Fresh Stuff from Edwarde Sharpe + the Magnetic Zeros

Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros are back with their fourth album, PersonA. This time around, the band is without one of its founding members, Jade Castrinos. As the Guardian reports, the move forced the 10-piece psychedelic indie folk outfit to elevate its musicianship.

“I realised I was no longer going to be able to lean on that cutesy boy-girl dynamic,” says lead singer Alex Ebert, explaining that the band was “a social experiment first, musicians second. “My reverence for music has eclipsed my infatuation with ‘unprofessionalising professionalism’, as I used to gleefully say.”
