There’s a reason they call romantics hopeless, and it’s because while love can raise you up to dizzying heights of euphoria, it’ll also send you slamming into the ground with the speed of freight train and zero explanation. There aren’t many people in the world who know this better than comedian Tony Sam, host of the podcast Legally Insane and ‘Food: Fact or Fiction?’ on the Cooking Channel. He’s had his heart ripped out more than a few times, enough so to know he isn’t always free from blame when things go bad. But through it all, the lo-fi indie pop of the Magnetic Fields has helped him find some understanding through the curious chaos of intimacy, with their incredible 1999 three-volume release 69 Love Songs acting as something of a guidebook.
