Not another one-man band with a handful of other rotating musicians. It seems like that’s the only kind of band I listen to these days. The Magnetic Fields are a project Stephin Merritt started in the 90s in New York. Sometimes called synth-pop the band reminds me of the Smiths or Belle and Sebastian. The selling point of the band for me are the witty lyrics, check out especially The Luckiest Guy On The Lower East Side.
