''Distortion'' is an album by The Magnetic Fields. It was officially released on January 15, 2008 by Nonesuch Records.

As the album's name implies, several of the musical performances featured were distorted by various means. In particular, this sound quality was influenced by the 1985 album ''Psychocandy'' by The Jesus and Mary Chain. No synthesizers were used to record the album; it is the second in a "no-synth trilogy", after the 2004 album ''i'' and before the 2010 album ''Realism''.

''Distortion'' debuted at number 77 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart, selling about 8,000 copies in its first week. - Wikipedia
