As the Southern California ten-piece that has become known for their infectious and endearing whistling-based love song "Home," Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros have had a whirl-wind of a year since they were last in our studios.
They released their debut album "Up From Below" July 7th, 2009, and since then, their music has been featured in commericials, and they've been on tour almost non-stop.
Before their show at the Cabooze, they visited our UBS Forum for a live performance with an audience of Current listeners. Barb Abney chatted with them and discussed how they met, their twelve-part film series and the work they put into making their record.
Songs performed: "40 Day Dream," "Home," "Fiya Wata" and "Up From Below."
