Okay, so we thought we were sick of these guys. I mean, once commercial radio got a hold of Home and overplayed every second of that catchy tune we nearly stopped listening to Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros.
However, ever since their new album, Here, dropped on May 29th we’ve become addicted all over again. Aside from Man on Fire, we’re loving the nostalgia in All Wash Out and That’s What’s Up definitely has a similar vibe that Home exuded. Let’s just hope Top 40 doesn’t get their paws on these new favorites.
You can see Polica at The Independent this August (get tickets).
PAPA is performing in the city with Milo Greene this Friday at Rickshaw Stop (get tickets). They’re also playing at Outside Lands this August (get tickets).
Christopher Owens and Chet “JR” White are two locals you want to know. Otherwise known as Girls, Owens and White have a unique sound that has “been compared to the likes of Elvis Costello, the Beach Boys, and Buddy Holly.“
