END MUSIC DISCOVERY: Edward Sharpe
Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros are reportedly working on not one, but two LP's for 2012. They had such a huge schedule of summer festival touring in 2010 and now the bar has been set pretty high. The first of the two albums, Here, hits the shelves of the internet May 29th and the first song "Man on Fire" found it's way to the webz:
So why are they releasing two albums in one year? A press release published by CoS adresses just that:
“In the middle of the recording process we realized we were essentially making a double album. Being four years since our last album, the writing explored a wide variety of subject and sound, as it turned out we had a lot to say. Instead of putting it out all at once, we found that two different albums seemed to be forming. Alone these albums are albums. Together these albums express a varying and so relatively living portrait of our lives.”
So they just wrote a bunch of awesome songs and decided not to go all Billy Corgan on it?
