Stephin Merritt

Stephin Merritt - Words and Music - 2012

by Russ Borris

From FUV's Russ Borris: 'Sometimes Stephin Merritt's dry demeanor can be misunderstood as standoffish or apathetic. But, I thought he was very friendly and interesting when he stopped by WFUV for a live session in Studio A. He played a couple from The Magnetic Fields' new album 'Love at the Bottom of the Sea' and mixed in the longtime favorite 'The Book of Love.' At one point, Stephin was searching for sucking candy. Little did we know that our tremendous supply of Jolly Ranchers in the station's foyer would come in handy! Blue Raspberry to the rescue!

Stephin Merritt counts Magnetic Fields and The Sixths among his list of bands, and now with The Gothic Archies he's compiled a collection of songs based on the 'Lemony Snicket' books, called 'The Tragic Treasury.' Tonight he talks with Claudia Marshall about why you shouldn't listen to the album.
