    The fact that Neutral Milk Hotel is releasing previously unheard tracks is like Michael Jordan coming out of retirement. We're not talking about when he came back and played for the Wizards. We're talking coming back to the Bulls and winning another three championships. The latest track available to stream now, before the full box set comes out on 11/22, is just what you'd expect from the indie-rock legends. The song, "Little Birds (Unfinished Version 2)" features Jeff Mangum, his acoustic guitar, and nasally delivery. Religion, death, and family issues all play together in Mangum's embittered lyrics. What else would you expect from a Neutral Milk Hotel song?

    Also, be sure to try and catch Neutral Milk Hotel on tour.
