The great thing about musical collectives is that you never know what you are going to get. With a multitude of musical influences and tastes it is like making a stew with a lot of different ingredients in that it will always turn out a little different each time. That unknown factor is kinda fun. There is plenty of variety in the sound involved in Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, but it still works all together.
Don’t look for a band member named Edward Sharpe as he is just a fictitious character made up by lead singer Alex Ebert. Neither are there any zeros to be found. The only part of the band title which you can find is the magnetic part as there is definitely something that will pull you towards the music found here. Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros is made up of ten musicians and they need every one of them to create that sound they make. It is full – full sonically and full of energy. With all the clapping and whooping and boogieing that happens you will need plenty of energy to keep up with what these guys are producing. The appeal in the music comes when they seem to abandon all sense of restraint and just play.
