Video: Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros – Man On Fire

Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros brought their brand of psychedelic choral-folk music to the masses, thanks in part to some aggressive placement in commercials, movies and television shows. Led by Alex Ebert, the sprawling hippie collective, who feature everything from guitar to accordion to violin to everything in between, will release their highly anticipated sophomore effort Here on May 29. Last week the troupe stopped by the Ed Sullivan Theater, where they performed Man On Fire, the gospel-tinged lead single from their upcoming record, on the Late Show With David Letterman.

  1. I wouldn’t call them a “hippie collective”. More like an actor taking on a role, with a band of hired musicians. Read interviews with the guy about how he came up with the “concept” of the band.
    I liked that tune when I heard it, “Home”, but I can’t stomach it or anything else from this guy now that I know that it is just a wise marketing decision that he made.

  2. you “know” that? You’re talking pure nonsense. I know “this guy” a lot better than you do, Admiral.

  3. Are you related to him, Mr. Ebert? If so, then you must be biased. If not, then you are a boob.
    Read an interview from him, they are not hard to find, about how he came up with the concept of the band.
    He is open about it, that is cool, just not my cup of tea.
