Editors’ Notes Neutral Milk Hotel is in large part a creation of Jeff Mangum's fractured imagination, but the Georgia band's kitchen-sink symphonies were hatched by blending ‘60s pop with the lo-fi indie rock of the ‘90s. In this playlist, Mangum's raw emotion and sweetness is echoed in Brian Wilson, and his eccentricities are linked to Robert Wyatt. Trace the quirky traditions that resulted in something utterly unique.
