With an even more folky, retro vibe than their last album comes indie rock band Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes’ “Here.” The album has only nine tracks, and kicks off with the simple and sunny “Man on Fire,” a tune strung together with their classic whistled melodies and hippie, joyous lyrics. The energizing vocal harmonies between lead singers Alex Ebert and Jade Castrino resonate from their last album into many of the tracks from “Here,” but this time around with a more laid-back feel that gives this sophomore album a new layer of honesty.
The Zeroes’ last album, “Up From Below,” hit commercial success with its catchy sing-along, “Home,” attracting listeners with its quirky-cute lyrics and catchy folk chorus. The band was created as a character outlet for Alex Ebert, the lead singer who in this band plays Edward Sharpe. Ebert has said Sharpe “was sent down to Earth to heal and kinda save mankind… but he kept getting distracted and falling in love.” Nevertheless, these soulful, healing intentions string “Here” together and make for a genuine and spiritual second album.
The Zeroes stay true to the timeless folk that their sound was founded on, but the quieter, more subdued version that this album creates is a refreshing change. The simple honesty of the lyrics never overruns the sound that carries it, blending into a well-balanced listening experience. The chill honestly of the album’s sound makes you want to take what the Zeroes are singing to heart, so when during “Man on Fire” Ebert simply and honestly sings, “I want the whole d*** world to come dance with me,” it’s hard to resist doing just that.
Though mostly refreshing, the simplicity of the album can at times fade into dullness. With only nine tracks, there seems to be a powerful punch of glimmering emotion that just doesn’t ever quite come. The throwback ‘70s family-band vibe is fun and different, but there are moments that you feel the band is just playing dress-up in a bin of songs that belong to someone else.
For fans who appreciated the track “Up From Below” on the Zeroes’ last album as an underappreciated gem, “Here” will fill your cup with similarly soothing, comfortable energy. It’s the kind of album you want to pop into the tape player that you wish you still had, and sing along to on a drive back home.
