Listen: Neon Indian - Era Extrana Mix Tape

To accompany the deluxe vinyl release of the Neon Indian's huge 2011 album Era Extrana, an untitled mix tape has been included with a range of material, some of which surely inspired main-man Alan Palomo. This 48-minute mix includes some Toro Y Moi remixes of Neon Indian's previous work as well as some fairly obscure (to me at least) 80s French and Spanish new-wave and synthpop bands in Liaisons Dangereuses and Aviador Dro. 

 Although a lot of this mix is pretty unknown to me other than Toro Y Moi and Com Truise (who's amazing), it's a really worthwhile listen especially in terms of seeing what influences Neon Indian, which is clearly audible throughout.
(From some Googling...) 
The full tracklist is as follows:

1. Liaisons Dangereuses – Etre Assis Ou Danset
2. Bill Nelson – Do you dream in Colour
3. Yellow Magic Orchestra – Focus
4. Neon Indian – Deadbeat Summer (Toro Y Moi remix)
5. Aviador Dro – Amor Industrial
6. - (help?)
7. David Sylvian & Ryuichi Sakamoto – Bamboo Houses
8. Cocteau Twins – Pearly Dewdrops’ Drops
9. DAF – Liebe Auf Den Ersten Blick
10. Flesh – A split Second
11. Com Truise – Hyperlips
12. Lil B – I seen that Light
