Stephin Merritt

Stephin Merritt is one of the most prominent and most prolific (The Magnetic Fields, Gothic Archies, Future Bible Heroes) songwriters of this or any other generation. For The 6ths, Merritt pens the words and music, but then invites a diverse cast of singers to handle the vocal duties. Hyacinths and Thistles is a stunning collection of songs and performers Spectorian in scope and grandeur.
