Meet Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zero's. I had heard about them a few months back from the greatest podcast in the world..."NPR's Tiny Desk Concert" and on Saturday heard the Blaire Reinhard Band rock a great cover of their song "Home". This song exudes happiness in my book. Its light, its free, its happy.
To give you a background of this group, this is the story I just pulled off of Wikipedia. It explains why they are so awesome: "After breaking up with his girlfriend, moving out of his house, and joining a 12-step program for addiction, Ebert began work on a story about a messianic figure named Edward Sharpe. According to Ebert, Sharpe "was sent down to Earth to kinda heal and save mankind...but he kept getting distracted by girls and falling in love." Ebert later met singer Jade Castrinos in Los Angeles. In the summer of 2009, as Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, Ebert and Castrinos toured the country with a group of fellow musicians in a big white school bus."
Again, they are amazing, if you like this head on over to NPR and listen to the 20 minute concert they did. So much fun.
