PO: The Gerbils - Are You Sleepy (Reissue) [FFO: Elephant 6, Neutral Milk Hotel, Olivia Tremor Control, etc.]

Recommended Posts

Kickstarter actually includes their first 2 albums. They're pretty close to reaching their goal.

 

The Gerbils included a couple Neutral Milk Hotel members. Are You Sleepy is truly one of the gems of the Elephant 6 discography. 

 

Supposedly E6 is going to be launching several Kickstarter campaigns throughout the year to reissue some of their back catalog. Keep an eye out.

How 'bout some fuckin' Beulah reissues? Amiright?

You are right. Handsome Western States needs to be pressed.

 

I ended up getting the hand-poured version of Are You Sleepy through the Kickstarter, but am trying to get better at saving money so didn’t spring for the bundle. Really looking forward to this.

Yessssss. I want When Your Heartstrings Break badly too. And I wouldn't scoff at The Coast Is Never Clear even though I have that one and spent more than I'd have liked to on it.

So much focus on Neutral Milk Hotel, Olivia Tremor Control & Apples in Stereo ended up causing a lot of the smaller bands to get ignored.

 

Beulah was great. And the Gerbils had a run of killer 7”singles in the late 90s that are well worth checking out if you’re into that DIY, bedroom indie sound.

Maybe they’ll do a Kickstarter for those too. I would buy the hell out of them.
