influence thing, it's a rip-off thing

Gotta chime in and say it sounds like you're confusing sampling with "ripping off". NI sampled the intro to Izzat Love, just a few bars, and made it into a completely different song. This is common practice and no biggie. If he had stolen some of the actual melodies, then that would be a different story.
