Jeff Mangum Sings with E6 All-Starr Band

Tiny Mix Tapes reports that Neutral Milk Hotel leader Jeff Mangum performed three songs in New York with Julian Koster‘s “Elephant 6 Holiday Surprise” tour:

He came on stage and sang on part of Olivia Tremor Control‘s “I Have Been Floated” and Elf Power‘s “The Arrow Flies Close,” as well as the entirety of Olivia Tremor Control’s “The Opera House” with the whole E6 crew at the end of the night.

Exciting stuff. The “Elephant Six Orchestra” is comprised of Koster along with Will Cullen Hart, Scott Spillane, Laura Carter, Eric Harris, Nesey Gallons, the Singing Saw, the 7 Foot Tall Metronome, and Static the Television.

YouTube video, of course, after the jump…
