[Watch] Check Out Neon Indian's Animated Short Film

It was recently reported that Alan Palomo, the frontman of Neon Indian, was commissioned by the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art to create an animated short film, and now you can watch the fruits of his labor. Entitled "Outer Osmo Ghost Mode", the film centers on how technology has impacted the relationships we have with other people.

Focusing on two avatars named Elda and Dell Banner, the film explores our relationships within the digital space and how social networking and technology have shaped the ways in which we interact. Palomo uses the music as an extension of the plot, evoking these complex transformations through sound. The result is music that has endured "eras of digital degradation and (coming) off distorted, distant, and otherwise anachronistic." Watch the full short film above.
