An Earful of Home

Remember the poppy-synth-y schizo-mania of Ima Robot? Enter Alex Ebert, vocalist of Ima Robot. After a tragic breakup, Ebert realized that he was sent unto earth to be the ale to the corruption of mankind. He took on a nom de plume in an alternate character: Edward Sharpe. Thus, the birth of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros. Sharpe is described as a man who has a duty to save mankind, but on the way, gets distracted by shitloads of girls. Sound familiar? His tunes are home-y, much like his song, "Home." and they are all reminiscent of something you can't quite put your finger on.
