MAGNETIC FIELDS: Distortion (2008)

Ako ima još onih koji to ne znaju, Magnetic Fields su jedan od bezbrojnih projekata jednog od največih umjetnika današnjice - Stephen Merritt-a. (po meni jedina osoba koja se po meni može mjeriti sa njegovim genijalnim tekstovima je nitko drugi nego David Gedge). Najlegendarniji album Magnetic Fields je trostruki "69 Love Songs" koji je sa svojih 69 indie pop pjesmica oduševio sve i završio na manje više svakoj listi najboljih albuma te godine.

Novi album "Distortion" najbolje opisuje njegove ime jer je čitav album umotan u My Bloody Valentinesku fuzzy distorziju i skoro je čista preslika zvuka Jesus and Mary Chain sa Psychocandy ploče. Kada svemu tome dodate ironične Merrittove tekstove rezultat ne može biti loš. Sigurno da je u pitanju, barem za mene, jedna od ploča godine, iako je tek prvi mjesec. Od uvodne surferske "Three-Way" pa do "Too Drunk To Dream" i "Nun's Litany" u pitanju su sve instant klasici.

Ako se mene pita ni jedna fešta ili doček nove godine ne bi smjeli proči da se ne pusti "Too Drunk to Dream"

Magnetic Fields

Pa ukoliko poslušate Distortion i svidi vam se, predlažem vam da krenete unatrag i poslušate osim ostalih Magnetic Fields albuma i ostale Merrittove bendove - Gothic Archies, Future Bible Heroes i 6ths, jer je svaki od njih poseban a opet prepoznatljiv dio jedne velike cjeline.

ocjena albuma [1-10]: 10

PS: Lyrics - The Nun's Litany

I want to be a Playboy's bunny
I'd do whatever they asked me to
I'd meet people with lots of money
And they would love me like I loved you

I want to be a topless waitress
I want my mother to shed one tear
I'd throw away this old, sedate dress
Slip into something a tad more sheer

I want to be an artist's model
An odalisque au naturel
I should be good at spin the bottle
While I've still got something left to sell

I want to be a cobra dancer
With little Willie between my thighs
I may not find a cure for cancer
But I'll meet plenty of single guys

I want to be a brothel worker
I've always been treated like one
If I could be a back-street lurker
I'd make more money and have more fun

I want to be a dominatrix
Which isn't like me, but I can dream
Learn S&M and all those gay tricks
And men will pay me to make them scream

I want to be a porno starlet
For that I'll wait 'til Mama's dead
I'll see my name in lights of scarlet
And get to spend every day in bed

I want to be a tattooed lady
Dedicated as I am to art
Characters bold, complex and shady
Will write my memoirs across my heart
