After an early session in Bogalusa, LA, the band has been recording at their studio in Ojai, CA. The album is self-produced and released through Community Music / Vagrant Records.

Hailed by Spin Magazine as a perfect example of rock's new order, Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros will hit the road this March, playing a run of dates showcasing some of the new music and giving fans a taste of what's to come.

Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros recently created and launched a tumblr page to showcase various fan pieces they have and continue to discover on the web as well as their own yet to be unveiled special content.

Around the time that Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros released Up From Below, I read in the music press that singer-visionary Alex Ebert had to go to rehab and get clean and sober before he could create the Edward Sharpe mythos and make this wild dreamy happy music. When I finally got to see this band's live show on the Railroad Revival Tour, I couldn't help being alarmed by Alex's aura of frantic and antics of folly. If this isn't a relapse, it must be some old-time religion.

When gathered as a band, they're not just messengers of love, they're old school troubadours, and they are also poets, painters, photographers, and chefs. On the follow-up album Here, we see some solid evidence that it's not bad drugs but good religion that's cascading all over my ears.

The record shifts from subtle woozy hypnotic gospel pop to overt folksy gospel revival, channeling a mystical mashup of Johnny and June Cash meets John and Yoko with mild dashes of Jack and Meg meets Sonny and Cher. It's all Up With People meets the Allman Brothers down at the groovy altar call. Permanent summer camp is in session, and we're all drunk on the non-alcoholic communion grape juice.

"Man On Fire" launches the ritual with a simple, profound, and grandiose request: "I want the whole damn world/To come dance with me." And the pop ambiance, people's message, and energizing-mesmerizing quality of the band's live shows actually make that possible.

"That's What's Up" reminds us that Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros are still what's up. But it also reassures us that "Home,"Alex's epic duet with Jade Castrinos on the first album, was by no means a fluke. These two can sing to each other in ways that feel more than real.

Really? I know negative reviews tend to be unpopular here, but either this band has lost something or I've lost the ability to appreciate them. Whereas 2009's "Up From Below" had a plethora of irresistible chant-along folk-rock choral epics and was packed with infectious harmonies & addictive melodies couched in big open-hearted anthems, "Here" seems thin and uninspired by comparison. These are down-home hippy commune sing-a-long folk/Americana/gospel tunes with hand-clapping, two-step, crowded back-porch rhythms and dreamy, quasi-religious lyrics. The album really just fails to materialize into anything meaningful or entertaining. Sometimes, at its best, it reminds of the Polyphonic Spree, Dead Man's Bones, Antony and the Johnsons. Mostly, it's just boring. Okay, I guess you can tell I'm disappointed. Ready for the backlash & negative votes.

It has been almost three years since Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros released their debut album. For those of you who had the pleasure of hearing it, the hit single "Home" is likely still stuck in your head. With their long-awaited follow-up record finally here, the biggest question seemed to be as to whether they would be able to build upon their success with a now familiar audience. Unfortunately for Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, that answer is likely no.

Much like Arcade Fire and The Polyphonic Spree, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros are not lacking when it comes to band members. With 11 members at last count, Alex Ebert, the band's lead singer, and company make each song feel like a sing-along. Sometimes they harmonize and sometimes they just throw in the occasional whistle or hoot in the background to add a live feel to their studio recordings, but each member plays a crucial role and helps the music to stand out from a standard four-piece rock band.

Although the number of members makes them relatively unique, to get radio play, the songs have to be more than just unique, they have to be catchy; that is where Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros fall short. "Here" is not a bad record. In fact, as an album, "Here" is significantly more consistent and enjoyable from start to finish than "Up From Below" was in 2009. However, there is one extremely significant missing piece and that is a standout single.

"Home" still receives a great deal of radio play even today because it is completely engaging. It is almost as if you can hear each member of the band smiling as they sing.

I never really got into Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros when I first heard them on the radio with their hit single, "home". I like the song alot, maybe I just passed it off as one of those one hit wonders and didn't feel I needed to investigate them more. I WAS WRONG.

I saw they had a new album being released so I thought i'd give it a go, it was well worth it. This is one of those genre busting bands that you can't put a tag on. Although if I had to it would be gospel/folk. I might have just started a new genre, if so you heard it here first, tell your friends. The first song is a perfect example.... "Man on Fire" this sound could have easily been released from the 60's to present day. To top it off I'm pretty sure there is a didgeridoo in mixed in the song as well. "That's Whats Up" and "I don't want to pray" are really strong songs as well. Mayla is a good one instrumentally but I think they could have left off what minimal singing there was, kind of ruins it. "Dear Believer" is a great tune, they even solve the answer of why we are on Earth in the song... "Reaching for heaven is what I'm on Earth to do..." Just Beautiful, I'm not a religious guy by any means but you can take it any way you want to. "One Water" is a more country-esque song that could have been heard in the 70's rocking out with Lynyrd Skynyrd. And to close it all out they have the dreamy tune "All Wash Out".

Tell your friend to tell their friends, to tell their friends about this one. Now I've got to go listen to their older stuff....
