Alex Ebert / Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros
Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros is a 12 man band from California playing some mixture of folk, indie, gospel and just happy hippy music. I discovered the band some time in 2012 when I accidentally came across Man on Fire in a short film I was watching and I loved the song. Alex Ebert is the frontman of the group but he also put out a solo album titled Alexander in 2011.
This is one of his songs from the solo album and I think it's a brilliant song. I recently watched Breaking Bad and I was thrilled by how perfectly this song was used in the 4th season in the episode Box Cutter.
Here are some few other band songs I like.
And a live one, where they really look like proper hippies..
