A blog devoted to the works of Stephin Merritt of The Magnetic Fields, The 6ths, Future Bible Heroes, The Gothic Archies, et al. This blog will feature news related to his work, as well as occasional fanboy gushes from the author. Thank you for stopping by, and may all your dreams come true.

The website Insound just listed the pre-order option for Realism. If you preorder it, you get an instant (and free) download of the song "We Are Having a Hootenanny." Also, if you enter the code magfieldsrealism10, you will get 10% off of your order total.

Having just listened to the song about five times in a row, I can say without guilt that it is pretty much totally worth it. The instrumentation is really, really beautifully arranged, and (as one could guess from the title), it's a completely fun little ditty. The emphasis on the z's makes me smile, Mr. Handler's accordion makes me giddy, the fiddle solo at the end makes me jump for joy, and in general, folks, you have one excited blogger on your hands. Please download and enjoy and support Mr. Merritt's upcoming album all you can.
