    i had been meaning to listen to more of The Magnetic Fields for awhile, ever since i learned that Lemony Snicket, or david handler, played accordian for them. i'd been hearing tracks from them on KEXP, so i recently obtained the album 69 love songs. i love it, mainly because it alternates between being very poignant, thoughtful, and sad, and being hilarious.

    also, they are apparently releasing songs to accompany mr. snicket's amazing series of books, which will be released on friday october 13 in tandem with the last book in the series. it is excited to know that my two great loves, childrens lit and indie rock, are being combined.
