Exploding Head Movies Episode March 12, 2012

XHM #106 - "Be the luckiest guy on the Lower East Side" (2012 March 12)

7:34am - 9:06am

With The Magnetic Fields in town this Sunday, this episode is all Stephin Merritt, including The Zinnias, Future Bible Heroes, the 6ths and his work for various films and audiobooks. One drag on how Merritt's music is often recorded is that it can be quite fuzzy when compressed, so some of these songs may sound tinny. The Magnetic Fields play the Vogue Theatre on Sunday March 10.
