This is a self-recorded demo tape by the lo-fi/indie/folk band Neutral Milk Hotel. Because it's a demo and was originally recorded on cassette, the sound quality isn't that great. Despite this you should definitely take a listen, if not for NMH being an amazing band then for the sheer insanity that goes on in the recording. Some of the songs are melodic, while others just seem like organized chaos. "Synthetic Flying Machine" is a very early version of the song "The King of Carrot Flowers Part 3" from NMH's classic In The Aeroplane Over The Sea. I love Neutral Milk Hotel and this album is a good look their early days as a band.
