Oh, Jeff Mangum, never change.

/Really psyched about this, NMH produced two of the best albums of all time.

If I were to sit down and write a giant list of "favorite bands/artists", it would be awhile before I eventually came to Neutral Milk Hotel. I really don't like Mangum's voice, his lyrics can get weird and meandering, their instrumentation is generally real simple and meh...

...yet,  In The Aeroplane Over The Sea is absolutely one of the most powerful, harrowing albums I have ever listened to. Full stop. When Mangum strings a coherent stanza or two together, it hits harder than anything else I've ever heard. So much so, I made sure to remove any songs from that album on my work playlist, because the raw emotion it conveys is not something I can simply listen to in the background while f*cking with spreadsheets and other work-related documents.

Not judging, they may be wonderful.  Just never heard of them.


Hit up YouTube for "neutral milk hotel in the aeroplane over the sea full album". It'll either be one of the loveliest, most transcendent (and I don't use that word lightly) albums you've ever heard, or weirdo nonsense, depending on how you feel about Anne Frank, singing saws, semen-stained mountaintops, two-headed boys...the usual stuff.

I'm more interested in the new Boards of Canada album and Loop's reunion. NHM is fine, but I was enjoying the relative lull of not having hear about ITAOTS every 5 minutes.


moothemagiccow: Also what kind of smug cocksucker pays attention to the crowd's fashion choices at shows?


I like looking at band shirts at a show.

Mangum came to my shiatty little town last year. A handful of musicians joined him in certain songs. Not sure how this will be different.

Also what kind of smug cocksucker pays attention to the crowd's fashion choices at shows?

I just hope it means a new NMH album. I like " In the aeroplane..." as an album but I imagine a live show crowd would be suffocatingly smug

The thought of a Neutral Milk Hotel live show fills me with chilling visions of flannel and ironic beards and thin women with bird tattoos, and fat women with dyed black hair and jeans straining to hold their structural integrity.

I saw NMH opening for Superchunk in Lawrence, Kansas, back in about 1997 or 1998. I had never heard of them at the time, but they put on a pretty good show. I didn't realize I was watching the J.D. Salinger of indie-folk.

It could also start as the latter and then turn into the former.

/that's how it was with me
//nmh is great
