Neutral Milk Hotel albums ‘On Avery Island’ & ‘Everything Is’ to be Reissued by Fire

Two of Neutral Milk Hotel’s classic 90s albums are to be reissued by Fire Records. The first “On Avery Island (2011)” get’s reissued (on CD and both red and yellow vinyl) on August 22nd. While “Everything Is (2011)” repressed and released on 7″ vinyl on August 8th.

The 1996 debut album from Neutral Milk Hotel, ‘On Avery Island’ was the full offering that followed the 1994 EP ‘Everything Is’. A lo-fi masterpiece with Jeff Mangum the main driving force, ‘On Avery Island’ is a whirlwind of off-beat singing and fuzz guitar, woven into a collective of songs that forms a concept album in its most natural state. On Avery Island is to be reissued on CD and both Red and Yellow Vinyl.

Everything Is was Neutral Milk Hotel’s first 7″ EP. First release in 1994, it came with the B-side ‘Snow Song Pt.1’. Fire then released the EP on CD with the addition of Jeff Mangum’s sonic collage ‘Aunt Eggma Blowtorch’ . Now Fire are delighted to repressing the ‘Everything Is’ EP in its original state on 7″ vinyl, to help celebrate the reissue of ‘On Avery Island’ and to make this treasured EP available again.
