Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros

My latest musical obsession is Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros! I think they are my “new Beirut” meaning I have forced all of my friends to listen to it this week. Is that really Alex Ebert from IMA Robot? The sweet song “Home” dueted by Alex and bandmate/gf Jade Castrinos is what pulled me in at first, but when I heard that the beginning of the video for “Desert Song” shows actual footage of Alex’s father in the desert and holding him as a baby while chanting, serving as the jumpoff to a 12-part film Jodorowsky-feel of a film called Salvo!, I knew this was my shit. Let me know if it’s yours too.

I’ve been bumpin’ this shit for months. Even put “Home” on an episode of the hawtline, much to twigby’s chagrin.

He has no taste.
