LA Singer/songwriter Leslie Stevens joins me to chat about Neutral Milk Hotel's classic 1998 album 'In The Aeroplane Over the Sea'. We talk about The Diary of Anne Frank and it's influence on the album, authenticity in music and innocence lost. We unpack our teenage superiority complexes and debate whether genre labels are essential in the music world.
Leslie plays us an impromptu rendition of Norwegian Wood on her saw and we discuss vulnerability in song writing, whether 'Aeroplane Over the Sea' has dated and the album's hipster following.
