The self described “fuzz-folk” project, Neutral Milk Hotel were an American indie rock band formed in Louisiana by singer, guitarist and songwriter Jeff Mangum in the late 1980s. The band is noted for its experimental sound, abstract lyrics and eclectic instrumentation. The first release was the 1994 EP Everything Is, a short collection of tracks featuring Mangum. On the band’s full length debut album On Avery Island, which followed shortly thereafter, Mangum was joined by childhood friend and Apples in Stereo frontman Robert Schneider. Upon the album’s release, the full band was formed and extensive touring began. Neutral Milk Hotel released In the Aeroplane Over the Sea in 1998, which became their best known and most critically acclaimed album. Although the album did not meet commercial success at the time of release, it has gone on to sell over 300,000 copies and received critical acclaim from several publications, including Pitchfork Media, Magnet Magazine, AllMusic and The Pazz & Jop poll. Despite growing popularity, the group disbanded in 1999. Neutral Milk Hotel is a part of the Elephant 6 Recording Company, the band was one of Elephant 6’s three first projects, alongside The Apples in Stereo and The Olivia Tremor Control.
