The Magnetic Fields

Stephin Merritt is an underground pop icon. As the head of several projects, including Future Bible Heroes, The Gothic Archies, the 6ths, and most notably, The Magnetic Fields, he has built a small indie empire and a formidable song collection. Thanks to his nerd-rock status, Merritt is no stranger to National Public Radio, and often a music critic's darling (he's also a music writer himself). But what truly makes a lasting impression on his fans is not only an ability to crank out products in record numbers or critical praise, but his beautifully homespun pop songs.
