I’m looking forward to tonight. Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros are going to be at The Collective in Shreveport, LA, and by gosh and golly, I’m going to be there.
My hope tonight is that before things get going Ebes and Jade are going to be mixing about outside like they were in Austin back during the summer when I first learned of this band. Because I was down there for a Gillette event, (not to mention ESATMZ didn’t want us in passing out razors) and because the event supposedly sold out in 30 minutes, we didn’t get in to see the show.
My fascination with this band has all been from watching them in YouTube videos, playing their disc Up From Below about a zillion times, and then of course, anytime Ford runs a Fiesta commercial and they play Janglin, (Um bop, um bop, bop pa pa da bop,) or I saw yesterday that even the NFL has a sport running to buy your favorite team swag and Home was playing as the jingle.
That’s really rare that a band releasing it’s first album has two songs turned into high-profile jingles, but it speaks to the goodness of Up From Below.
This is what love sounds like
As you know, a couple months back I wrote a piece called, This is what love sounds like, based on the way Ebes and Jade sing to each other, and from the video I’ve seen of them. Before the show tonight, I hope to get to interview the two of them and ask them more to help tell this very soul-mate sounding story.
Wish me luck.
