Neutral Milk Hotel – In the Aeroplane Over the Sea (LP)

21.00  inc. VAT

The reissue of Neutral Milk Hotel’s cult classic offers another opportunity to measure its reach and influence. Jeff Mangum’s masterpiece mixes hushed folk, explosive brass, and unforgettable vocals that touch on pain, loss, memory, and hope.
Obsessed as it is with the textures of the flesh and the physical self as an emotional antenna, listening to Aeroplane sometimes seems to involve more than just your ears.
In the Aeroplane Over the Sea is the second album by the American rock band Neutral Milk Hotel, released on February 10, 1998 by Merge Records. The music is predominantly indie rock and psychedelic folk, and is characterized by an intentionally low quality sound. Traditional instruments like the guitar and drums are paired with less conventional instruments such as a singing saw, zanzithophone, and uilleann pipes. The album’s tempo sometimes abruptly shifts from song to song, while heavy layers of distortion permeate the music. The lyrics are surrealistic and opaque, with themes ranging from nostalgia to love.
