What a Wonderful World

Holy Shit!!! It's almost impossible for me to control my excitement. Jeff Mangum is back and talking about creating new music and even touring. For those who don't know, Jeff Mangum is the songwriter for the band Neutral Milk Hotel, who created one of the greatest CDs of all time called "In the Aeroplane Over the Sea". Trust me when I say no one had created a CD like that before (or really after though early Bright Eyes owed a huge debt to Jeff). But there really seems to be something in these songs that transcends the music and makes it more meaningful than the music itself.

In the 10 years since Aeroplane was released, Jeff has not released any new music. It was unclear whether he decided to stop making music, but people like me always held out hope. And while there are no concrete plans as of yet, just the idea that Jeff is playing music and talking about recording and touring is fantastic news. I highly highly highly recommend buying "In the Aeroplane Over the Sea". As a disclaimer, this CD is not for everyone - people seem to either love it or hate it. But those people who love it come to cherish it and have a hard time knowing what they ever did before they knew about this CD.

I've got a huge grin on my face. As Ice Cube said - I didn't even have to use my AK, today was a good day.

UPDATE: I forget to give props to Pitchfork for the news. Sorry - where are my manners?

Thanks. I'm glad you took the time to do the name verification to pitch your products. I wish I could waste away the days like that.
