Neutral Milk Hotel - Holland 1945

Neutral Milk Hotel was an American indie rock band formed by singer, guitarist and songwriter Jeff Mangum in the early 1990s. The band was noted for its experimental sound, obscure lyrics, and eclectic instrumentation.[1]

The first release under the Neutral Milk Hotel moniker was the 1994 EP Everything Is, a short collection of tracks featuring Mangum. On the band's full-length debut album On Avery Island, which followed shortly thereafter, Mangum was joined by childhood friend and Apples in Stereo frontman Robert Schneider, who contributed production and instrumentation. Upon the album's release, the full band was formed and extensive touring began.

Neutral Milk Hotel released In the Aeroplane over the Sea in 1998, which became their most well-known and critically acclaimed album.[2] Although the album did not meet commercial success at the time of release, it has gone on to sell over 300,000 copies and is often ranked as one of the greatest albums of its time.[3] Despite growing popularity, the group disbanded in 1999 after Mangum became disenchanted with touring and the music press, later having a nervous breakdown.[4]

Neutral Milk Hotel is a part of The Elephant 6 Recording Company, based in Athens, Georgia. The band was one of Elephant 6's three first projects, alongside The Apples in Stereo and Olivia

Sleater-Kinney - One More Hour

Sleater Kinney with Lorrie at Tower Records New York City March 30th 1998

One of the most heartbreaking love songs ever recorded, "One More Hour" still rides on a punk energy inherent in the best indie rock.

Fugazi - Waiting Room

A funk-punk masterwork, Fugazi's "Waiting Room" is instant energy and an antidote to the complacency of the mainstream.

the Minutemen - This Ain't No Picnic

D. Boon and Mike Watt began playing music when they were teenagers in the mid-'70s, covering '70s hard rock standards. After they graduated from high school in 1976, they heard their first punk rock records, which marked a significant change in their musical development. Once Boon and Watt heard punk, they began writing their own songs and decided to form their first full-fledged rock & roll band. In 1980, the pair assembled a quartet called the Reactionaries, which featured drummer Frank Tonche and a second guitarist. Within a few months, their second guitarist left and the band changed their name to the Minutemen, since most of their songs were not much longer than a minute in duration. They recorded one single with Tonche before he was replaced by George Hurley.

Sonic Youth - Teenage Riot

Footage of Sonic Youth playing the song Teenage Riot during the European tour in 1991.

An epic anthem built from disjointed guitars, in some alternate universe this would be "Stairway to Heaven" for the coolest of the cool kids. In the real world, it still stands as one of the best indie songs of all time.

the Replacements - I Will Dare

The opening salvo from the Replacements' final independent album, "Let it Be," "I Will Dare" is a masterpiece of deceptively well-crafted slop that defines the spirit of indie rock; it's a mission statement in just over three minutes.

Mountain Stage Radio

Live Sets from the award-winning public radio program

Abigail Washburn On Mountain Stage - Listen to the banjo-strumming singer preview songs off her upcoming album, City of Refuge.

Le Loup - Planes Like Vultures

Le Loup is making some of the year's most original and mesmerizing music. The Washington, D.C., band uses plucked banjo, programmed beats and triumphant harmonies to produce complex and enthralling experimental pop. While the septet has a full, multifaceted sound, it's all built around a brilliantly crafted melodic core.


Rotary Downs - Sing Like the Sun

The New Orleans rock group Rotary Downs has released a stunning collection of psychedelic art-pop songs that play like brilliant mashups of Neutral Milk Hotel and Odelay-era Beck.


Trapper's Cabin - Running Down the Rain

Trapper's Cabin is the music of Joel Nettesheim, an art-folk singer-songwriter who lives and works in the north Georgia mountains. He says his latest CD, For My Friends, is "a celebration and appreciation of all the animals which populate and have populated the land."


Lucinda Blackbear - Kites

Brooklyn's Lucinda Black Bear is a new project led by Christian Gibbs. The band plays carefully written folk-rock with stunning arrangements. Capo My Heart and Other Bear Songs is a melancholy collection of songs that are expressive and moving. With Kristin Mueller on drums, Chad Hammer on cello and Clare Burson on violin, they paint lonely, deserted images with dark minor chords and complex melodies.


Telenovela - Paint it Beige

Telenovela is an indie-pop duo with a love of drum loops and The Carpenters. While Zachary Smola focuses on sampling and recording, Stephanie Clayton is a talented flautist with a soft-natured voice to match.


