Details: Lovely condition previously-owned compilation album featuring Stephin Merritt and projects The Magnetic Fields, The 6ths, Buffalo Rome, and The Gothic Archies. Black vinyl, US pressing on Merge Records, released in 2011. "A career-spanning collection of B-sides, rarities, and unreleased material from 1989-2011."

Description: "Though it's a collection of odds, ends, side projects, and B-sides from the pre-69 Love Songs era, Obscurities is surprisingly coherent and also a good reminder of the strength of Stephin Merritt's early songwriting and his ability to get the most out of his rotating cast of vocalists."--Brandon Stosuy, Pitchfork

"While it is easy to see why some of the tracks here have remained in the sidelines until now, there is still plenty to appreciate on Obscurities, providing as it does an excellent way into the deeper cuts of a particular period of an undoubtedly prolific career."--Ro Cemm, The Line of Best Fit
