Back in the realm of more Merritt-related news, The New York Times posted this review of The Magnetic Fields' Town Hall show. Then, there's this review featuring a really glorious snippet of stage banter from Mr. Merritt. The Awl posted this really, really great review as well, featuring a pretty cool little backstory of the author's relationship to the band. Also: I'd kill to see Stephin Merritt sing "Bela Lugosi's Dead."
The previously-mentioned-on-this-blog Sound of Indie posted a file of The Magnetic Fields playing "You and Me and the Moon" at the Brooklyn show last month. And, not that I'm encouraging this sort of thing, but there's also a video of the band playing "Better Things" last night in Town Hall. Pretty beautiful stuff.
