The unique inside story of the collective creative evolution behind the sounds of 1990s psychedelic rock bands the Olivia Tremor Control, Neutral Milk Hotel, and the Apples in Stereo – the founding groups behind the Elephant 6 collective, as well as a host of other artists -- with inspirational resonance for today’s music makers, and music lovers everywhere.

Stockfleth's documentary celebrates the joyful spirit of the DIY collective that supported an entire scene, supporting musicians and non-musicians alike to create their own art using consumer 4- and 8-track tape recorders, and producing landmark records including NMH's In the Aeroplane Over the Sea.
