Neutral Milk Hotel Box Set Details

Well, here’s something awesome that we weren’t expecting: Neutral Milk Hotel frontman Jeff Mangum, who is only now releasing from years of reclusion, has a new website, and he’s getting ready to drop a huge box set of everything Neutral Milk Hotel ever released, and then some. The vinyl-only box set, which he’s releasing 11/22, includes the albums In The Aeroplane Over The Sea and On Avery Island, the EP Everything Is, and the unreleased-songs EP Ferris Wheel On Fire. You’ll also get some 7″ singles: One featuring unreleased versions of “You’ve Passed” and “Where You’ll Find Me Now,” one picture disc with “Holland, 1945,” and one with unreleased and live versions of “Little Birds.” There’s also two posters. That’s a whole lot of Neutral Milk Hotel (15 unreleased tracks!), and we’ve got the tracklist below, a stream of the unreleased song “Oh Sister,” a live video of the unreleased song “Ferris Wheel on Fire,” and some other NMH news.

So about those 15 unreleased tracks?

Mangum will also sell them on Bandcamp starting 11/22, using a pay-what-you-want model. “Oh Sister” and “Ferris Wheel On Fire,” are streaming at his site, or at least they will be once it stops crashing from all the traffic. And Mangum is also selling original drawings for $15 a pop. That’s not even enough for two Chipotle burritos. Do it!
