NMH Boxset

Jeff Mangum has a website! And that website reports that Neutral Milk Hotel is releasing a box set which includes their entire discography with assorted rarities and 15 unrleased tracks (eight of which are "acoustic recordings)! According to the site the set:

Includes two gatefold 12" records (In the Aeroplane Over the Sea and On Avery Island), two 10" records (Everything Is EP with bonus tracks and Ferris Wheel on Fire EP featuring eight previously unreleased acoustic recordings), two 7" records (Little Birds and You've Passed/Where You'll Find Me Now), one 7" picture disc with fold-out poster (Holland 1945/Engine), and two 24"x24" posters.
The box set will be released on November 22 and you can pre-order it now. All 15 of the unreleased tracks will also be available as pay-what-you-wish downloads on bandcamp once the box is released (11/22). Stream two of the tracks, "Oh Sister" and "Wheel on Fire" here and look at the full tracklisting here.

The website also includes a thirty-minute radio broadcast by Jeff that you can listen to HERE.

The site also mentions that a portion of the proceeds made at Jeff's shows at 1 dollar from each box set will be donated to Children of the Blue Sky, a charity founded to help abandoned Mongolian children. More information here.

Jeff Mangum = Pavement 2010

Why can't Neutral Milk Hotel reunite as well? Anyone know?

Becuase it's pretty much all Jeff Mangum. Most of the musicians from the old touring band are actually playing at both upcoming ATP's.

I don't want Neutral Milk Hotel reuniting unless there is new material. All of this hoopla is gonna get annoying.

this band is fucking awful and white people need better ways to spend their money. fuck the idea of getting all hot and bothered because some grad school sub syd barrett mongoloid managed to step out of his apartment for a bunch of terrible shows that "graphic design kids" will be furiously shooting on their iPads and flipcams so they can brag to thier TermBo/BCO/Hipinion buddies. eat shit and die.

I thought this box set was the bargain of the fucking Century at $8 according to the pre-order page. But it's actually $108. Oops. I wonder if they have to honor that? LAWL.
