Apples in Stereo, A Hawk and A Hacksaw... Neutral Milk Hotel reunion?

I love the thought, Jake, but I wouldn't get my hopes up if I were you. Pitchfork has a standing invitation to Jeff & Co. that they can play anytime they want -- I wouldn't read anything into the bands that are already playing.

Although... Robert Schneider keeps on claiming that Jeff is, y'know, sane, alive, and could make great music again if he wanted to.
