Neutral Milk Hotel - (1996) On Avery Island Indie rock, fuzz rock, lo-fi, psychedelic folk
My favorite album by Neutral Milk Hotel. Assuming you've heard 'In the Aeroplane over the Sea' before, 'On Avery Island' is a lot happier and fuzzier. If you liked 'Holland, 1945' and 'Ghost', you'll love this album.
I'm feeling nauseous and the sharpness of Alva Noto is the only thing I can really listen to right now without feeling like I'm about to vomit. It's a lot like 'Univrs', but much more structured. Stiff even. Like a scalpel to the brain. If caffeine produced a sound, this would be it. Features a six minute noise session at the end with tracks cut up into ~10 second clips. I'm not a noise kind of guy, but I've grown to like it.
