New Release This Week: The Magnetic Fields – Distortion


Tomorrow marks the release of the first Magnetic Fields album in four years, the pretty excellent Distortion. You can read my thoughts on the album at length here, but speaking more informally, it’s nice to hear Stephin Merritt going back to the 60s pop explorations of his earlier work. If you haven’t checked out his output before the widely praised 69 Love Songs, I would strongly recommend picking up a copy of Holiday, available on Merge Records for an extremely reasonable price. It’s my favorite of Stephin & co’s many, many awesome records.
