30. Neon Indian - Should Have Taken Acid With You (2009)

The old 80's synth sounds that the band Neon Indian uses in their music may sound a little cheesy and may take quite a bit of getting used to, but once the sound sunk in for me I didn't want it to stop. At times sounding a little Daft Punk-ish, Neon Indian are part of a 2009 musical trend called glo-fi that features bands such as Washed Out and Ducktails which emphasizes sunny, 80's influenced electronic music. Although I'm usually one for darker sounds, this stuff is nice to listen to this time of year occasionally as it is almost like a brief glimpse of summer when the weather outside is anything but.
