Merge Records presents Obscurities
by Stephin Merritt, a collection of Merritt's hard-to-find recordings dating back to his time on Merge (1994 1999) and prior, as well as five previously unreleased tracks.
In 1999, The Magnetic Fields' three-CD collection 69 Love Songs
established Stephin Merritt as one of this generation's most talented songwriters. The Los Angeles Times hails Merritt as "one of indie-rock's most acclaimed figures" while Pitchfork calls him "smart, thorough, and unerringly precise."
