I had tickets to last night’s Olivia Tremor Control show at Bowery, but I was too tired to go (I know, lame — but you know you’ve done it too). Apparently Neutral Milk Hotel’s Jeff Mangum joined the band for “I Have Been Floated” and was in tears at the song’s end. Sounds like a great show. Maybe I’ll go tonight! Here are three minutes of jangly psychedelia from OTC’s epic Black Foliage. Animation Music Vol 1. I used to put it on mixtapes in college:
The Olivia Tremor Control – “A Peculiar Noise Called ‘Train Director’” (MP3 link expired)
Also: The Olivia Tremor Control – “Hideway” (MP3 link expired)
You really have to own the album, though.
UPDATE: “Medium-quality” video of Jeff & OTC at spin.com. (Thanks Caryn!)
