The Late Junction Mixtape with Stephin Merritt
A mixtape compiled by Magnetic Fields frontman Stephin Merritt, featuring unlikely cover versions. With Klaus Nomi covering Lou Christie and Mrs Miller covering Cole Porter.
Magnetic Fields frontman Stephin Merritt has just completed a 50-song concept album, for which he wrote one song about each year of his life so far. Nonetheless, he has found time to put together a Late Junction Mixtape too, following on the heels of recent compilers Genesis P-Orridge, Beatrice Dillon, and Fenriz. Merritt's mix is bookended by atonal, instrumental oddities, but the meat of it comes from his love of unlikely cover versions. Featured artists include Klaus Nomi covering Lou Christie and Mrs. Miller covering Cole Porter.
