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.
