Album: Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Here (Rough Trade)
The onrush of summer couldn't be more serendipitous for the messiancially-styled Alexander Ebert and his hippyish West Coast brethren.
Balminess, after all, is the chief asset of this second album's slow-rolling, harmonic country-gospel jams, which, in raininer days, one might begrudge for their listlessness and lack of light and shade. Indeed only a couple of tracks, "Man on Fire" and lurching soul-rocker "Fiya Wata", truly emerge from the haze.
