Quickly having become an icon of the past Neutral Milk Hotel grew to fame in a recent resurgence of popularity. Releasing only two albums back in the mid 90’s the band fell away rather quickly due to the stress of touring. Developing a cult following, the bands popularity returned almost 15 years later to make them one of the most appreciated “underground” acts that ever existed. Here today is my favorite song off of the second album. The writing from an Aeroplane Over the Sea is some of the best I think I’ve ever heard and touches on some great literary themes involving Anne Frank and frontman Jeff Mangum’s own personal experience.
So please, Sit back, Relax, And Listen Well.
