Swag Tuesday

Courtesy of the Karpel Group, today's Swag Tuesday prize is Love At The Bottom Of The Sea, the tenth studio album from cult favorites Magnetic Fields. The release is available beginning today at Amazon, iTunes, and at retailers nationwide.
There is no official theme for The Magnetic Fields’ tenth full-length release, Love at the Bottom of the Sea, but Merritt describes it as a return to their roots (synths!). In it, he challenged himself to use synthesizers in different ways. “Our no-synth trilogy being over, we are now gleefully using synthesizers in ever more improbable ways, often sounding like electronic swarms of crickets and that sort of thing. What I wanted to do with the synthesizers was bring in chance and indeterminacy, not necessarily in a Cage-ian way where you allow anything that happens to happen, but I wanted to let the more unusual synthesizers and electronic instruments make their strange sounds and then I would edit and pick and choose between different parts that they made,” he says.
We have three CD copies of Love At The Bottom Of The Sea to give away. Enter to win by commenting on this post. Only enter once and please remember to leave your email address in the text of your comment. Entries close at midnight on Thursday, west coast time.
