First Listen: Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, ‘Here’

By | May, 22, 2012

Here is your chance to give a listen to the sophomore release, Here, by Folk-Pop darlings Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros. While it hasn’t struck me quite as quickly as their debut album Up From Below, it is definitely another treasure trove of well written pop tunes that exude an overall feeling of peace, love and happiness. Listen to what may be the lead single, “That’s What’s Up”, below.

Stream the entire album over at NPR. The album is slated for release, next Tuesday, May 29th.

Here is a theatrical, extended version of the Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros sing a long “40 Day Dream”. Though this band hails from Los Angeles, not NorCal or the Bay Area like the others this week, they still contain the essence of psych-folk that is present in their California contemporaries. The main difference here is that the songs are more overtly structured in the pop format. As catchy as they sound, they are certainly anything but mainstream, having nothing in common with what you will find on Top 40 radio these days.
