Stephin Merritt is likely one of my favorite musicians of all time.
69 Love Songs? Quite possibly the best album–and album title–ever. Not to mention a wicked sense of playfulness and melody and exquisite humor in every song.
Future Bible Heroes? Merritt’s side project to his already fabulous band, The Magnetic Fields.
A sound bite from one of the interviewees for this new documentary about Merritt and The Magnetic Fields, Strange Powers: “There is some kind of perception of Stephen as the Grumpy of rock ‘n roll.” Enough said.
Can’t wait til this one hits the theatres in Boston.
