Hop in the De Lorean and Ride With Me…


The frontman behind the Welsh act Super Furry Animals and the not scared to experiment producer Boom Bip have decided to join forces to bring back the 80’s in a futuristic way. These two gentlemen are going under the moniker known as Neon Neon. For some, this is probably one of those dream collaborations, right? Gruff Rhys, who is a part of the rock, meets psychedelic electronic dabblers SFA, while Byron Hollon puts out songs with more of a hip-hop edge, but also recently generated more of a beat oriented dance EP that was entitled Sacchrilege. With rather diverse leanings from both artists, it comes as no surprise that their forthcoming album, Stainless Style dabbles with many different genres and focuses heavily on tight production.

Besides the potential that these two hold, this whole album is themed around the life of John De Lorean. No joke. And on top of all that, the guest list reads out like a V.I.P list – MC Spank Rock, Fatlip, Har Mar Superstar, etc. Give “I Told Her on Alderaan” a listen and then quickly jot this down on your upcoming best of ’08 list. Do not sleep.

You can hear three more tracks on their MySpace.

    Damn fine post. You had me here, “Gruff Rhys, who is a part of the rock, meets psychedelic electronic dabblers SFA.” While SFA is just barely my second favorite Welsh band behind Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci, I do love them. I saw them in Athens, complete with super furry suits. F-ing awesome. Very good song too.

    A concept album about John De Lorean? Any they say music has become too formulaic. One reason I had to change from the earlier theme today–it didn’t say include who wrote the post. Based on that picture, I thought Jason was over his writer’s block.

    I couldn’t possibly give this a bad review…ever. Back to the Future references aside, I do like the song you up’ed for d/l and the ones streaming at Myspace. I’m down with acts that expansively dabble with all sorts of creativity.

    Some day I’ll have my picture taken next to a De Lorean.
