        The Magnetic Fields

        Quickies - Black Friday 2020 Edition

          THIS IS A BLACK FRIDAY RELEASE AVAILABLE ONLINE ONLY ON FRIDAY NOVEMBER 27TH FROM 6PM.
          LIMITED TO ONE PER PERSON.


          For this year’s Record Store Day “Black Friday”, Nonesuch releases a limited-edition version of The Magnetic Fields’ acclaimed Quickies. The new Record Store Day edition of Quickies is a single 12" 140g transparent magenta coloured disc version of the acclaimed 7" box set, first released in May. It features the original twenty-eight short songs by Stephin Merritt, ranging in length from thirteen seconds to two minutes and thirty-five seconds, as well as a bonus track, ‘The Witches Fly’.

          Merritt explains his thinking behind the Quickies concept: “I’ve been reading a lot of very short fiction, and I enjoyed writing 101 Two-Letter Words, the poetry book about the shortest words you can use in Scrabble. And I’ve been listening to a lot of French baroque harpsichord music. Harpsichord doesn’t lend itself to languor. So I’ve been thinking about one instrument at a time, playing for about a minute or so and then stopping, and I’ve been thinking of narratives that are only a few lines long. Also, I had been using a lot of small notebooks, so when I reach the bottom of the page, I’ve only gone a short way. Now that I’m working on a different album, I’m enforcing a large notebook rule so that I don’t do Quickies twice in a row.”

          Quickies features Merritt and other Magnetic Fields band members Sam Davol, Claudia Gonson, Shirley Simms, and John Woo. They are joined by longtime friends and collaborators Chris Ewen, Daniel Handler, and Pinky Weitzman.

          To date, Stephin Merritt has written and recorded twelve Magnetic Fields albums, including the beloved 69 Love Songs and the 2017 critically acclaimed Nonesuch box set, 50 Song Memoir, which chronicled the first fifty years of the songwriter’s life with one song per year. New York magazine called the box set ‘a celebration of Merritt’s sky-high range as a writer and a player, through the exploration of the circumstances that helped cultivate it … a delightful flip through the untold back pages of one of rock’s most singular voices, and, all in all, the best damned Magnetic Fields album in the last ten years.’ Merritt has also composed original music and lyrics for several music theatre pieces, including an off-Broadway stage musical of Neil Gaiman’s novel Coraline, for which he received an Obie Award. In 2014, Merritt composed songs and background music for the first musical episode of public radio’s This American Life. Stephin Merritt also releases albums under the band names the 6ths, the Gothic Archies, and Future Bible Heroes.

          A Breukelen Story Instrumentals

            THIS IS A BLACK FRIDAY RELEASE AVAILABLE ONLINE ONLY ON FRIDAY NOVEMBER 27TH FROM 6PM.
            LIMITED TO ONE PER PERSON.


            A random meeting and a beat CD resultantly birthed 'A Breukelen Story', a collaborative release between the venerable veteran, Masta Ace and the incredibly detailed and prolific producer, Marco Polo. 14 tracks with pronounced guests (Pharoahe Monch on “The Fight Song” for example) all strewn together through Ace’s signature skits and interludes that frame the music and while telling the story of Polo manifesting his vision of being an NY transplant via Toronto while pursuing his dream of being a renowned record producer. The Instrumental album features Polo’s pastiche style boom-bap as the drum-driven centrepiece that perfectly couches Masta Ace’s thoughtful stanzas and vivid storytelling for this effusive Brooklyn narrative. 

            Fred Neil

            38 MacDougal

              THIS IS A BLACK FRIDAY RELEASE AVAILABLE ONLINE ONLY ON FRIDAY NOVEMBER 27TH FROM 6PM.
              LIMITED TO ONE PER PERSON.

              Mastertone Studios, NYC,1965...Amidst mounting friction with producer Paul Rothchild, Fred Neil walks out on the unfinished sessions for what was to be his debut album, "Bleecker & MacDougal".Fearing he wouldn't return to the studio, his friend and guitar player, Peter Childs, invited him down to the Greenwich Village apartment he shared with John Sebastian, at 38 MacDougal. According to Childs, "the best chance to get Freddie back wouldn't be to try to persuade him verbally, but to get him over to the apartment for a bit of music-making". What transpired on that afternoon was a legendary singer-songwriter and his long-time accompanist making music for the pure joy of it, a one-of-a-kind private performance, captured on Ampex reel to reel, and stored for over fifty years!

              The previously unreleased recordings contained on "38 MacDougal" were beautifully detailed in Peter Lee Neff's 2018 Fred Neil biography, "That's The Bag I'm In".Fred and Peter perform songs that would later wind up on "Bleecker & MacDougal"("Travellin' Shoes", "Country Boy", "Gone Again", "Candy Man", "Little Bit Of Rain"), a definitive "Sweet Cocaine", and two PD songs that don't appear on any other Fred Neil album; the traditional folk song, "Once I Had A Sweetheart", and the African-American spiritual, "Blind Man Standing By The Road And Crying".The latter is our personal favorite, and despite the biography mentioning the song cutting off before it ends, Delmore's tape magically contained the complete performance in all its glory.Fred takes the song on a personal and deep journey, and Peter adds the most perfect musical touches.It's also the first appearance on a Fred Neil record of one of the many Spiritual songs that were often a part of his live repertoire.

                  He made remixes matter more than the original songs. He introduced dramatic, forceful horns to rap’s sonic discussion.
