is it odd that while i love the magnetic fields, i actually feel the exact opposite towards his other projects – save the first 6ths record?ï¿½ anyway, according to stephin’s site the new magnetic fields record is slated to be released sometime in early 08 presumably on merge. currently, he is working on a stage adaptation of neil gaimins’ coraline.
i have been listening the hell outta the charm of the highway strip and 69 love songs the past few weeks.ï¿½ depending on how you look at it, they are either two or four, since 69 is 3 discs, of my favorite records of all time.
long vermont roads from the charm of the highway strip
yeah! oh, yeah! from disc 3 of 69 love songs
for those of us in the atlanta area, voxtrot is playing this evening, wednesday the 27, at the drunken unicorn. admittedly, i love the two eps but find their full length quite a dreadful bore. opening the evenings festivities is brooklyn’s, and misra artist, palomar. they kinda remind me of a less poppy velocity girl or as their bio states, the fastbacks. their all things, forest can be pre-ordered through the misra website.
our haunt from all things, forest
