Music Wednesday

I first heard the song “Home” by Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros in the movie trailer for the indie-financed Channel News (below).  Of course, if I were more seeped into current music affairs I would have heard them much earlier (as seen below with their appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman last Fall). The band’s music can be described as “Psych-folk” or “Happy Pop”.

Very catchy tune. Simplistic lyrics, but lovely all the same. Home / Let me come home / Home is wherever with you They are currently touring and coming to Los Angeles in May but tickets are very much sold out (natch). All of their summer tour dates are here.

I’m friends with writer/director Jacob Kindberg.  Channel News (Kindberg stars too) is a small scale, charming film about a brother and sister that is currently looking for a distributor.



  1. Someone must have neglected my “Best of 2009” CD since this track was on it.
