    Watch: The Magnetic Fields Perform for Rough Trade 'Transmissions' Series

    The Magnetic Fields got together separately to perform songs from their new album, Quickies, for Rough Trade's Transmissions series on IGTV. As on the album, Stephin Merritt and other Magnetic Fields band members Sam Davol, Claudia Gonson, Shirley Simms, and John Woo are joined for the session, which premiered today, by longtime friends and collaborators Chris Ewen, Daniel Handler, and Pinky Weitzman. The program includes the performances of "Favorite Bar," "The Best Cup of Coffee in Tennessee," "Rock 'n' Roll Guy," "When She Plays the Toy Piano," "You've Got a Friend in Beelzebub," "Death Pact (Let's Make A)," as well as conversations among the various band members (and family). You can watch it below via Rough Trade's IGTV.

    You can pick up a copy of Quickies in a five 7" vinyl box set, single CD, and digital album here.

    Mountain Man—the trio of Amelia Meath, Alexandra Sauser-Monnig, and Molly Sarlé—has released Look at Me Don’t Look at Me, a live album recorded in November 2018 at Saint Mark’s Cathedral in Seattle. The live recording captures the band’s intimate touring shows in support of its acclaimed Nonesuch release, Magic Ship, and features tracks from that album, as well as songs from the trio’s 2010 debut, Made the Harbor; Molly Sarle's “Human”; covers of Fiona Apple's “Hot Knife” and Michael Hurley's "Blue Mountain"; and the group’s singularly quirky banter.
