The Magnetic Fields: Love at the Bottom of the Sea
Buy! - (Merge)
The 10th album from Stephin Merritt & co. finds them returning to a more synth-based sound, but with more unusual synth textures and patterns. The strange-sounding synths inject some raw, off-kilter energy to these quirky and concise electro-pop tunes (of the album’s 15 songs, none are longer than three minutes). Merritt’s pen is in fine form here, combining darkly funny lyrics with clever rhymes and sugary pop melodies. 2/24/2012 - Don Yates
