Following in the footsteps of the spectacular “99 Love Songs”, an album with which Stephen Merritt focused on love from every possible angle and signed one of the most acclaimed albums of independent pop, the leader of The Magnetic Fields is back with “50 Song Memoir”, a sort of musical autobiography in which Merritt dedicates one song to each decade of his life. A new milestone in a career full of high points and with which the Boston band has perfected its domestic, minimalist pop thanks to albums such as “Get Lost” and “I”. Forever restless inquisitive, Merritt doesn’t bat an eyelid when fooling around with electronic music on “Love At The Bottom Of The Sea” or with tons of distortion on “Distorted”.
