The Magnetic Fields’ Distortion Album Art

Just started dipping into the Magnetic Fields’ forthcoming Distortion, loving every second. A more in depth evaluation’s sure to follow; in the meantime, chant along to the LP’s surf-y lead track “Three-Way,” and have a gander at Stephin’s conception of the album title — visually.

Distortion is out 1/18/08 on Nonesuch, featuring lots of “feedback acoustic piano.” There’s no large scale tour planned in support of the LP, but a few lucky cities (Sommerville, MA; NYC; San Fran; Hollywood; Seattle) will get multi-night residencies. Ticket info at Ticketmaster.
