Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros


This group has become my favorite band, and I am hoping to see them at Red Rock Amphitheater in June. Alex Ebert has led this community of musicians with Jade Castrinos since 2007 after he left Ima Robot. Folk music needs a sweet sounding large band with a collective sound and lots of instruments. This song is from their album ‘Here’ which was released last year. Some of their songs have become fairly mainstream- but I feel like the band members haven’t. Check out this video to see what I mean.

Cave Singers: Naomi

…Because I couldn’t wait around for the Pitchfork review any longer!

‘Naomi’ came out today as The Cave Singers’ 4th album with much anticipation since they released ‘No Witch’ in 2011. ‘No Witch’ was incredible, not only for folk lovers, but anyone who loves a good foot-stomping, rhythmic melody.

‘Naomi’ starts off with Canopy, a groovy song that gets you ready for a whirlwind of beautiful folk tunes. The third track called No Tomorrow takes you on a steady car-ride through Seattle with Peter, Derek, and Marty. Northern Lights and When the World are also keen tracks to listen closely to.

Every song has its own inspirational feel and  rambling life story. You will not be displeased with any of this 12-track 2013 effort especially if Jagjaguwar puts out a vinyl version.

This album is by far the best they have made and will probably sell well, so if tickets are available get them!
