Production Language English
Country of Origin United States
Description Founded and fronted by singer-songwriter, producer, and instrumentalist Stephin Merritt, orchestral pop band The Magnetic Fields has put out nine albums and countless singles, including Get Lost, the landmark 69 Love Songs, and their latest release REALISM (Nonesuch Records, January 2010). Ever experimenting with a suite of unorthodox instruments including dry leaves, ukuleles, gongs and marxiphones, the witty, sardonic, sometimes playful songs run the gamut from bubblegum pop to elegant, gloomy ballads about love, loss, vampires, the moon, and the occasional umbrella.
