You know how something can completely escape your notice until it’s pointed out to you – and suddenly it’s everywhere? It was like that with Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros for me. There’s been a tremendous hum (a more chilled form of buzz) about them online from all corners that I’ve only just tapped [...]
Edward Sharpe looks so much like the ideal Western image of a young Jesus Christ, it’s almost unsettling. Conceptually, that might be half the point, irony and all that good-looking fun as a rock star, or perhaps not. Regardless, Sharpe and his nine, yes nine, Magnetic Zero friends make one hell of a wanderlust band — and we can’t wait to see them again on their current stateside tour. In particular, we’d like to acknowledge that awesome old-school bus of theirs (though it’s probably not all that good for the environment).
