Stoked for Nu Folk

Following on from last fortnight’s minimal electronic extravaganza, my pick for this fortnight has a different take on the psychedelic theme. Until Sunday 6th April Dave and I are listening to Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros’ eponymous third album. This is a band that two separate friends recommended when I asked for new music suggestions, and as someone who has completely missed the Folk revival of the last couple of years (Mumford & Sons, Noah and the Whale etc.) I am looking forward to seeing what all the fuss is about.

Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros was released in 2013, and continues in the Folk/Psychedelia style of the band’s first two albums. In the proud tradition of Nu Folk, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros has a staggering 11 members, plus endless additional touring and recording musicians. You can catch the whole crowd at one of their gigs in Australia or North America this summer, or listen along with us over the next fortnight here.

Each fortnight Fran and Dave choose a new album to listen to. We write about the genre or artist during the fortnight, and post our reviews on Sunday. Want to join the musical adventure? Subscribe by clicking the link in the sidebar to get an email every time there’s a new post.
