Now in their third decade of mutating indie and electro pop into extravagant, concise, and witty post-Broadway showstoppers, the Magnetic Fields just put out their 11th LP, Love at the Bottom of the Sea. On it, Stephin Merritt remains in fine form, having composed imaginative songs about a straight man falling in love with a friend in drag and the self-explanatory “All She Cares About Is Mariachi.” Better than that, though, is hearing how the group transforms their repertoire into something new when they play them acoustically live. With DeVotchKa.
