Neutral Milk Hotel is a band formed by Jeff Magnum and is part of the Elephant 6 Recording Company. This is one of my favorite albums because of it’s folksy/indie greatness with some poetic lyrical content. The story of the album is based on recurring dreams he had about Jewish families during WW2 and Anne Frank. Jeff show’s his talent in “Oh Comely” by playing the entire 8 minutes in one take which received an applause and an almost inaudible “OH SHIT” on the track (TURN UP YOUR SPEAKERS MAX TO HEAR IT). Jeff Magnum’s guitar work is splendid.
If you are interested in the mastermind behind this band, Jeff Magnum, look into other Elephant 6 Recording Company bands. The Apples in Stereo will be posted shortly, another great band.
