Neutral Milk Hotel - On Avery Island Music Album Reviews

Each Sunday, Pitchfork takes an in-depth look at a significant album from the past, and any record not in our archives is eligible. Today, we revisit the oft-overshadowed debut from indie rock icons, a smaller and more intimate look into the mercurial world of Jeff Mangum.
In the mid-’90s, Jeff Mangum moved into a haunted closet in Denver where he had dreams of women in fur coats drinking champagne, yelling at him to get out of their house. During a snowy Colorado winter, the Louisiana-born songwriter and his childhood friend Robert Schneider set about recording what would become Neutral Milk Hotel’s debut album. They worked feverishly, going out to smoke cigarettes when they hit a roadblock, until, in May of 1995, they had a finished record. The North Carolina indie label Merge scooped up the young band and quietly released On Avery Island the following March.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Release Date, Features And Gameplay News

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order was announced at EA's press conference at E3 2018 and promises some lightsaber wielding goodness for November 2019

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is the next Star Wars title to come from Electronic Arts and Respawn Entertainment. The title has been confirmed to be single player, narrative-focused action game without the inclusion of micro-transactions.


The game will be set just after the events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith after the infamous Order 66 has been executed. The game will follow the actions of a Jedi Padawan in hiding named Cal Kestis who managed to avoid execution and is hiding from the Empire in plain sight.

If you can't get enough of the Star Wars goodness, make sure you take a look at the latest details for Rise of the Skywalker and The Mandalorian TV Show.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Release Date And Platforms
Fallen Order will release on 15 November 2019 on PC and consoles.

You can pre-order the Standard or Deluxe edition on Origin right now, with the latter including some extra cosmetic DLC, behind the scenes features and content.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Gameplay
Your journey through the eyes of Cal will have you meet many different characters, both good and bad, across several worlds and locations from the Star Wars universe. You’ll eventually be hunted by the Inquisition and a particularly powerful Jedi hunter called the Second Sister. You’ll also encounter anti-Jedi stormtroopers called Purge Troopers, designed specifically to deal with force users.

The game will focus around lightsaber combat through a combat system that will include parrying and dodging attacks, while a host of force abilities will accompany this to provide the full Jedi experience. Platforming will also play a heavy role in the game, allowing players to use the environment to move around and create their own solutions to problems, in a style that looks very reminiscent of the Uncharted games.

According to Respawn, Cal’s lightsaber will also evolve and change over the course of the game, although details are pretty hazy around this. It’s would be an interesting spin to move with a Padawan as he explores his own connection to the force as you move through the game and we’re hoping that’s what we’re getting.

At EA Play 2019 - the company's annual pre-E3 event - the company unveiled 14 full minutes of gameplay from Fallen Order, so watch that right here for the best sense of what to expect. There's a mix of platforming, puzzle-solving, and lightsaber fights, along with a tease of the story and the appearance of a couple familiar faces from Rogue One:

Micro-transactions in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order
Thankfully, EA has confirmed that microtransactions won’t be a part of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.

It’s a bit sad that this needs to be highlighted and noted, particularly for a single player game, but EA’s reputation for aggressively monetizing their games is well earned. Hopefully, we won’t be seeing any changes on this issue.
