I feel like a totally ignorant tit right now. I must confess that I've never heard The Magnetic Fields until now....and this is their tenth studio album! I feel awful. Sorry lads. The press release tells me that this is a return to their synth based experimentation's of the mid 90's and sees the group utilising mainly acoustic guitars and the aforementioned synths. Again, this'll be my ignorance showing here but this really reminds me of They Might be Giants. The new stuff, not the old classics. It's the laidback, we've seen and done it all approach to quirky pop songwriting I make reference too. It's hard not to enjoy these ultra condensed pop nuggets especially as they're jam-packed with both musical and lyrical wit and charm, as is the case with all the best indie-pop...and they never outstay their welcome bwith everyting clocking in at the three minute mark. There's elements of romantic camp, indie high drama, kitchy goofball pop, electro-shuffle and off course, genuine heartfelt moments sandwiched in there for good measure. They're only human afterall. So yeah, sorry Merritt and the gang. I'll get my shit together and check out the back catalog. I'm slapping my own hand right now.
