Album Review

"40 Day Dream," the Motown-infused, OutKast-inspired, heavily orchestrated "Beatlesque" soul jam that opens Up from Below, serves as a pretty good litmus test for what follows. Listeners who are put off by the robe-wearing Polyphonic Spree's cultish glazed-eye self-help anthems or cringe when they hear the Mamas & the Papas' "Young Girls Are Coming to the Canyon" would be advised to get off the magic bus early, as Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros have crafted a love letter to Laurel Canyon and all of its quasi-mystic juju that is as infuriatingly contrived and retro as it is forward-thinking and majestic. Formed in 2007 by Ima Robot frontman Alex Ebert, the mammoth 11-piece outfit embraces "the Summer of Love" with enough period beards, fonts, and Eastern mysticism to launch a thousand "Magical Mystery Tours," but despite all of the analog equipment and peacenik grandstanding, standout tracks like "Home," "Desert Song," and the aforementioned "40 Day Dream" sweep you up in their grandeur like a patchouli tornado and dare you to take your clothes off and jump in the lake with them. [Up from Below was also released on LP.]

Customer Reviews

Love it

Home, Janglin and Up From Below are fantastic and the rest of the album is great too. One of the best newer groups to come along in a while. Go to You Tube and see their performance of Home on The David Letterman Show and you will become an instant fan.

Best new band

Love this bands sound and energy! They have a fresh sound but also a taste of the 70's sprinkled in.

I first heard "Home" on the Match Stick Productions feature "The Way I See It". It backed a wistful moment honoring the year's dead in the sport of extreme skiing and mountaineering and the song really held a wonderful resonance within the sequence. Sad, but still uplifting. I think that probably best describes many of the pieces Sharpe et al have put together on this album. "Home" is where the heart of the record is but the rest of the songs are well worth your time.

Biography

Formed: 2009 in Los Angeles, CA

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Formed in 2007 by Ima Robot frontman Alex Ebert after a brief period of existential crisis, the cultish 11-piece indie rock outfit Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros draw their inspiration from the communal musical communities that peppered Southern California (specifically Laurel Canyon) with positive vibrations during the '60s and early '70s. Employing a unique sound that brought to mind a not-so-subtle mix of Parliament, Polyphonic Spree, Bob Marley, and the Incredible String Band, the group...
