Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros

It was great catching up with Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros at their sold out show at Austin’s newest live music venue, the Independent.  Last time I saw them was at SXSW eight months ago.  At that time, they had not yet released an album or done much major touring aside from shows in California and a few festival dates.  In fact, most people outside California probably never heard of them.  They are now in a full force multi-month U.S. and international tour in support of their debut album, Up from Below, which has gotten widespread radio play.  This eleven piece ensemble generates massive buzz everywhere they go, their music gets inside the soul and does magic there, and their live performances continue to resonate long after they’re through.  Do yourself a favor and go see them next time they’re passing through your town, and be sure to get their album, their music will do your spirit good.