The Lightning Bug Situation - The Unhappy Robot Version of Me Vs. Coldplay

The Lightning Bug Situation is the nom de plume of San Francisco guitarist and songwriter Brian Miller. When not playing in his main band, The Speakers, Miller records atmospheric and intimate songs from home

Darius Rucker - Come Back Song

Among the new tracks is "Things I'd Never Do," written with Rogers and Clay Mills, which Rucker jokes "wasn't written about Tiger Woods." He and Rogers co-wrote "This" with former "American Idol" judge Kara DioGuardi, and Rucker says the traditional "Whiskey and You," penned with Rogers, is as close to Merle Haggard and George Jones as he gets. The lead single from the new album, "Come Back Song," is No. 9 on Hot Country Songs.

Josh Turner - All Over Me

Josh Turner's 2004 breakthrough hit, "Long Black Train," reminded country fans how rare and celebrated such thrilling, deep-baritone voices have been throughout the genre's history. And while Turner is a worthy heir to such barrel-chested baritones as Don Williams, Randy Travis and Trace Adkins, his fourth album, "Haywire," is a study in inconsistent use of his vocal gift. On the single "Why Don't We Just Dance," Turner avoids oversinging, instead letting his voice communicate through the song's message, resulting in one of the album's best tracks. Conversely, on the remake of Williams' 1987 hit ballad "I Wouldn't Be a Man," Turner overuses his low register, when a more restrained approach would've improved the take. Meanwhile, trite and sometimes awkward lyrics diminish some tracks that contain great instrumentals. But the album's finest moment is the choir-backed spiritual "The Answer," where Turner sings, "If you're lookin' for somebody you can talk to/When the heartache and the troubles overcome you/There's a man you can count on."-Wade Jessen.

Top 10 Great Unknown Artists of 2007 - Yeasayer

Artist: Yeasayer
Album: All Hour Cymbals
Song: 2080

Yeasayer is making some of the year's most interesting and infectious music. Describing its sound as "Middle Eastern-Psych-Pop-Snap-Gospel," the Brooklyn-based group creates huge waves of sound with a vibe that's both primitive and modern. Dark melodies are set against worldly funk rhythms.

Song: "2080"

Artist: Georgie James

Song: "More Songs About Oven Mitts"


Darius Rucker reaches milestone

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Darius Rucker has spent the last few years reinventing himself as a country star. He's had a platinum debut, No. 1 hits and his follow-up, "Charleston, SC 1966," debuted this week with high expectations.

Rucker hasn't forgotten what made him one of music's most bankable voices, though. You know, a certain laid-back rock band that turned out to be the melodic antidote to grunge and one of the biggest acts of the 1990s.

Hootie & the Blowfish celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, and Rucker says the band will record another album and tour at some point.

"This country thing is what I'm doing," Rucker said. "This is my career change. This is what I'm doing 'til I retire. But I know for a fact that — I don't want to put a time on it — but soon there's going to be another Hootie record, another Hootie tour because I love the guys and I think we will always be a band."

Stereo Love lyrics

George Michael to go to rehab

The 'Faith' hitmaker ' who left jail on Monday (11.10.10) after serving four weeks of an eight-week sentence for driving under the influence of drugs and possession of cannabis - wants to overcome his dependency on substances so he doesn't repeat the same problems and end up back in prison.

He said: ' want to beat my drug addiction and lead a normal life. I don't want to end up back in prison. It's a very horrible place to be.

'You're not considered a person when you're inside, you're just a number and that freaked me out.

' have done wrong and paid for this stupid crime and I want to get my life back on track.'

George's whereabouts have remained unknown since he decided to take a late night drive on the night of his release with his partner Kenny Goss.

Guns N' Roses play to school gig

Band members of Axl's new Guns N' Roses line-up have played a special surprise gig for lucky students in Oxford.

Guitarist Ron "Bumblefoot" Thai and drummer Frank Ferrer wowed the young fans at the Witchwood School Of Rock to offer advice to budding rock stars and played several numbers.

"I'm actually more nervous going and talking to the kids than I am playing in front of 20,000 people," Ferrer told the BBC, "because you don't see them. Here you're going to see every little kid's face."

The visit was organised by the centre's Mike Dove, who claimed: "They had coffee in my house this morning so it's a bit crazy. I've realised a bit of a boyhood dream."

Music Trivia Quizzes - AC-DC

The Australian rock band AC/DC was formed in 1973 by two brothers and guitarists, Malcolm and Angus Young. They became immensely popular with a lineup including Phil Rudd on drums, Mark Evans on bass and Bon Scott doing the lead vocals. After enjoying several hits and replacing Evans with Cliff Williams, tragedy struck when Bon Scott died unexpectedly in 1980. AC/DC brought in Brian Johnson to sing, replaced Rudd with Simon Wright, and kept right on releasing hits. Though their drummers continued to change - first to Chris Slade, then back to Rudd - AC/DC made a comeback in 1995. Test your knowledge of this enduringly popular group!
