Neutral Milk Hotel is one of the most distinctive bands to have hit the indie rock scene. Rising to fame in the 1990s, this four member group was formed by Louisiana based singer/songwriter Jeff Mangum. Post the release of their debut album On Avery Island, the band began performing endlessly. Selling around 5000 copies, the album did a fairly good job landing them an opportunity to work with Scott Spillane, Jeremy Barnes and Julian Koster. In the Aeroplane Over the Sea, the 1998 release was a bigger and better production as it amassed rave reviews from Allmusic, Magnet Magazine, Pitchfork Media and the Pazz & Jop Poll. Not only that, the album also turned out to be one of the most compelling albums of 1990s. Hence selling more than 140,000 copies.

On Avery Island hit the shelves in 1996 officially putting Neutral Milk Hotel on the map. Incorporating a wide spectrum of genres such as indie rock, prog/rock, indie pop, lo-fi, neo-psychedelia and psych folk in the music, the album was released in the United States and UK. It acquired a positive response from Allmusic, NME, Ultimate Guitar, Twisted Ear and Skinny Mag. Hence delivering a number of hits like You've Passed, Where You'll Find Me Now, Someone is Waiting, Gardenhead/Leave Me Alone etc.
