Spanish can't hurt you

Are you totally in the mood to listen to the Magnetic Fields today, yet aware that Stephin Merritt's lyrics could very well be the death of you should you give in to this temptation considering your current emotional state? Well have I got the answer for you: Alvy, Nacho y Rubin interpretan a Los Campos Magneticos.

It's dudes playing Stephin Merritt songs, but in Spanish. And Spanish can't hurt you. Unless you like, speak it. If you do, here's a little paragraph about them that, once you read it, will make you more of an authority on the subject than I because I can't:

Alvy, Nacho y Rubin interpretan a los Campos Magnéticos es el resultado de un singular proceso de investigación y traducción sobre las formas y los modos con que Stephin Merritt construyó un repertorio de canciones de amor universales desde una plataforma musical sorprendente, que sumerge tanto la pluma en ABBA como en Gershwin.

Go listen to it.
