As if in repulsion of the 21st century and its failed promises, more artists and listeners are turning to the first half of another century — the 20th — for musical inspiration. But while Americana has typically manifested itself in the form of alt-country pining per Wilco or direct librarianism (see the Soggy Bottom Boys), few have innovated to the same degree as Jeremy Barnes of Neutral Milk Hotel has on this release. Opening with "Maremailette," the immediate connection is made to the repetitive looping of Steve Reich and Philip Glass. However, the song soon begins to swell with accordion and tin pan drums, which are a much more accurate signpost to what follows.
