Let's Pretend We're Bunny Rabbits - The Magnetic Fields

Legbamel Not-Pop

For the most part, if you've heard two songs from The Magnetic Fields you've heard them all. (I say that because of Tokyo-a-Go-Go and some other songs that feature a female vocalist.) But that doesn't mean that you can't enjoy them in rotation with other bands, just that listening to a whole album leads to clever-lyric overkill with angsty-vocal overload not far behind.

That said, Let's Pretend We're Bunny Rabbits deserves a listen or two. It's cute, yeah, but not really in a fluffy bunny way. The Magnetic Fields are deep in indie country, with nontraditional "rock band" instrumentation and a distinct lack of auto-tune coupled with a strong flavor of geek. If that sounds like your sort of thing, enjoy the bunnies and have a listen to You Must Be out of Your Mind for a nice anti-love song to get the rabbits out of your mind.
