Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros are a band of ten to twelve mates, led by frontman Alex Ebert. I think their unique dynamic is best described in their own words. As Ebert describes them: “We decided to go back in time. We got an old 24-track tape machine from 1979 and found a deal on used reels of 2-inch tape. Twelve people playing on 24 tracks, all recorded in live fashion. . . . I’m really proud of the dogma we kept; [the album] has a natural resonance to it.”
Guitarist Christian Letts adds, “There’s nothing about this band that’s ‘band-y.’ We’re kind of an art troupe that plays music.”"This is a case of a group of people coming together at the right time — I don’t even think of it as a band, I think of it as a family.”
If this band is ever rolling through your town, you should stop in and check them out. I hear their live show is fantastic. It is said that Ebert treats each crowd as part of his family as well. “The night [in April] I went into the crowd at the Echo and everybody was singing, you could almost feel their hearts,” he says. Hmm…sounds interesting?

Hecuba : Suffering Isabelle Albuquerque normally takes the spotlight in Hecuba, the LA-based band comprised of her and partner Jon Beasley.

On “Suffering,” the single from their recently released album [...]
I like the realistic yet comic style of Shannon Crawford’s paintings. He uses very strong and iconic imagery in his work which is easy to love or hate. “His oil paintings are subtle depictions of dark concepts, disguised by beautiful, surreal imagery.” Check out his website for updates of new work here.
