Neutral Milk Windfall: Jeff Mangum to Release Box Set, Launches New Website


In a quite unexpected turn of events, the heretofore super elusive Neutral Milk Hotel frontman Jeff Mangum has unveiled a brand new and super fancy website, something fans have been clamoring for for years while making do with this one. Even better, via said website, he has announced plans to release a vinyl-only box set which will include everything the band has ever recorded, including — hold yourselves back, now — fifteen previously unreleased tracks. He’s also selling one of a kind drawings (though at this moment they are predictably sold out) and streaming the unreleased “Oh Sister” / “Ferris Wheel on Fire” here. The box of joy will be available November 22, and all the children of the indie rock generation hold their breath in anticipation. [via Pitchfork]
