Stephin Merritt and friends have been in a hibernation of sorts, not having released an album in almost four years.  They’re back with a new album, Love at the Bottom of the Sea, featuring Merritt’s idiosyncratic wit and unique perspective.  That’s one way of putting it.  A 1950s psychologist would have a field day with “Andrew in Drag”, but to me it’s just a pleasant melody talking about the complexity of love. Or something like that.

Behrnsie has a love for music that dare not speak its name. He attends many shows and can often be found counting out the beats for no discernible reason. He played alto saxophone in his middle school jazz band, where he was best known for infuriating his instructor when it was revealed that he played everything by ear, and could not in fact read music. He takes great pride that this is the same talent/affliction that got Tori Amos kicked out of the Peabody Academy. He does not live in his parents’ basement….except during the holidays.
