the magnetic fields - 100 000 fireflies 7" 1992

the magnetic fields' variation of musical genres were pretty vague (in a good way). shifting from lo-fi to synthpop, synthpop to indie, indie to alternative and alternative to experimental, not in this order... but i mean that's gotta be hard to follow. the only other band i know that switched and experimented and made sense were the blur..... non of their albums sounds like their previous record. and i think that's an amazing accomplishment to have a wide or several signature sound as to most band carry on sounding pretty much within its genre or sub-genres. with 14 albums maybe more all on independent labels(merge records, new york's very own nonesuch records) in the last two decades(realism being the latest, nonesuch 2010) it's safe to say tmf's been around the warm bend and truly an indie veteran. and here's one of their most sought after single released under harriet records, the band's 2nd single from the 1992 album "the wayward bus" under popup records.
