My only criticism of the Mountain Oasis Electronic Music Summit is that too much great music was programmed at the same time, forcing some difficult decisions about where and when to show up. The 2014 edition cannot come soon enough.
On 4 December 2010, Jeff Mangum, indie rock's most reclusive star, performed a full acoustic set, the first in at least a decade. But does that make the possibility of a Neutral Milk Hotel reunion a good idea?
Jeff Mangum, Yo La Tengo, Will Oldham, Stephin Merritt, the Mountain Goats, the late Jay Reatard, and dozens more pay tribute to one of the best songwriters no one has ever heard of -- and what a joy it is to listen to.
