The Magnetic Fields' 'Noise' from New York
Rock critic Ken Tucker reviews Distortion by New York City band The Magnetic Fields. Front man and producer Stephin Merritt uses feedback between electrified instruments to create distorted white noise — hence the album title.
Accompanying Merritt on the new album is cellist Sam Davol, pianist Claudia Gonson, guitarist John Woo and Daniel Handler on accordion.
