OOoh, new music for me - thanks, Patti.

Fab music! Stephin Merritt also has intriguing music in collaboration with others, like Daniel Handler (The Gothic Archies) and with many different "guest singers" as The 6ths.

One of my favorite tunes from that three album series. I first heard of the band a few months ago when BBC6 played ANDREW IN DRAG, http://youtu.be/Jf_l3EGQvL8.

Re: John's comments. When I first heard the band I thought "That sounds like the music from Series of Unfortunate Events.

THE MAGNETIC FIELDS?! Awesome, Patti. Love them...particularly this song. Not many songs have a battleaxe swinging protagonist.

I always suspected you had latent psychic powers. Please use them only for good. And please let me know what the winning Powerball number will be next month.

Forgot to say that my fave Magnetic Fields tune is the classic "I Don't Really Love You Anymore." It's so upbeat and freeing! Perfect tonic for anyone who is going through a break-up. I prescribe it regularly for all my serial monogamist friends.
