About Neutral Milk Hotel

Neutral Milk Hotel is an indie rock band comprised of singer and guitarist Jeff Magnum, Scott Spillane, Jeremy Barnes, and Julian Koster. The band originally formed in the late 1980s, and their first release was their 1994 EP Everything Is, which was just a short collection of songs. They made their official live debut as a band on April 28, 1996 at Brownie's in New York, and then set out on a small tour.

Neutral Milk Hotel first began as a recording project for singer Jeff Magnum. He recorded various demo cassettes, including Invent Yourself a Shortcake, Beauty, and Hype City Soundtrack. His later demo Synthetic Flying Machinewas eventually featured on In the Aeroplane Over the Sea as the track "The King of Carrot Flowers Pt. 3." During the time Magnum was working on these demos, he couch-surfed and was a bit of a drifter, not maintaining a stable job or living situation.Neutral Milk Hotel's first full-length album was On Avery Island, and marks the time when their lineup was solidified.

With the release of their 1998 album In the Aeroplane Over the Sea, Neutral Milk Hotel went on to receive critical acclaim, although the album was not initially commercially successful.. The album was said to have been inspired by the story of Holocaust victim Anne Frank. During performances, Magnum explained that some of the songs were based on vivid dreams he had about a Jewish family during World War II. The album has since sold over 300,000 copies, and was the sixth best-selling vinyl album in 2008. Unfortunately, the band disbanded in 1999 when lead singer Jeff Magnum had a nervous breakdown due to the pressure of touring and dealing with the press. However, in 2013, the band announced a reunion tour and they will continue playing throughout 2014.

During the band's hiatus, the various band members remained active with side projects, and even lead singer Jeff Magnun was featured on the track "I Have Been Floated" for The Olivia Tremor Control's album. Magnun also made appearances with Elf Power and The Instruments, and the other members released new material during the brand's departure from the music scene. Julian Koster began work on his experimental music and performance art project The Music Tapes, while Scott Spillane played with The Gerbils.

Although their career has been relatively short, this obscure lo-fi band has managed to influence a number of groups, including the likes of Arcade Fire, Bon Iver, Beirut, Franz Ferdinand, and the Decemberists. Their music has also been covered by many artists, including Brand New, The Mountain Goats, Andrew Jackson Jihad, The Dresden Dolls, Kevin Devine, and The Flowers of Hell.

Neutral Milk Hotel's Breakthrough Album

Neutral Milk Hotel's 1998 album In the Aeroplane Over the Sea garnered nearly universal critical acclaim throughout the indie music world. It was later listed in the January 2011 edition of Q magazine as one of the top 250 albums of the past 25 years. The band toured small clubs for nearly an entire year to support the album, including some European performances. The legendary album was the favorite of critics that year, ending up on many "top-10" and "best-of" lists.
