Song of the Day 14: Neutral Milk Hotel - Song Against Sex

As stereotypical as it may be, I am one of the people who think Neutral Milk Hotel's In the Aeroplane Over The Sea is a perfect record. Upon first listening of that record I had no idea the band had previously released any other music. I was so focused on IAOS that no other music mattered to me for about a three month period. However once I discovered their debut record On Avery Island, I immersed myself in a new experience from a band I thought i'd known inside and out. As the opening song of the record, "Song Against Sex" is both an energetic beginning and a beautiful introduction to what is to come from the band. With both the strange lyricism and unpredictable musicianship, Neutral Milk Hotel stamp their unique style onto the listener immediately.
