The Biggest Tits in History, The Magnetic Fields

the-magnetics-fields-quickies

The Magnetic Fields a revenit luna aceasta cu o nouă colecție de cântece. Mai exact, 28 de cântece, toate scrise de Stephin Merritt. În plus, acestea mai au o particularitate: toate au sub 3 minute. Iar albumul se chemă Quickies.

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.
