merits of music

I did a Q&A with Stephin Merritt of The Magnetic Fields, and many other groups, a little while ago about the release of "Showtunes," a compilation of his songs from the three musical theater works that he did in collaboration with director Chen Shi-Zheng. He has an interesting theory about climate and instruments. Doesn't that just pique your interest and tickle your fancy? Anyways, that's that.

Some clips from Showtunes.
