Proof in advertising. Proof in album titling.
THE MAGNETIC FIELDS' upcoming LP, DISTORTION, sounds like it was recorded at the bottom of a well -- all distant, swirling feedback and half-smothered melodies.
Maybe there's much damaged beauty to be unearthed here. Maybe I just need to dig deeper. Or maybe I've already heard all there is to hear. Which would piss me off. And make me sad.
DISTORTION will be released January 15 on NONESUCH.
[MP3] "The Nun's Litany"
