Record company Merge are set to release Neutral Milk Hotel’s two studio albums on 180 Gram vinyl. Both In the Aeroplane Over the Sea and On Avery Island will also come packaged with a code to download the LP’s in high quality digital files.
The cult Indie band’s influence has been increasingly recognized over recent years, and Aeroplane was already the sixth best selling vinyl of 2008, having received full marks retrospectively from AllMusic and Pitchfork.
Fronted by Jeff Mangum, the group have never officially split but haven’t released new music in over eleven years. No bonus material is bundled with the new releases.
