Stephin Merritt

Stephin Merritt. His songs are often dark, yet upbeat, dry, tongue-in-cheek, synthy, and come in the form of several different projects.

With his most well known being the Magnetic Fields, Merritt has also written an unofficial soundtrack to his friend's novel "A Series Of Unfortunate Events", under The Gothic Archies name. You can find his music in the form of The 6ths, aswell as Future Bible Heroes.

Here are a few of my favorites of his:

The Gothic Archies - This Abyss
Magnetic Fields - Smoke And Mirrors
The 6ths with Gary Numan- The Sailor In Love With The Sea
