A good proportion of the nation's biggest alternageeks squealed with incredulity when it was announced that the notoriously mercurial Neutral Milk Hotel – led by reclusive genius Jeff Magnum – were reuniting and touring Japan and other not-very-far-from-Australia-by-international-tour-standards toward the end of the year. But now we know that they're coming our way for Harvest. Either you've never heard of them, or parts of your brain are threatening to explode out of your head right now. We're definitely in the latter camp. Go listen to In the Aeroplane Over the Sea and join us.
Oh yeah, and the good folks at Harvest have just announced more of their line up. Look forward to:
Massive Attack, Franz Ferdinand, Goldfrapp, Desaparecidos (with Conor Oberst), Eels, CSS, the Drones, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, M Ward, Superchunk, the Wallflowers and Walk off the Earth.
