I listened to a rad segment on NPR this morning about Alex Ebert and his band Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros. I had no idea that the hippie used to be an addict. Anyway, their new album Here is out today. You can give it a full listen on NPR here:
Brooklyn’s The Loom’s debut album Teeth is coming out November 1st on Crossbill Records and their single “For The Hooves That Gallop, and the Heels That March” has this pretty video that was premiered on NPR. It’s visually stunning and the song is an eerie folk track with a sultry sax melody, jazz percussion that moves the the falsetto group vocals like a spoon through molasses, and an accosting and powerful driving guitar. I’m not sure I entirely understand the concept for the video, but try to watch it and just absorb beauty. Tour dates for these guys below the break.
