The Magnetic Fields : Andrew In Drag


The Magnetic Fields’ new album is a bubbling electro folk charmer, but the lead single isn’t necessarily the best track on the album. With a cute breakaway chorus, Andrew In Drag showcases Stephin Merritt’s familiar tongue-in-cheek style through the standard tropes of unrequited love and sexual transgression: “A pity she does not exist / A shame he’s not a fag / The only girl I’ve ever loved was Andrew in drag.” His playful lyrical kicks are still utterly adorable, especially when crooned in that old world romantic baritone.
