An interview with the now-Hudson based singer/songwriter from The Magnetic Fields, and a broadcast of his solo performance recorded July 25, 2014 at Helsinki Hudson. Bubblegum purist Stephin Merritt has released seven albums by his band The Magnetic Fields, and two albums from The 6ths, all of them featuring extremely catchy songs. Besides the Magnetic Fields and The 6ths, Stephin also creates music under the names Future Bible Heroes and The Gothic Archies. Merritt's five former Magnetic Fields albums --Distant Plastic Trees, The Wayward Bus, Holiday, and The Charm of the Highway Strip and Get Lost have placed him deep within the heart of the underground music community for nearly a decade. Now, with domestic sales of his latest album "69 Love Songs" reaching over 150,000, Merritt's work has brought him away from his former rarified status as "indie rock hero", and garnered him mainstream success.
