For an artist with so many projects and musical outlets (and lets face it, Stephin Merritt has been fantastically prolific over the years) an obscurities package presents more than your usual stop gap between albums. Rather it serves as a primer for things you might have missed, things that first saw the light of day as 7” b-sides, location specific bonus tracks or alternative takes on subsequently released songs. Obscurities also includes five unreleased tunes from projects that haven't quite come to fruition (three songs here are from the sci-fi musical 'The [...]
El programa Late Late Show , que cuenta con la conducción de Craig Ferguson , tuvo invitados más que interesantes en la noche del lunes para "ayudarlo" a celebrar Halloween. En este sentido, la cantante de Dresden Dolls Amanda Palmer dirigió una banda que incluyó al barítono Stephin Merritt , líder de The Magnetic Fields , Moby y a su esposo Neil Gaiman [...]
Stephin Merritt, Amanda Palmer: “Science Fiction/Double Feature” In which Amanda Palmer takes a few friends (and her husband, Neil Gaiman) to the Late Late (Rocky Horror Picture) Show for a Halloween version of said cult classic’s opening number, “Science Fiction/Double Feature.” Watch above (via WLFY ) as the Magnetic Fields’ Stephin Merritt strums a ukulele and duets with Palmer while Moby provides acoustic guitar and backing vocals.
Watch: Amanda Palmer, Stephin Merritt and Moby – “Science Fiction/Double Feature” (live on Craig Ferguson)
Last night Craig Ferguson had some very special musical guests on his Late Late Show to help celebrate Halloween. Former Dresden Dolls singer Amanda Palmer led a band which included Moby and The Magnetic Fields' Stephin Merritt (and her husband Neil Gaiman) in a cover of the song "Science Fiction/Double Feature" from the movie The Rocky Horror Picture Show . It's a pretty marvelous performance not only for the crowd cheering every chorus, but for Merritt's uniquely curmudgeon-like attire. Check it out below. [via [...]
The best part of my Halloween was flipping through the channels late last night and landing on Craig Ferguson right as magic was about to happen. My eyes first caught Moby, what's Moby doing with acoustic guitar? Then Amanda Palmer and over to my hero Stephin Merritt. They were also joined by Palmer's husband and writer Neil Gaiman to cover "Science Fiction/Double Feature" from the cult film The Rocky Horror Picture Show . The combination is bizarre but the result is everything I could ever want from a Halloween performance.
Watch Amanda Palmber, Moby, Stephin Merritt of the Magnetic Fields, and author Neil Gaiman cover 'Science Fiction/Double Feature' on the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.
What better way to celebrate Halloween than with Dresden Doll Amanda Palmer? The singer appeared on Craig Ferguson's show last ... Read the full article at http://www.prefixmag.com/media /amanda-palmer-moby-stephin-me rritt/science-fictiondouble-fe ature-rocky-horror-cover-l/580 74/
Stephin Merritt -Obscurities Nobody likes being taken for a sucker. And yet how often do we as music fans get unnecessarily excited when one of our favourite artists deigns to release that unholy trinity: previously unreleased tracks, alternate versions and rarities? Yep, we're suckers alright. But this is Stephin Merritt so it'll all be fine, won't it? On his day, the Magnetic Fields et al's front man is quite possibly the greatest songwriter alive [...]
Stephin Merritt - Obscurities By Lucy Dearlove Stephin Merritt 's musical output has always sounded a bit like the product of a parallel New York City universe; he sings about the Chelsea Hotel, but it's in Manhattan where tangles of tiny guitars, Casio keyboards and bittersweet sad pop songs rattle down the streets and avenues like tumbleweed. While his later-recorded classic Magnetic Fields release 69 Love Songs was largely tight and precise production-wise, this collection of previously unreleased and side project material is full of barely [...]
Tweet Buy the album: Amazon | iTunes | Merge Records Stephin Merritt's "Obscurities" is an elegant compilation of tracks strung together by Merritt's identifiable songwriting style and the recurrence of his gentle, forlorn baritone (referenced playfully in the album's opening track "Forever and a Day" , "You're my sine qua non/And I'm a baritone/Marry me"). The songs are unreleased recordings, re-recordings, and B-sides from his work under many monikers, and from as early [...]
Luego del reciente retorno de The Magnetic Fields a su antiguo hogar Merge Records , ahora el sello anunció que está preparando el relanzamiento del emblemático álbum Holiday (1994) en formato vinilo. El LP fue lanzado originalmente a través del sello Feel Good All Over y luego reeditado en CD por Merge en 1999. Por lo tanto, esta última reedición marcará la salida del largamente esperado primer vinilo prensado del álbum. Holiday fue remasterizado [...]
Por Emmanuel Patrone “Somos unos zarpados” . Ya habían sonado ocho canciones en el ND/Ateneo , ocho versiones en español del amplio repertorio de Stephin Merritt cuando Sebastián Rubin (33,3 periódico por ciento de Los Campos Magnéticos ) lanzó esa afirmación. Su compañero Alvy Singer contó brevemente la historia de este proyecto a la concurrencia, que casi llenó el teatro de la calle Paraguay: “Al principio lo pensamos para hacer un par de [...]
Magnetic Fields songsmith Stephin Merritt rifles through his mind’s attic in compiling Obscurities. Stephin Merritt is nothing if not precise—in his speech, his painstaking approach to conceptually specific projects (including, most famously, the Magnetic Fields’ self-explanatory 1999 opus 69 Love Songs), and, especially, in his meticulously well-formed songcraft. Uncharacteristically, then, Obscurities, a new compilation issued [...]
