NMH just goes to show you, you give a wandering songwriter a horn section, and you get magical results.

i think jeff magnums voice is heavily heavily influenced my john darnielle of the mountain goats. not to say i don't like neutral milk hotel, i just think his voice is very similar.

The Mountain Goats are my second favorite band at the moment. NMH are number 5. coincidence? I think not.

Yeah, that was cool.

Everytime I hear "Holland, 1945" it takes me to a special place. That song's bridge is essentially magic in music form.

"gardenhead/leave Me Alone" Is Amazing. It Is One The First Album, But To Really Experience The Song Listen To The Live At Jittery Joe's Version.

These guys are awesome. My friend is a sorta/hippie and got me into them. I love them, they're such a great alternative to metal and punk.

what isn't though?


Aeroplane is a cd that every dedicated music fan discovers at some point in his crate digging, and it always stands out. Pretty much perfect album

Was just thinking of posting a new thread, but saw this one and the other four locked ones and decided against it. :x

Anyway, I forgot how unbelievably amazing In The Aeroplane Over The Sea is. Like, I think a lot of albums are good but overrated...but this one deserves every last bit of credit it gets.

I guess by my name, it's pretty obvious what my favorite NMH song is.

Also, I went and saw Manchester Orchestra, Kevin Devine & the Goddamn Band, and Brand New last night. During Kevin's set EVERYONE came onstage and played Holland, 1945. It was the most amazing thing I have ever seen.

I think it's safe to say that every indie kid likes these people. It's, like, an unwritten rule.

And yes, for the record, I do like them. They're actually one of the semi-few folksy bands that I dig.

I have previously heard good thigns about this band, but never listened to them until now and I must say that I quite enjoy what I've heard (on the myspace). I want to go out and pick up an album tommorrow, but I don't think I'll have the opportunity tomorrow - perhaps another day sometime soon I will though.

Which album do you recommend?

I suppose you could've gathered this by reading through the thread but it's obviously In an Aeroplane Over the Sea.

Jeff Mangum is probably the greatest songwriter ever, and I really mean that. I just can't see anyone who appreciates music disliking that album.

Edit:

Two-Headed Boy Pt. 2 is the best song off the album most definitely.
