I’ve had a (not so secret) crush on Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros ever since their wonderful début ‘Up From Below‘ was first released in the summer of 2009 and became the soundtrack to my summer.

Since then I’ve caught the band play differing venues such as the brilliantly intimate Lexington, a chilled day in Victoria Park, a webcast at the Bowery Ballroom as well as last year’s mystical performances at The Old Vic Tunnels.

Three year on from when they burst on the scene and the Zeros are back with new album ‘Here‘. Continuing with the hippie-tinged indie nostalgia they have accustomed us to this album threatens to be as ever-present as its predecessor. Best still it’s been announced that ‘Here‘ is the first of two albums due out this year.

Here‘ is due out later this month on Rough Trade Records in the UK and Community Music/Vagrant in the US.
