Neutral Milk Hotel were part of the esteemed Athens, Georgia psychedelic Elephant 6 collective, which was also home to Olivia Tremor Control & Apples In Stereo. Shunning the mainstream and performing rarely to the dismay of fans meant that 'Aeroplane…' never received its due exposure. Acknowledged by indie cognoscenti as a lost classic, its scope & influence can be traced from the macabre tones of the Arcade Fire ("'In the Aeroplane Over the Sea' is one of the most completely inspiring rock records I've ever heard… everytime I finish listening to it I feel like I've lived through something I'll never quite understand, something really big.' Ben Reed Parry of the Arcade Fire), to the exploratory journeys of Anticon/Mush crew - "In The Aeroplane Over The Sea is absolutely the most inspiring album, lyrically, that I have ever heard Jeff Mangum's lyrics are the closest anyone has ever come to putting my dreams into music. I don't know what else to say, other than this is the one album I would take on a deserted island if I had only one choice" - Boom Bip
