In the Aeroplane Over the Sea [180 Gram Vinyl]

Key members of the distinctly original collective the Elephant 6 Recording Company, Neutral Milk Hotel are one of the most riotously exhilarating rock bands of the '90s. They combine the furious fun of punk rock, the lyrical elegance of '60s folk, and the musical experimentation of the Beach Boys and the Beatles in songs with names like "Two-Head Boy" and " King of Carrot Flowers." IN THE AEROPLANE OVER THE SEA is largely the brainchild of singer-guitarist Jeff Mangum, a glorious shouter blessed with a powerful yowl that could wake the dead. When he sings of "a little boy in Spain playing pianos filled with flames" or "we know who our enemies are!" its as exciting as hearing the Beatles sing "I Want to Hold Your Hand." And when his band comes in behind him with feedback, singing saw, crazed drum rolls, saxophones, and trombone, it's like a tidal wave pouring out of your speakers. Ebbing and flowing like a great rock opera, AEROPLANE was the indie-rock record of the year in 1998, and its influence is just beginning to be felt.
