Back in 2009 and 2010, one of the most talked-about bands front-running the indie folk rock circuit was without a doubt Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros. The acclaimed 10-piece captured ears with their unique Western sound and anthemic single, "Home," stunned visually with their desert-set music videos brought people together in concert with their campfire-like singalongs, and garnered stellar reviews for their debut album, Up From Below. But up until a few months ago—aside from last year's much overlooked solo side project from the band's frontman, Alexander Ebert—the Zeros had been rather quiet since they had everyone's attention. After announcing that a new album was on the way and making a formal return with the single "Man On Fire," the Los Angeles-based collective is finally ready to let the world in on what has been cooking up over the past couple of years. Next Tuesday, May 29, the band's sophomore LP, Here, will hit retailers. Until then, the nine-track set can be streamed in its entirety over at NPR. Hit the link and enjoy.
