Default Ethan's Album of the Day

That's right, prepare for albums that will blow your mind. I ditched the Crowquill 100 for this.

The Magnetic Fields "69 Love Songs"


I've been listening to this album nearly non-stop all week and I think it could now be my favorite set of albums ever. Stephin Merritt writes some of the most incredible lyrics ever (The tears have stained all the pages of my True Romance magazines / We still dance in my outrageously beautiful Busby Berkeley dreams / And now you want to leave me for good / I refuse to believe you could / You forget we're not made of wood / Well, darling you may do your worst, because you'll have to kill me first.) and his vocals are a haunting mixture of Johnny Cash and Ian Curtis, which is a pretty good summary of the music itself too. Combining folk tendencies withsynth-pop with tons of other things in there 69 Love Songs is a masterpiece.

Favorite Songs: All My Little Words, Absolutely Cuckoo, I Don't Want To Get Over You, I Think I Need a New Heart, My Only Friend, Promises of Eternity, Papa Was a Rodeo, Epitaph For My Heart, Asleep and Dreaming, I Shatter, Busby Berkeley Dreams, Long-Forgotten Fairytale, (Crazy For You But) Not That Crazy

YouTube - I Don't Want To Get Over You.

Video to one of the best songs on the album. I should note I'm not fucking about when I say this could be my favorite albums ever. It's seriously that good.

Out of interest, what was it that encouraged you to listen to this? Was it the release of Distortion or had you been planning it previously?

Hello Saferide "Introducing...Hello Saferide"


This album is addictive swedish acoustic based twee. The lyrics are beautiful, before diving into music she'd planned to be a writer and her literacy shines through in several part. On the surface the lyrics can be very cutesy but sometimes there's a darker side to them with this tongue and cheek pop culture type thing. I honestly don't know who to compare this to, I know it's not very original stuff but that doesn't take away from how quality it is.

Favorite Songs: My Best Friend, If I Don't Write This Song Someone I Love Will Die, Long Lost Penpal, I Can't Believe It's Not Love!, High School Stalker

You ain't wrong. I only discovered her work about about 3-4 weeks ago after reading a review or recommendation you'd posted on here somewhere, and find myself listening to either the album and/or the "...10 Times A Day" EP on a daily basis. Really great stuff.

'If I Don't Write This Song Someone I Love Will Die' is one of my favorite songs at the moment. She does have a very nice voice as well
